We really like the look of subway tile so we are pretty sure we are going to go with that. Now it's finding the right color. With our cream cabinets, white tile won't look good. The countertops have black, gray, cream, tan, purple all swirled in and the hardwoods are dark. I'm 99% sure we are doing light gray in the kitchen for paint (Benjamin Moore - Wickham Gray).

Based on these 3, we liked the light gray the best (the one on the far right). The dark gray could work, but I'm worried it will be too dark for the room. The tan/beige is too warm/yellow and I think is too similar to the granite and the countertops.
My only concern is the amount of gray that we are using - the couch and the fireplace will be gray. And if we do the walls gray... I don't want it to feel cold. So we'll just have to make sure we use some warm accents as well.
What are you doing for backsplash?
