Need assistance with back splash.

I haven't been able to find a mosaic that goes well with the counter, so I'm leaning toward a solid color. Should I pull from the white in the counter and find a subway tile? I don't think I want to carry the wall color over. Is there a third option I'm not considering?

Could you post a pic of the entire wall area.

From the first plan to match the wall. I'm not sure the room will always be this color, so I don't think this is wise. Match the white in the counter top instead?

Personally, I would do a lighter tile. If you wanted to do a mosaic you could also do solid tile with a stripe of mosaic in the middle?

That tannish color clashes with your reddish cabinets.

Tara has a good suggestion. I say a mini brick Solid light colour Mosaic that blends with the marble.

I think darker would look good. You could do something like this.

Also I think the current title floor clashes... Changing the tile to be closer to the counter top with the darker backsplash. Maybe the brown in the tile I posted should be more closer to you cabinet color

In my opinion, you can never go wrong with with subway tile and they will never go out of style. Either white or cream.

I'm not sure if you mentioned the type of stone but it looks like Kashmire White to me??? If so the colors in that stone are cool - white, gray w/garnet... I know you've paid for it but I would remove the granite backsplash and tile down to he deck - keeping the granite portion competes too much with whatever you decide to choose. There is a stainless subway tile that would look awesome but if that's too contemporary I'd go with a white subway tile like Dana Pope suggested - it's classic and traditional...

I agree with many. Change the floor tile to go with your counters, pull out the current backsplash and tile from the bottom of the top cabinets to the counter in a white subway. Sonoma Tile is a beautifully made subway.
