Help! Will this back-splash work?

last modified: 6 years ago

My counter-tops are Taj Mahal quartzite. My cabinets are grimslov off-white. stainless steel appliances, polished nickel hardware, chrome faucet.

These back-splashes are both split-faced marble. The one on the left (of stove) is sparkly with lots of grey/white tones, but still incorporates the beige tone from the counter-tops. The one on the right (of stove) is mostly matte in finish and is a soft cream that coordinates well with everything.

I'm IN LOVE with the white/grey/sparkly one. I absolutely love the way it looks in person and seeing it against the wall as my back-splash makes me smile. It's dramatic and I feel like it elevates the room (which is what I'm going for). My dilema is that I can see it's not exactly matchy-matchy like the cream/matte one is...but to me, it still coordinates. Since I'm not a professional, I've asked a few others and they ALL choose the cream/matte and say the white/grey/sparkly one will make my counter-tops look too busy. Any professional designers/semi-profesh/you just have hella good taste people who will let me know if what I want will work or not? Thanks so much for your input.
