Now we turn that "classic subway" look on its head. As you'll see, it's not all that difficult to do.

The only difference is that, instead of white, we are now using two different colors: Architectural Gray and Almond. Both are from South Cypress, manufactured by Daltile. Size: 3"x6".

Instead of horizontal, the tiles are installed vertically as a kind of backsplash-that-continues-forever (or at least until the ceiling).

Brickwork is the simplest tile pattern, in which the neighboring row advances half a tile length.
