granite colors to go with terracotta floors with an accent piece.

I'm hoping I can figure out how to attach a picture so you can see the tile floor that I'm keeping in my kitchen. It's terracotta (pinkish beige) color with a Mexican 4 x 4 accent piece. The cabinets will be cherry (will try to attach also) and all the appliances will be stainless. Please help with granite colors that I should use!!!! The kitchen design center suggested typhoon bordeaux, juparan vyara and golden beach but it's so hard to choose from a 12 x 12 sample!!! I do plan to go to a granite yard but it is soon but would like to know if you could give me a direction with the counters. I would like to keep the counters on the medium to light side. I love earth tones and like the veining and movement in granite more than the speckled and consistent granite patterns. Please help.

Thank you.

RE: granite colors to go with terracotta floors with an accent pi

I just came back from 2 yards today, this is our second go-round remodeling the kitchen. This time we're going above where our design went when we first moved in. All I can say is it's time consuming, and the only way to really know what you like and what looks like it's supposed to look like is going in person. On-line is a good start, I listed about 15 pieces I wanted to see, and immediately knocked it down to 3 after spending 2 hours there. The color differences are incredible. We have one more yard tomorrow, and hopefully I'm done. I can tell you from what I saw today, nothing looked like it did online, and tomorrow I go without my husband. Way too stressful for him ;) We are loving Van Gogh, but have to get a price. I hope you find what you're looking for, and post when you do!
