Hi Kathnwes and thank you for your inquiry, the ceiling color is Brushed Aluminum by Benjamin Moore. As far as suggesting a granite to work with the stone your best bet is to take a sample of the stacked stone with you and look at it with various granite options: you can then choose to bring out one of the main tones. You may also consider a quartz option, which is a quieter look to allow the stacked stone to be the feature.

This is great information, thank you so much for taking the time to post. I have large format tile in my own house from a company called Porcelanosa (ceramic tiles, mfr. in Spain). See photo below. I think these guys are 27x16. They are laid over a plywood subfloor which is supported by p.t. sleepers on a new slab foundation The sleepers have radiant heat tubing running in between. Very minimal grout joints and no cupping issues that I can see, but perhaps that is due to the fact that my structural floor is very stable.

I will keep your info in mind...large format is becoming all the rage and it's good to know the potential pitfalls. Thank you again!
