Entry Flooring

I'm trying to decide a colour combo and pattern for my entry way flooring. The space is small, only 5.5' X 7'. I have a stained black door, black iron railing, white and black chandelier and the closet door will be white and the wall colour something light. The stairs will be stained walnut on the top and the risers painted white. Right now I have samples of a light travertine but think anything light and creamy is not the best. I don't want something too light that constantly looks dirty. So now I'm trying to decide btwn either...

- a honed slate, like Black Pearl below, and a border of two rows of 1"x1" (marble maybe???) mosiacs in a white set about 6" in from the edge.

- a honed slate again, and a honds tooth design out of a light thin stone right in front of the front door, in the shape of a door matt.
