Walnut Kitchen Backsplash Help... Square, subway, calm, bold?

We're finally on the final leg of our first floor reno and I cannot decide on a kitchen backsplash. Having a hard time choosing a direction let alone an actual tile. Any thoughts on the existing samples or other suggestions?

Whole kitchen is walnut grain-matched fronts. Haven't decided on cabinet hardware. Only have this one wall of backsplash, there will be a walnut counter cabinet going up to the ceiling on the left hand side:

Counters are quartz, look white unless you're right over them:

Really love the Heath Ceramics half hex, but my budget doesn't:
