    I love the blue colour.   However, I would opt for the white tiles.   It makes it much easier to change things up if you want to re-do in a few years.  Tiles are expensive and hard to change.  Paint is cheap and easy to change.   It probably also makes it easier for resale value in the futre.  I say go for white subway tiles which are classic, and blue paint.

    I would do the blue tiles with the cream walls. Since you’ll be putting the teal le creuset dishes on the walls I think the neutral cream will help the color to pop and tie the tile in.

    Cream or white tiles.  They’re going to be cheaper than blue (and extra cash is always good).  Also, they translate better – imagine you want to redo the kitchen AGAIN because you decide you don’t like blue.  If the tiles are blue, you’re boned.  If the walls are blue, you can just repaint.  If you’re thinking about selling the place ever, this would translate better for others, too…for the same reason.

    I’d go with a blue with more gray in it than the enamel color you posted, but that’s just me.  And it’s just paint.

    I like the idea of white tiles with the gray/blue paint, so I voted other.

    I’d stick with cream tiles it’s more neutral and definetly a safer choice. Paint colour can easily be changed.

    Love the colour of your Le Creuset

    From those pictures (and it could be the lighting in each) I don’t know if the duck egg tile color goes very well with the teal. I’d go more for neutral colors all over and pops of color in things that can be changed, but I’m incapable of loving anything but the color blue (in every shade) for more than 20 minutes. 🙂

    Also, this couple just renovated thier Victorian kitchen, I liked the tile they used. http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/renovation-diary-andis-kitchen-184099 (scroll down for the reveal post)
