An idea to fix a broken tile area. Don't tear out the wall of tile, make light of it! Caulk the broken/missing tile to waterproof, then add an air fern (kitchen backsplash) or a fake plant (shower or tub area).
The lushness all the plants provide is amazing to me; No idea how to do something like that when one has three asshole cats, though. Interior designer Sera Hersham-Loftus's bohemian, plant-filled home in Little Venice, London, UK
