For the past three years we've been living in a flat in London with back-painted glass as a backsplash. It's quite common in higher-end kitchens in Europe. I don't adore the look myself, but it's held up very well and is easy to clean.

Beautiful, Diana. I have to admit that over the past few years, you have single-handedly changed the way I look at decrepit objects in the world. And even after our renovation, your weathered boat photo is still one of my favorite things in our house.

Great post. I think you've single-handedly cured my fears about upkeep of honed Carrera marble and changed my mind about whether it's feasible for a frequent, balls-out, messy cook like me. I'd tried so hard to like engineered quartz just as much as Carrera, but it never happened. Thank you!
