kitchen decision

We are considering crema bordeaux granite in the kitchen. Our cabinets are natural cherry and the appliances are stainless steel. Because the kitchen does not have a lot of natural light we thought white subway tiles for the back splash. My friends are all recommending beige travertine. Am I a design misfit?

My initial notion, 01, is to join with you in your misfit state. Your natural cherry will show a good bit of color variety (even increasing somewhat over the years), and your crema bordeaux also has a lot of color movement. So I'm thinking that travertine might be a bit much as a companion. If you decide that white is too stark for you, a soft beige solid-colored porcelain tile might do well also - and maybe a larger format than the 3 x 6 subway would let the granite show off most grandly. Have fun! Mark

Travertine and granite? They will compete, obviously.
