Selecting a backsplash

7 months ago

I am remodeling the kitchen in the photo below, keeping the floors and chimney stone as they are.

The new refrigerator will go on the wall with the fireplace stone, with cabinets surrounding it and on the near side of the stone, as well as filling in where the refrigerator was and on the other side of the peninsula. I am refacing some cabinets, having new cabinets built. The cabinetry colors are SW Wool Skein and SW Shade-Grown, with Wool Skein (a light beige) going on the left side of the kitchen, the dark green on the refrigerator wall. There will be backsplash on the window wall and the wall to its right. The stove is in the peninsula. The countertops will be leathered black granite.

Here are photos that gives you a sense of what the kitchen will feel like.

Okay! The question: I want to select a backsplash that will work with all the busy-ness of the stone and knotty pine floors. Do you think these are too busy? I am not a fan of subway tile and besides I'm going with the English cottage vibe a bit.
