Homeowners Mimi and Jerome fell in love with a very spendy decorative tile and wanted to incorporate it into the backsplash of their butler’s pantry, but hated the thought of shelling out big bucks in a lower-priority space. By featuring the beautiful charcoal and travertine scalloped mosaic as a small decorative detail and surrounding it with more affordable travertine tile, Mimi and Jerome have their cake and get to eat it, too!



A gorgeous charcoal marble countertop and white cabinetry complete the look.
