Teddy Roosevelt was known for speaking softly and carrying a big stick, but he was not known as a big drinker. It is said that he occasionally enjoyed a mint julep before bed, but that's about it. When a small-town newspaperman called Teddy a drunk, the president sued him, and won!
Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 8 answersWhy did you choose this?TileBar StoreI was looking for tile for an inset behind our gas cooktop and the example picture for this tile was exactly what I wanted. I hope it looks as good in person as it does in the picture!!Joan E K on Apr 14, 2015If one would choose this Filigree Maize Marble Tile for use as an accent as they picture above a cook top, then which color marfil rectangular tile would go with it as is pictured in the rest of the back splash? I don't see any called "Filigree Maize".BEST ANSWER: This "Filigree" basket weave, in the "maize" color combination, has 3 different marbles in it: crema marfil (which seems to be the marble chosen to surround it, on the web site), light emperador marble (the beige colored part of the weave), and dark emperador marble (the "dots" in between the weaves). Therefore, any of these 3 marbles would compliment this mosaic tile well. Of course, these are all neutral colors, so you could choose another earth toned color tile fairly "safely" as well.Which picture mold/chair rail piece is used in the 3rd picture where the Filigree Maize Marble Tile is framed out over the cook top? I'll assume it's one of your Crema Marfil "border" pieces but which one?BEST ANSWER: Chair Rail Crema Marfil 2x12 Marble Liner
