#nkhouse Thank you for your question about the backsplash grout. When I’m making grout decisions in a traditionally styled home, my goal is to make the grout disappear. If the tile is light colored, then I will match the grout to the lightest color in the tile; if the tile is dark, then I would match the grout to the darkest color on the tile.
In this case, the tile is a warm Cream Crackle ceramic from Ann Sacks Earthenware line. We could have used the Bright White grout color that we so often use with white or off-white tile, and it would have been “OK.” To make the installation just a little softer, however, we used a slightly warmer color grout, “Antique White” (Polyblend sanded grout #10).

Thank you for your question, and please forgive our delayed response. This is one of our favorite projects; we like it for it's simplicity and charm. The countertop in the middle of the kitchen is Colonial Cream granite, honed, with a simple 3/4" polished "tabletop" edge detail. We used absolute black granite on the perimeter cabinets, and Anne Sacks beveled 3 x 6 cream crackle tile on the backsplash.
