grout color for subway and carrera marble

going to be grouting a white glazed subway tile tub surround and 2" hex honed carrera marble floor soon. Last time I did subway tile I used a silver grout. Does anyone have any suggestions for a very classic looking grout for this combination. I do not want to do white. Thanks.

What was wrong with the silver?

silver or gray

There are cool silvers and warm silvers. Are you planning on using the same grout for both tiles? I have used Latacrete's Silver Shadow with great results. It, to me, is a cool silver.

Do a sample board! Do not grout without this test.

Soon I will be grouting the shower porcelain, and using Latacrete's Sterling Silver, which is warmer to me, and slightly darker, so I will be mixing with some white in a 1:2 ratio. One part Sterling and 2 parts White. I have done this with my other installations with excellent results.

The Silver Shadow is very light though and I didn't lighten that one with my first bath remodel.

Here is my current sample board:

I had used the Calacatta Supreme marble tiles along with the white glazed tiles shown here. The Calacatta Supreme comes in a gold, grey and white colors so you can choose the color that best suits your white glazed tiles from these.
