Trying to choose my Accent tile for the kitchen

I thought I had one picked out, but I am having second thoughts.

Idea1, was to introduce a little pop of color by lining a slender row of arabesque tiles above my shelf in between the white subway tile. I actually still really like this idea. However, I think once the shelf is in and I start designing and choosing what to put on the shelf.. that the tile in the back might make it too busy

idea2 is to leave the tiles above the shelf as subway tiles. This leaves a clean slate to put whatever I want on the shelf and have that be the focus. So Instead I was going to do the over the stove accent tile. However, I don't like the over the stove with the colored tile from above. I think it makes it too heavy. However, I do love these neutral calacatta tiles that would look nice over the stove.
