I have had beige, brown, grey, mustard, copper, pewter, and every colour in between. I have ordered samples from Sonoma and Fireclay. Nothing has been quite right. It may look good with the counter, but doesn't mesh with what I want the overall 'look' to be.
So I think white. Soft white to coordinate with the cabs. I had 1 sample that was too yellow. This one looks like a contender (ignore the swirly tiles). I have another sample coming in a more rectangular 2.5× 10 shape or so.
So. What say you? My dh just tells me everything looks good! Thanks!
