Did I make a mistake with my quartzite counter & talavera backsplash?

I have a Spanish style house so I decided to use talavera tile as an accent in my kitchen backsplash. I have installed Yosemite Falls quartzite counters which I love. I aslo like the tile but am not sure if they look OK together. There is only one wall that has a backsplash. The doors in the kitchen are not in yet but the doors on either side of the arched window will be glass and the rest wil be white (Benjamin Moore distant grey). I have a large island that has the same quartszite counter but it is walnut (natural dark color). Here are two pictures of the tile with the quartzite. The walls are not painted yet either but will be an off white. I like the look but a few people have told me that they do not go together. I would like to hear your opinions.
