Make a Splash With a Fleur-de-Lis Backsplash
Written by Milan Jara on 28th Apr 2012
One of the most popular design elements is the fleur-de-lis. Probably named after the river Lys, by whose French waters it grows, this stylized lily design has origins shrouded in myth and mystery, dating all the way back to Charlemagne, and possibly even back to the Garden of Eden. It has been used by French kings as far back as Philip I in 1060 AD to symbolize royalty. In America, it has been popular for many years in areas such as as New Orleans’ French Quarter.
Whatever its true origins, the fleur-de-lis is now used not only as a symbol of patriotism but also as a beautiful decorative icon. Now you can add that feeling of legendary style to your home with our new three-inch fleur-de-lis backsplash.
If you’re looking for a way to both protect and enhance the appearance of your French Country kitchen, look no further than this beautiful fleur-de-lis backsplash.
Installed under a kitchen window, this antique copper finish backsplash sparkles with reflected sunlight.
