Hello friends…..we are putting subway backsplash all around kitchen. The subway tiles have shades of brown, gray and blue. Questions are

1. should I do blue accent tiles behind the stove( from countertop reaching celing).

2. should i do blue accent only like a square behind stove

3. Keep simple, with only subway tiles all around is same direction with no accent

4. Accent square with same subway tiles arranged like square in herring bone pattern. I gave gold faucet. so thinking to do golden square tile border with same subway tiles arranged in different manner. one thing i am worrried is will horizontal strokes design will good with diagonal strokes in herring bone pattern? May be this will be nice accent?

5. Accent tiles from top to bottom reaching celing with same subway in verticle manner and all around horizontal manner.

- Counter top is white Quartz with very light grey veins.

- No island yet, but planning to do blue island.

- All other cabinets are brown currently which may change to light griege

in future.

Attaching few pics. Kindly suggest!!! Thank you!
