I have an antique white kitchen with white appliances,  my flooring is a medium brown 12x12 tile and counter tops are dark brown granite.  I do not like stainless appliances.  I am thinking of putting a white subway tile backsplash to coordiate with the appliances-to make things look more intentional.  what do you think?  my kitchen is small and open to family room - wall colour is similar to cabinets and there is oak railings and fire place in view.  the style is more traditional/country  help???

Hi Tammy,
Your kitchen sounds very similar to mine.  If you think the subway tile would go with the brown granite go for it - it wouldn't be my first choice especially in a traditional/country kitchen.  My first thought was something like a mosaic that includes hints of the brown countertop or a staggered strips of tile that includes some brown glass tile.  I've seen this done in some English magazines.
