Vintage Labels on Marble Tile Murals and Wall Displays

Vintage Marble Tile Murals and Wall Displays for Kitchen Backsplashes and Countertops

By Mark J. Donovan

It’s refreshing to note that gone are the days that countertops and backsplashes have to match. There are no decorating rules. The focal point in your kitchen, wine cellar, bathroom, etc. evolves with adding the personal touches that are close to your heart.

Nothing sets the stage for vintage comfort like a vintage marble tile mural or marble tile wall display in images and labels borrowed from the past. A new and personalized way to showcase a collection of memorabilia, ephemera, or images.

A marble backsplash mural or wall display makes the perfect complement for antiques, beautiful china, flea market finds, vintage furnishings, garage sales, ephemera, trade show collections, or bottles of a favorite wine or brew.

The images are baked into the marble so the quality of the marble with its shading, nicks, crannies and rounded edges become part of the old world, vintage and European effect.

For example, perfume label art, dated from 1894 – 1905, baked on Tumbled Marble Tiles, creates an unusual wall decor for the bath, dressing room, powder room, spa, and/or country club.

Alternatively, the art can be imprinted onto plain botticino tumbled marble tiles, where they can be interspersed amongst other tiles on each wall.

An important trend in decorating is “chic and shabby”. Perfume labels on tiles are an important accessory to this theme. Alternatively, wine label images on tumbled marble tiles create a wine collectors dream environment.

Looking for something different? Vintage Veggie, fruit or flower seed packets transferred onto marble for a kitchen backsplash, pantry or garden room. Crazy about pets? Vintage cat and dog food can labels on tiles will complete your pets Bark Avenue suite.

A dressing area with old hotel and airline tiles randomly placed on a marble wall as a backdrop for your favorite vintage Louis Vuitton trunk– ooh la la.

Your imagination is the only limit to the types of vintage labels that can be installed on tiles.
