Fantasy Brown Backsplash decision

11 months ago

Help! We are in the middle of our kitchen Reno and it is time to chose the backsplash. Here are the details and my question follows:

Cabinets - Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee

Walls - Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige

Appliances - stainless steel with matte gold knobs

Faucets - luxe gold

Cabinet hardware - champagne bronze

Lighting - recessed, & 2 crystal pendants over island. There are no windows in the immediate kitchen area.

Countertops: Fantasy Brown soft quartzite (NOTE - we have a lighter and creamier version with heavy apricot throughout. Photos make them look darker than they are.)

Sloped Hood - Swiss coffee with matte gold strapping
Question: With all that is going on in the kitchen, can I get away with an arabesque tile? Or would I be better off using a subway tile with an arabesque insert over the range?

MSI colors antique white, portico pearl and dove gray seem to match well. Dove gray may be too dark though. Does anyone have any other color suggestions?

Aside from subway or arabesque tiles, would a square 4x4 tile, like the Montauk Collection work better? Sand dune seems to match well.

Thanks for any and all assistance / suggestions!

Hood - not yet installed and not that brassy as shown.
