Late to the Party

I’m always late to the party when it comes to things like this.  But here I finally am… a newbie on Pinterest


If you’re on Pinterest and want to follow along as I pin, click here or click the Pinterest link on my side bar. 


What a clever idea… organizing all things that inspire in one spot.  I’m digging it! 


I’ve been collecting images of kitchens with subway tiles, as I think we’re headed in that direction with our new kitchen.  Late to the party on that one too! 


Hopefully not too late that it will look outdated in a few years.  To me, subway tile is classic.  I  suppose time will tell!  What do you think?  Is it timeless or a trend already on the way out?


On a different note, I want to give a big shout-out to Rebecca Razo for including some of our bedroom and bath images in the Fall issue of Bedrooms and Baths.  Thank you Rebecca!



  1. Congrats on the magazine feature! Your home is so cheerful and livable. regards, andrea@townandprairie

  2. I think Timeless ... even though it appears to be extra popular right now. At least I hope so because I didn't get mine in yet either. Thanks for hosting!

  3. I am having trouble posting. Hope this is not a repeat. :)
    Congrats on your magazine spread, I am not at all surprised by this. Your home is lovely and livable.
    Years ago I went with a classic terra cotta tile in my kitchen. I love it more each day. The white trend has come in strong but a classic is timeless and my tiles are still warm and welcoming and beautiful. I believe the subway will be timeless too. Go for it!

  4. Subway tile... timeless!! At least that is what I'm banking on. I have beadboard backsplash throughout my large farmhouse kitchen, and as much as I love it, it is NOT practical in the least! I'll leave the beadboard around the island, but my goal is to rip it out above the counters and put in the subway tile. However, knowing that we do not move fast in this family, it could be two years from now!

  5. I have white subway tile in my kitchen and I love it. When we redid the kitchen, I kept it. That's timeless!!

    Congrats on your feature...I'll have to pick the magazine up!


  6. Hi there Rie,
    We, too, have recently moved and although our English Tudor style house had good bones, it required a kitchen and bathroom gut, as well as a lot of cosmetic TLC. I think that subway tile is a classic that is just passing through also as a trend right now. Although, I must say--sometimes I think something is a trend because I'm drawn to inspiration photos that are similar to my design taste. If I were to look at photos that were not to my taste, I'm sure that there are many different trendy products also being used right now!
    I am biased, though, as we just used white subway tile as our kitchen backsplash. It is cheap and won't date itself! I'm more worried about my cabinets as I chose to have them painted Martha Stewart's Sharkey Gray. They are stunning, but hopefully not a trend!!
    Can't wait to see your choices,

  7. Our builder accidentally installed light-grey subway tile (it was supposed to be white) while we weren't looking but when we saw it next to our white cabinets and black countertops we fell in love! I think it's a slight twist on a classic and something I haven't seen much. Happy mistake, but I still think white is super classic. How could it not be?!

  8. I think subway tiles will always be a classic. YOu see them in homes from a hundred years ago and they will definitely stand the test of time.

  9. Absolutely timeless! We plan on installing subway tiles as a back splash {kitchen} for our fixer upper home that we just moved into! :) It will most def stand the test of time! :)


  10. Happy Pinning!!! It's quite addicting :-)

  11. So glad you are on PINTEREST....I am following you now!!! Almost sounds like stalking. Absolutely not!!!

    Hope you are having a great week. Love your posts.

  12. I have loved subway tile for years...and it is still popular...and I think it is timeless. We visited several historical houses that had a form of subway tile, too.

    Congrats on the Bedroom and Bath display-xo Diana

  13. i think it's timeless! i l.o.v.e. white vintage kitchens! come to think of it i have a white vintage kitchen! ;) can't WAIT to see what you do!!!

  14. Congrats on being featured! Welcome to Pinterest! It is a bit addicting but soooo fun! And your subway tile pictures are fabulous!

  15. Well deserved praise for your lovely home! I guess the votes are in and subway tile it is haha. Really white, off white or light gray will never goes out of fashion. I think it's the different stones and glass back splash that people will tire of. I've had both the tile and bead board. I have to say I love both wood and soft white tile. I too was afraid the bead board would be hard to maintain but it's worked out great for us. Right now I'm really into using lots of wood. You have plenty of it in your home so the tile will be a nice contrast.


  16. Congratulations on being featured..I think your kitchen is timeless and I love the subway tile..Have a great week..

  17. love the dark floors and subway tile combo!

  18. Years ago I went with a classic terra cotta tile in my kitchen. The white trend has come in strong but a classic is timeless and my tiles are still warm and welcoming and beautiful.

  19. We just installed marble subway tile in our kitchen (still a work in progress). I feel that it's classic too and I don't think I'll ever tire of it. I think it's a great choice.

  20. There’s this something about cream and white paints that always seems to fascinate me, especially when they’re used on kitchen walls. I think it’s because of my love for vintage and Victorian designs. Plus, being neat and tidy is the key to a dazzling kitchen. And having white paint, furniture and decors would encourage the owner to clean the kitchen more often because dirt is evident in white. :D


I love hearing from you!
