Backsplash decision, photo

10 years ago

Hello, I was thinking I'd do a honed marble subway tile, and I still may, but I'm looking at some alternatives because I'm just not sure. In this photo I have 2 sample boards from a local tile shop and I made my own board of some subway.

The island is white macaubus with black paint below; and the perimeter is leathered antique brown with white paint. I am feeling like the honed marble subway is to boring or something. The marble that is diagonal is maybe too traditional. I like the one with the tiny strips - that is a mixture of glass and marble. regardless of what I do on the majority of the areas, I would like to do something different in the recessed area behind the cooktop.

I'm open to suggestions. It's a great room also and has a breakfast table, so I was planning on using all those fabrics, rugs, accessories for the color and keeping the hard surfaces in the kitchen more neutral, but I'm not entirely sure right now.
