Shimmering Lights

calyle7September 28, 2013

I have fell in love with this tile...It is called shimmering Lights by allen + roth
I am going to post a picture...but it doesn't begin to show it's beauty nor the true color...It does pick up the browns of my floor and the tranquility blue of my paint color....

But I feel it will be too much for the entire back splash...so I want to do it behind the stove and behind the 15" cabinets on each side of the stove......the other areas I want to do something more subtle.....Please advise me on what you think will go with this.
I thought about doing a 4" strip at the base of the granite..so it can flow behind my sink....But don't know what else to use...
Please help!
thanks

My first impression is too busy for your granite. If you care to post a picture of your kitchen - taken from straight on - I will photoshop the tile for you.

Can you track down a better picture of the tile (or what is the name of it and who is the mfr?). I don't think the one you posted will do it justice.

Best, oldbat2be

My granite is not near as busy as it looks....It is Bianco Ramano...but doesn't look like a lot of B R's I have seen.
I took the picture way too close...so neither the granite nor the tile looks true.
Name of the tile is shimmering lights by allen + roth
The tile is not near as dark as it looks in picture.
I will take a picture of the not completed kitchen next week, once the rest of the granite is installed....
The fabricator and crew had a accident on Friday and the counter top with the sink cutout got broke...so hopefully it will be delivered by Tuesday of next week.
thanks
