Paint color for stone kitchen backsplash

Jill T
last month

Hey y’all! I’m refreshing a newly purchased home with some paint. The old owners had an antiquing glaze over their kitchen trim, which played nicely with their darker choices for backsplash and countertop.

However, our new Kitchen wall color is Behr Brook Green, with Behr Swiss Coffee Trim and cabinets, and I’m finding the transition from the new colors to the old backsplash jarring. Eventually we’ll likely replace the backsplash, but in the meantime I’d like to try my hand at painting it. Wondering if I should try to pull a more slate color from the countertop (see pic), or just go with Swiss Coffee to match the cabinets (which would then maybe make the countertop the eyesore?).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
