Impermanent Fixes to "Hideous" Rental Kitchen?

Impermanent Fixes to "Hideous" Rental Kitchen?

Q: I have a problem with the kitchen (larger photo below) in the condo that I rent. I can not change the cabinets, the tile, or the granite tops. While a lot of people might love the look of the kitchen, I think it is hideous. The countertop is super modern, the tile is mexicana, and the cabinets are americana country! And I'm none of that.

I would describe my decor style to be very very close the french country but with a little eclectic twist in small details. I was wondering if there is ANYTHING I can do to this kitchen that is not permanent? The most desirable situation is to somehow cover the tiles because I can live with the cabinets and the dark countertop, but that tile is an eyesore!
