- Derek 04:00PM, Feb 9 2012 The Giallo Ornamental and Santa Cecilia are classic and timeless choices, full of elegance and warmth to compliment your design kitchen. However, they're safe choices, and you can add New Venetian Gold, as well as Giallo Napoleone to that. Any one of those four would be a solid and appropriate countertop. If you'd like more movement to make the granite a focal point of your kitchen, I recommend to also take a look at Sanguine C, Shalimar Gold, New Colonial Dream, and Colonial Cream. Hope this helps!

    03:39PM, Feb 9 2012 Are there any colors that have caught your attention so far? My recommendations are choices such as Peregrine C, Solarius, Typhoon Gold, and Sanguine C. Let me know your thoughts on these!

    03:34PM, Feb 9 2012 I'd use a very light cabinet color with a hint of creme warmth such as the buttercream shade for an excellent contrast. Also a granite such as Imperial Coffee would look very nice with this set-up. Hope this helps!

    08:28PM, Feb 8 2012 Fire and Ice backsplash tile is quite popular with dark, elegant stones such as Black Galaxy. I've attached pictures to illustrate what I mean. Hope this helps!

    01:39PM, Feb 3 2012 I’m leaning towards the Sienna Bordeaux as well as the Typhoon Bordeaux. Both stones would compliment your space magnificently. For backsplash, I would recommend a simple white subway tile backsplash or SomerTile Quarry White Gloss Porcelain mosaic tile to keep the focus on the glamorous granite without overpowering the design. Let me know what you think!

    08:12PM, Feb 1 2012 We have Kosmus available if you'd like to take a look, it's ID 976. It's an interesting and rich choice, for other suggestions that will make the island a focal point in your kitchen design, take a look at Brown Alpine, Hurricane, and Amazon Tiger. Hope this helps!
  • Pcherian 01:51AM, Jan 30 2012 We are renovating our kitchen. We plan to have white-beige floor tiles and our cabinets are cherry dark tan (butter nut)in the periphery and a dark brown(sable) on the island. WE PLAN TO HAVE JUPARANA BORDEAUX FOR THE COUNTERTOPS IN THE PERIPHERY and are looking for a very striking unique granite for the island. will something like a Cosmo (Kosmos) be too busy ? ( we also hear it may not be sturdy in certain areas of the slab) Any ideas will be greatly welcome. Pam and Zac

    06:21PM, Oct 4 2011 I'm not familiar with what Fashion Bordeaux looks like. The Bordeaux family of stone has dozens of variations. I believe it's similar to Crema Bordeaux, if so, then it's a stunning choice and you should totally go for it!
  • Bjbjsfour 03:32PM, Oct 3 2011 Thank you.  What do you think of Fashion Bordeaux.  I loved the Sienna Bordeaux but thought it was too white for the creamy white cabinets.
  • Marmidicarrara.com
    - Derek
    06:41PM, Sep 27 2011 The Siena Bordeaux, as well as Typhoon Bordeaux, would compliment your set-up nicely and I recommend either one to be used for your kitchen. For backsplash, my suggestion is a tumbled Botticino marble split-faced mosaic. I've attached an image for your reference. Good luck!
  • Marmidicarrara.com
    - Kinga
    11:57AM, Sep 27 2011 I am not sure what the Fashion Bordeaux looks like but the Siena Bordeaux would be a wonderful choice for your space. A tumbled marble backsplash like a Crema Marfil with accent tiles would be a sold choice for your setup. Let me know what you think!

    11:26AM, Sep 27 2011 Unfortunately, the Stroudsburg, PA yard do not carry the Bordeaux but they do carry the Crema Bordeaux and Ibere Crema Bordeaux. Each location has hundreds of colors to choose from so it’s best you visit the yard in person and pick up a few samples to bring home.
  • Bjsfour 02:16PM, Sep 26 2011 I am remodeling my kitchen.  The cabinets will be a creamy white with a glazing to match a cherry island.  I am thinking of going with either Fashion Bordeaux or Sienna Bordeaux.  Which will work better?  Can you also recommend a color and type of backsplash.

    Thanks
  • Brad Eisenhower 09:39PM, Sep 24 2011 Do you have this at your Stroudsburg store?  If not, can you get it in?  Also, what price category does it fall into?

    09:13PM, Sep 14 2011 Indeed it's a wonderful match and your choice does pick up the tones in the Crema Bordeaux nicely. Adding a softer accent border with a neutral marble tile such as my suggestion of Crema Marfil (Botticino is another option, as well as Statuary marble, Durango, Baja Cream travertine ect) is an excellent idea. You're on the RIGHT track!
  • Thank you! 04:22PM, Sep 14 2011 Thanks so much Derek!  We love the granite!!  Here's a photo of the mosaic.  However, I like your suggestion in going with something more neutral. We thought the mosaic might be nice as the stone that is in it matches the crema perfectly. And, although it's a bit altered due to viewing on the monitor, but the lighter accent pieces of glass match our paint color.  What do you think about adding some sort of "accent" border within the 2x4?

    09:44PM, Sep 13 2011 I don't see an example of the glass & stone mosaic tile that you're considering in this post, there are two pictures attached. However, the Crema Bordeaux that you've installed is just gorgeous, I just have to compliment you on this stone. How do you feel about a light, creamy, simple, soft, and neutral tumbled marble tile? The countertop stone is busy so this is the route to go in regard to backsplash tile. For example, a 2" x 4" cut and polished Crema Marfil mosaic.
  • Marmidicarrara.com
    - Derek
    07:36PM, Sep 13 2011 My recommendation for your design is a soft and simple backsplash tile mix such as a SomerTile Reflections subway & ming glass mosaic. I've attached a picture for you to see. Best of luck!
  • Gucci03 12:20AM, Sep 10 2011 Hi, I have typhoon bordeau countertops. Cherry Sangria cabinets and a gray slate floor. I need desperate help with the backsplash. I need to go with something very simple because the countertop is busy and the floor has highlights in it that makes it busy. Thanks
  • Marmidicarrara.com
    - Derek
    06:29PM, Aug 31 2011 The backsplash should be calmer and softer as the Crema Bordeaux is a rich pattern. My recommendation is a Baja Cream polished marble mosaic. Let me know what you think!
  • Raj 02:30AM, Aug 25 2011 We have maple cabinets and bamboo floor. We are planning to go with creme bordeaux.Which tiles do you recommend for backspash?
  • Marmidicarrara.com
    - Derek
    04:48PM, Aug 17 2011 That travertine pattern seems a bit too busy for my taste when used with a rich color such as Crema Bordeaux, perhaps a travertine tile such as a 2x2 sized Walnut Fontane Tumbled Mosaic would be a more appropriate choice. I've attached a picture for your reference. Let me know what you think!
  • Marmidicarrara.com
    - Kinga
    09:54PM, Aug 15 2011 I feel the travertine would work well if you used the large tile paired with the medium subway style. If you use the large tile on the bottom and the subway style on the top, it won’t feel busy and the colors will tie the space together very well.
  • Thank you! 04:30PM, Aug 15 2011 We have installed crema bordeaux countertops in our kitchen.  We have light (white oak?) cabinets and a neutral paint color.  We are really having trouble with the backsplash material!  Didn't use the granite as it was 3 cm thick and didn't want to pay the $$$ to cut and polish it (and we thought 3cm was too thick).  Do you recommend a glossy finish on the backsplash with granite, or matte?  What about travertine?  I see it recommended by some folks here, but is it very practical re: cleaning?  We are not going all the way up the wall - just 5".  We thought about the travertine in the picture attached, but think it may be too busy with all the grout lines.  Any suggestions would be appreciated!

    01:42PM, Aug 11 2011 The Crema Bordeaux you are considering is definitely a great choice for your space. Derek’s backsplash suggestion would finish off the design wonderfully as would a tumbled travertine. Let us know what you think!

    02:48PM, Aug 9 2011 The Bordeaux done as a full backsplash looks gorgeous and you can actually see an example of this in our 'Work Examples' box. I've also attached an image for your reference. The continuous flow and pattern fits a kitchen setting very well, and your dark cabinets will be an elegant compliment. Another recommendation, also from the Bordeaux family of stones, is Ibere Crema Bordeaux. Let me know what you think!
  • Marmidicarrara.com
    - Derek
    01:28PM, Aug 9 2011 Great choice! This color is vibrant and will breathe strong life into your design. Make sure to look at the slabs in-person and pick exactly the one you like. My other suggestions would be Four Seasons, Ibere Crema Bordeaux, and Golden Rock. The backsplash should be softer and calmer, our 'Oyster mix Flamed' tumbled travertine tile is a perfect solution.
  • Marmidicarrara.com
    - Derek
    01:22PM, Aug 9 2011 The Crema Bordeaux is one of my favorite stones and the colorful movement will make this granite a center piece of your kitchen design. I also highly recommend the Crema Bordeaux, but you must look at the slabs in-person and pick the actual slab that will be used for the project, as they can differ quite considerably between deliveries.
  • Marmidicarrara.com

    12:43PM, Aug 9 2011 I like the Crema Bordeaux for your setup because the stone has a rich feel with vibrant veins and great colors that will tie your space together.  My vote is for the Crema Bordeaux!
  • siri 04:03PM, Aug 7 2011 Hi, We are redoing our kitchen.
    We selected Shenandoah Maple with Auburn glaze(dark) cabinets . Our floor will be polished porcelin in light beige color. Our appliances are stainless steel.

    I like Bordeaux granite family. I  am also thinking of backsplash with same granite. I
    am wondering which  Bordeaux / similar will  suit  our kitchen specially we are doing whole kitchen with peninsula and Bar area. I like darker  colors ... Please suggest me which granite will suit our kitchen.
    Thank you
  • Rjrsky 02:44PM, Aug 7 2011 Our cherry cabinets are stained to a medium brown.  Our floor will be a natural color cherry.  I am attracted to the bordeaux #632.  Do you think that choice is sound?  And, are there other granites you suggest we look at before making a final decision?  Also, kindly offer a backsplash suggestion.
  • Jack 12:46AM, Aug 7 2011
    Hello, we are redoing our kitchen. The kitchen is not small but it is considered a galley kitchen  The cabinets that we selected (American Woodmark - Maple Cognac) are medium in darkness and has a reddish tone them. The floor will be porcelin tile that is on the lighter side. White based with various tones to it (baige). For the granite, we were thinking either the creama bordeaux or the tan brown. What do you think?

    Thanks

Do you think that this will look too busy? I thought the cream colored paint would bring out the tan color in the granite so that the burgandy won't look so bold. What do you think about the whole thing?.

We are planning for cherry cabinets with med/dark stain. We don't like the contrasting look of really light granite on a cherry cabinet and don't like the very dark look with the blacks in granite. We would like a medium shade of granite. We are thinking bordeaux but is it too much color? Is it going to look "pink"? We will have stainless appliances and sinks. Is this a color that we will get tired off? Are we making a mistake not going with something more neutral that would be easier to decorate around?
