This is a 160 year old cottage in UK which we are doing a complete renovation on. I'm trying to make the kitchen a mixture of modern and traditional. Light, airy and fresh. The cupboards are light cream gloss and the flooring is shown in the photo as a warm oak but not a strong shade. Any suggestions thankfully received!
One of my ideas is to go with a soft, pale duck-egg blue...

Hi Gillysav, here are a few to consider, they are from Daltile and the colours should integrate nicely into your colour scheme. I really tike the St. Moritz

Us small glass tiles, all of one colour. For a house built in the 19th Century, I would prefer a colour tht was in use then. Look at your Wm. Morris planbooks. I think you will see a soft warm green-gold that goes well with food.

Sheets of back painted glass are great because it add a modern touch and less maintenance with no grout. You can pick any paint color and glazer can back paint it the glass. Ask for quote on starfire( no green tint), but typically more expensive.

The glazing contractor uses an adhesive to a waterproof sub straight. In the US we call it green board....

Hi---something to pull your color scheme together and balance cool and warm tones. Your cabinets are almond and floors natural oak so blue tile will show green and your cabinets will look yellow... Good Luck!

Hi gillysav!
I think your idea of doing a pale blue would be really beautiful with the colors and surfaces you've already chosen! The mosaic below was made on our tile designer, and features a light robins egg blue tile, and a clear white tile with an iridescent finish. The layout is pretty traditional, but the colors and finishes of the tile make it more modern.

I think these Tabarka tiles would be beautiful--they have a bit of texture and patina that would lend a touch of history to this new kitchen. That touch would relate to the age of the home, yet they are still very modern and fresh. http://www.missionstonetile.com/products/17-Tabarka/tabarka-fan-shape
