Trying to do this on my own! Orange and brown are back of booths. Seat of booths are the small sample. Wood piece is color of tables and chairs. Adding a picture of light fixtures, not sure if these will work! Tile sample is for entrance and waiting area and around juice bar. Need help with wall colors and any other advice welcome! Tile color and design for back splash behind juice bar also! Thank you!

Here is a Sherwin Williams "read" on your posted colors. Red is said to stimulate appetite, so maybe that darker Spicy Hue would have a similar effect. If you want folks to hang around and relax, the blues or beige tones might be better. Just some thoughts...

I like what you have so far. I would find a color in the brown fabric for a paint color, like the mustard yellow or sage green. As far as the tile for back splash I would stick with the horizontal pattern shown in your brown fabric. Like a brick pattern.

Wisconsin Woodworks, thank you! I was thinking in the yellow family as well for the walls! Now do I add a pop of color in the backsplash? Was thinking browns, beige, whites and a pop of orange here and there, using glass tiles. Thank you so much for your help!

I agree with Wisconsin Woodworks, those yellows or greens would look great with your decor choices. You've done a terrific job so far! I also like the idea of sticking with horizontal tiles for your backsplash. Do you have any images of the juice bar area, so we could get a better idea of what you're working with?

Here are some interesting options for backsplash tile, just from searching through Houzz. There are so many options out there, so it'd be great to narrow down what you'd like for the backsplash tile. I definitely try to find a few that matched the colors you mentioned. Hope you like them!

Silver and Chocolate Brick Mixed Aluminum Mosaic Tile, Sheet
10 Square Feet - Sunset Beach Hand Painted Glass Mosaic Subway Tile
10 Square Feet - Forest Blanket Hand Painted Glass Mosaic Subway Tile
Bliss Cabernet Random Strip Mosaic Tiles, Mixed, 10 Square Feet
Desert 1" x 4" Brown 1" x 4" Frosted Glass
Sienna Oval Brown Linea Onde Collection Glossy Glass

I tried to find some rusty brown colors. And I also found this funky one that has oranges and greens, but it could go well with what you have, especially with mustard yellow walls.
Chestnut 1" x 6" Brown Brick Victorian Glossy and Iridescent Glass

It's a little more on the contemporary side, but I didn't know which direction you were leaning.

Going with the last one you gave me, what color of granite would I use on juice bar top?

Try Copper Canyon granite if you are wanting to blend coloring. I will recommend not using a solid color like Black Galaxy or Absolute Black... You will see every water ring from any drink left on top.

If you really like the iridescent backsplash tile, I would recommend a countertop that either blends with the colors well like Cinar Interiors suggested, or at least doesn't detract from it much.

I would suggest staying in one of three color families for the countertops: either a rusty cooper color to blend with the backsplash, a chocolately brown to echo the seats, or a creamy monochromatic counter similar in shade to your floor tile. You'll have a better idea of the big picture and which would fit your space best, but here are some countertop ideas. I'd definitely suggest sticking to one of the colors you already have in your scheme, rather than trying to introduce a new element.

I'm also attaching a collage of your other decor elements to match against.

Copper canyon image: http://www.stonecontact.com/products-234937/copper-canyon-granite-slabs - Silestone's "Sante Fe Brown" might be another good reddish-brown option.

Some brown choices:
Silestone's "Grey Amazon" - http://www.silestoneusa.com/colors/color/grey-amazon/
Marron Chohiba

Some White / Cream options:
Exotic White Granite Quartzite Slabs from Italy 1
Exotic White Granite Quartzite Slabs from Italy 2
Bianco Quartzite Slab

Hopefully that helps!

Thank you so much! I'm not sure if I'm going to go with those colors for the back splash but I have been searching for the creamy granite colors for a week now! Those you sent are exactly what I have been looking for! Big help!!! They are building the juice bar and are needing me to make a choice on the granite.

Hoping they will give me time for the back splash! Love another choice you gave me too for that so trying to figure it out. But for sure I'm going to go with the creamy colors you have given me!

So I guess that would change the colors for the back splash.

The creamy granite top will look great with your decor.
If you love that style of granite, it's definitely much easier to change the backsplash to match, rather than the other way around. Good luck making choices! It's an exciting part of the process. Let us know if there's anything else we can help with.

Any ideas on what color grout to use with tile shown in picture I first posted? Should I blend or not....... Also...I have attached floor tile for bathrooms and wall tile. Trying to pick grout colors for those as well!

If you're going for contemporary, I would suggest choosing grout colors that will blend with your tile for a more seamless effect. The less your grout shows, the more contemporary the design will lean. Contrasting grout is typically more of a traditional look.

Hope that info helps! Love the bathroom tile you posted. Great earthy choices with a very natural feel to them.
