We have Sedna granite installed and oak cabinets. Trying to decide on a backsplash! The window treatments and green paint are to be redone as well.

I might suggest glass tiles or subway tiles. I found some over http://www.glasstilestore.com. Check out some samples.

it's hard to tell what colors components are in the granite... but it's prett dark as is the oak. I'd do something in the same tone but lighter. and brighten up the walls with a tan or beige too.

Sorry, I am not the greatest photographer! Here is a photo of the island that shows colors a bit better. Also a tile sample that a decorator chose, but I am wondering if it is too dark.

i think that's a bit dark... I'd try to play up some of that gold/orange.

Wow, very pretty! I haven't seen much with the amber/orange. Does the Golden Road come in larger squares? I think the 1/2" would be too busy. Unless we used it as a border with a larger travertine tile?

you've already got gold in the room with those pendants... you could also pick a caramel tone for the walls, it would be a very decadent treat to be in your kitchen... like chocolate, gold and caramel...

Travis, what color of travertine are you thinking? Is the tile sample above (my photo) considered a travertine? I am new to this...

I love what Genevieve selected! I would use that tile with a golden toned tumbled stone. Your granite countertop is gorgeous!! I attached a picture of my backsplash. I used a mosaic with a tumbled stone in gold.
