Suggestions for b-splash to go with Kashmir White counters?

Hello,

We finished my parents cottage kitchen about 6 months ago, and have been procrastinating on the b-splash.

It's a sunny, white kitchen, with Kashmir white counters that have a lot of cool, light greys and also a bit of warmer cream and tan.

The walls are a very, very soft green--almost a tinted white.

My mom doesn't care for rectangular, subway type tile. We'd like something pretty clean and simple, so porcelain or ceramic is fine, although natural stone would be an option.

Wondering if anyone has suggestions, or if you can post pics of your Kashmir white counters with b-splash.

Any help would be appreciated--I just don't know which direction to go here!

Thanks

Madeline :)

Don't know if a smaller format tile would meet your criteria, but I love the gray penny tile that the Young House Love bloggers used in their kitchen (see link below), and think it might look nice with Kashmir white.

Here is a link that might be useful: gray penny tile

I have subway tiles, but I know it's not a look everyone wants or needs. I still like 4" square tiles set on a diagonal, with or without a contrasting edge or liner. It's simple and unpretentious and has a cozy vibe.

We have Kashmir gold and went with a travertine in a mini-Versailles pattern. We added in the blue glass squares.

I also like linelle's idea of 4" white or off-white squares set on a diagonal.
