Backsplash for Delicatus granite
We're building a new house. We went to the granite warehouse today and I fell in love with Delicatus White, which we purchased. We are going with a glazed white cabinet (which is creamy), and I think it works really well with the granite. I love the look of a light, white kitchen, but don't want one that feels "cold". I had been thinking about doing a subway tile backsplash, but they all made my cabinets look really yellow. Plus, my fiance isn't a big fan of the shiny subway tile look.
We are fairly restricted in our choices, as our builder would prefer that we purchase from one store. We tentatively picked an octagon patterned travertine tile backsplash, but now I'm afraid it might be too busy. On the other hand, the darker pieces do tie in with the grays in the granite. The alternative would be a tumbled travertine subway shape tile...but I think the beige stone seemed to have pink undertones, which I don't want.
I've included a pic of our granite slab (it reads more blue here than it is). What do you all think? Should we stick with our original pick (pic in the next post), or go with the simpler stone (that isn't the color that I love)?
