Please post your granite, floor tile, and backsplash combinations

I have been searching for something that gives recommendations for floor and BS that goes with my granite and I am really surprised at the lack of information.

Arizona Tile has limited suggestions, and a search on Houzz is fairly useless because most of the searches come up with guesses from other people.

So here it is, and I hope it will be helpful to other people too.

My granite is Kashmir Gold, but feel free to list your granite and what you put with it.

I haven't posted 'close to finished' kitchen photos yet, nor of the solution to my backsplash dilemmas of a)what to use and b) where to end the tile before a doorframe, but will hopefully soon. Floor just went in this week.

Granite: golden crystal (pretty busy)
Backsplash: (plain due to busy granite) 3x12 Crossville unpolished porcelain in Empress White (same as kellinoelle)

Flooring: Wicander cork planks in Harmony. We love the way it looks and feels.

Here's the cabinets and granite:

Suzannes, I love your colors, especially the way you picked out the blue in the granite. I picked a light travertine, but it's not really the shape I want so I'm still looking.

marti - The blue in the granite was what inspired us to do the blue in the kitchen and the attached dining room. So then we did a gray-blue in the living room, and a really light gray in the hall, and it just kept going! If you're looking for a trim color, Benjamin Moore's Bavarian Cream is a great match to the light colors in the Kashmir Gold.
