Looking at this is making me think we should go with something lighter like this for the granite. Is the black and tan too dark?
This is a darker countertop with the maple cabinets. I'm thinking maybe dark isn't the way to go?
The scalloped backsplash is kind of funky and retro and modern all at the same time. Do NOT like it with the tile countertop. But what about 2 neutral/light colors mixed for the backsplash with granite countertops? Could be different and a little cool. Maybe even a third color for an accent thrown in every so often (slate? smoke?)
This is roughly our cabinet color with a VERY dark countertop. With the backsplash light it looks good. As long as we do the walls and tile light enough a dark granite should be OK.
