1/2 tile with mosaic. looks nice... dontcha think?
"A simple border of mosaic along the backsplash adds visual interest and ties the countertop material to the floor color (and makes it really easy to pick to a wall color). Here the tile is set right below a decorative cap tile.
Tip: Decorative cap tiles and pencil liners can be expensive — usually priced per piece. If you're on a budget, run a border of tile like shown, but rather than using a decorative cap, use a standard bullnose tile piece that is typically used to finish off the field tile. No one will notice you skipped the decorative cap; their eyes will go to the gorgeous mosaic"
