My cabinets are natural maple, and have saint celcilia granite cabinet tops and what do you think about Tumbled Picasso Roman pattern for a backsplash. Need some help please. thanks

I agree, the backsplash looks like it was made for that countertop.

The combination is very nice if you want to keep those brown tones uninterrupted and want a solid stone look. If you want to add other colors or textures to your kitchen, you could find a way to introduce them here too. A bs can brighten a space in a single color by adding a new texture, like the glass arabesques below,

reflect light and bring a sense of shimmer, like the shell tiles shown here,

or even add a touch or color, like these iridescent aqua tiles below.

What do you want your bs to do for you?

I thought I posted, so if there is a duplicate sorry. I have to say that your choice will be overload for your counters. Yes the colors coordinate, but it will be too much together.
I would rather see one of the creams from the granite and you can jazz it up with some accent pieces.
I have seem too many people do what you are proposing to do only to be unhappy and tear it out.
That said, we all have different tastes and if you are thrilled with this combination than go for it.

I also think it is lovely, but too busy. I have a lot going on in my marble counters. I found a mosaic that picked up all the colors. It looked great when I taped the sample to the wall, but when the first sheets went up it was awful and down it came. Then I tried using it as an accent with plain glass subways and again it was really bad. So from my prospective you can only have one star. I do however, sometimes like a mosaic or something interesting behind the stove/cooktop.

I agree Too much of the same. I fell in love with a match and then realized too much of the same.
I would try to pull in the colors with an accent.

Maybe you should post a picture with a broader view of your kitchen so we can see the feel of it, it may be the exact feel you are going for.
For me, personally, it's a lot of brown. It definitely matches, but it is what I call matchy-matchy. If you like dark, and you like matching- go for it.

It would be neat to pull a color or two out of the granite and use that. It is a bit busy.
