- Derek 05:55PM, Nov 18 2011 The Butterfly granite is a wonderful choice for your set-up. Some other options that compliment the fieldstone in your design nicely are Pocono Green, Tropical Brown, and Tan Brown. Let me know what you think.
  • Michele Kramer 04:14PM, Nov 16 2011 We are building a log home with kraftmaid toffee rustic birch cabinets. There will be a corner oven/microwave that will be faced with fieldstone. The island will also be faced with fieldstone. We are going to use some variation of slate tile flooring. I like this granite, however wondering if you have any suggestions.

    09:45PM, Oct 20 2011 Noce travertine in a diamond pattern would also work very well in your space and add visual interest to the backsplash. Consider adding some decorative glass accent tiles to finish off the look. Let us know what you think!

    08:24PM, Oct 20 2011 For the floor tile, my suggestions are to take a look at Daltile Dal-Gres line "Beige" and Fidenza line "Bianco". As for backsplash, a 2" x 2" Walnut Fontane tumbled mosaic would compliment your design nicely. I've attached an image for your reference. Let me know what you think.
  • Sue 03:51PM, Oct 20 2011 Hi, I am presently renovating my kitchen. I have medium oak cupboards. I have painted walls with BM Copley Gray. My new counter is Verde Butterfly. Don't know what color to choose for floor tile or backsplash. Help!

    05:14PM, Sep 27 2011 The Butterfly granite looks warmer against a cherry or golden colored cabinet. However, I feel that the combination you're considering is also acceptable. I recommend to take a cabinet door sample and put it against a slab of this stone and see how you enjoy the harmony of these two elements.
  • Rick 05:54AM, Sep 24 2011 Hello, I am buying a new townhouse and my wife and I must choose the colors we are going to use for the floor, cabinets and countertops. So far we have chosen light maple wood flooring and dark java brown cabinets. We really like the verde butterfly countertop, however I am worried it might not work with the java brown cabinets. I cannot find any examples online of verde butterfly on dark cabinets that do not have cherry coloring. Is there a reason for this? Could they work together?

    08:20PM, Sep 14 2011 Are you looking for island cabinet color suggestion? If so, I think it should be darker. A red mahogany cabinet color would retain the traditional, warm log home feel. As for granite options, my suggestions are Butterfly, Tan Brown, and Tropical Brown. The backsplash should be a tumbled natural stone. For example, 2" x 4" Jerusalem Gold beveled marble would be ideal. I've attached an image for your reference. Good luck!
  • GP 08:00PM, Sep 13 2011 I am remodeling my kitchen but can only replace some of the cabinets.  The perimeter cabinets will remain medium oak and the island plus part of top cabinets will be changed out.  I have a log home and have put down green ceramic tiles on the floor.  What do you suggest for island color and granite countertop along with backsplash?

    04:39PM, Jul 8 2011 Hi Pamela. I'm glad you've successfully picked the New Venetian Gold, it's a solid and warm choice. As for wall color, take a look at Benjamin Moore "Muslin" and "Malton".
  • Pamela 02:44AM, Jul 6 2011 We ended up choosing New Venetian Gold for our new kitchen.  Now we are having lots of trouble picking a paint color to match that will also make the creamy cabinets with light brown glaze "pop".  Any suggestions?
  • RoKing 01:03PM, Apr 4 2011 I have looked at the Tropical Brown and really like it. i was thinking I could put that on the antique white cabinets and wanted contrast for the dark brown island. What do you suggest? and also for back splash? Thank you!

  • Bob 08:01AM, Nov 28 2009 The floors are off white tile; the cabinets will; probably be very light maple. It's a small kitchen, but well-lit, and lake views in Florida and are leaning towards a darkish counter. Would a strong pattern be overwhelming? Would this be too dark.

  • Kathy 08:24PM, Nov 24 2008 Thank you. I went out looking again today and found a granite named Golden Sun. Lots of gray, creamy white, rust,warm tan,copper, etc, with movement like Creama Bourdeau. Does that sound better? Galaxy scares me--contrast and upkeep!
  • Marmi di Carrara 09:46AM, Nov 24 2008 Lisa:
  • Kathy 11:45PM, Nov 22 2008 red oak floors stained lt-med nutmeg, white cabinets, stainless appliances. There is gold, copper, dark brown nearby & large NE windows. How about Galaxy with a copper backsplash or V. Butterfly with a matching BSp? Other suggestions? The white has been difficult, since stones in granites are often cream or gray,etc.
  • Jean 07:46PM, Nov 5 2008 cabinets are pickled oak w/pinkish tones, floor is multicolored w/teal&grey plus others, backsplash is white; appliances stainless.....will butterfy go with this combo or have I fallen in love with the wrong color granite?
