Help with selecting a backsplash for costa esemerelda granite

nss163February 22, 2012

Hi everyone,

I'd greatly appreciate any advice and guidance you can provide with selecting a nice backsplash for costa esmerelda granite in the kitchen. Any pictures from those of you that have costa esmerelda in your homes would be fantastic!

We are using white cabinets and dark wood floors (like cumaru or brazilian cherry). We're going for a transitional look....something between contemporary and craftsman. I've attached a picture of the slab and will send a follow-up couple of notes with pictures of two possible backsplash options....can figure out how to upload more than one picture at a time.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Natalie,

We are doing the same kitchen! Wondering what you ended up with and if you would mind sharing some pictures. How do you like the Costa Esmerelda?? It is a beautiful granite- very warm. Did you go white white on the cabinets or off white.
