Thank you for your response Cynthia. I have since heard the exact same advice from other designers, so I appreciate that feedback. I also have black granite and we are about to have our medium-stain maple cabinets painted white. I have been searching for a backsplash tile that will marry those two things and also will not "fight" our floor tile, which has pinkish undertones (hate it, but can't afford to replace 700sq feet of tile right now). The colors in this backsplash initially appealed to me, but the style is not timeless, as you've pointed out. I have since found a polished marble called Silver Shadow in a 1x2 brick mosaic pattern, and I absolutely love how it works with the colors in my kitchen. I think it looks more classic, while still being modern and clean looking, and I can't wait for the cabinets to be done and the new tile to be installed.

That sounds like a wonderful plan. I'm glad you're on the right track and I hope you enjoy your beautiful kitchen for a long time.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Here we see how the zebra print can inspire design choices in a more abstract way. The tiled backsplash here is reminiscent of the zebra design but doesn't mimic it exactly. I like this choice for the modern home.

This backsplash is pretty contemporary but I like that it has a grayish with black and a taupe or something. Kind of brings in the little bit of tan in your floor tile
