Can someone help me pick a backsplash?

This is the a sample of the granite counter in the kitchen. Appliances are stainless and floor is wood (on the darker side).

What color do you think would look nice for a backsplash? I love the look of glass tile but I'm a little lost with this...I'm open to all suggestions.

Please post pics if you have!

TIA! Chat Icon

I like the idea of tumbled marble but then some accent of glass tile since you really like it...like maybe a stripe of rectangular glass tile across the backsplash, or done in a design over the stove.

Love the granite!!! Maybe a natural stone backsplash? That is what we plan on doing in our kitchen.
