Amadeo I (1845 – 1890) was the only King of Spain from the House of Savoy. He was the second son of King Vittorio Emanuele II of Italy & was known for most of his life as the Duke of Aosta, but reigned briefly as King of Spain from 1870 to 1873. He was elected by the Cortes as Spain's monarch in 1870, following the deposition of Isabella II, & sworn in the following year. He abdicated & returned to Italy in 1873, & the First Spanish Republic was declared as a result.
Sometimes backsplashes should allow other materials (like cabintry) bask in the limelight. In this Portland project, Jessica Helgerson Interior Design selected white Savoy 1”x4” stacked tiles from Ann Sacks for both the kitchen and bathroom. Photo by Grant Harder.
