Need help picking a backsplash

I can't find a backsplash I like. My granite countertops are called sapphire blue, but mainly black and brown shades with a slight subtle light blue to them.

a nice way to emphasize the subtle blue, yet tie all colors together is to look at mosaic glass tiles. They often have 2-4 colors that will alternate horizontally. If you go to a tile showroom, or a kitchen and bath showroom, they will be able to help you select a coordinating mosaic that will compliment the colors. I used to work in such a showroom, so I know that blue and tan are a relatively common combination. I suggest bringing a sample of your countertop with you so that you can accurately match the tones and hughes.

I agree. I think a tile that is more horizontal than vertical or square would create a nice height under your cabinets. There are a ton of choices out there....perhaps something with both blue and brown accented tiles? If you are looking for just a 4" backsplash, perhaps something solid would look better (a black granite maybe). Nice kitchen by the way coach...
