I'd like to start off by saying congratulations on an informed decision for your countertop choice! The Coffee Brown is a rich and elegant shade in a transitional style. It should be dark enough to allow an adequate level of contrast so go for it! In regard to the backsplash dilemma, my recommendations are options such as Oyster Mix Flamed travertine for a natural, tumbled choice. For something more modern, take a look at Mirabelle Collection smoky brown glass tile in a brick pattern. Hope this helps!

    Thank you so much for your reply. I brought my maple door to the granite quarry and decided I like the contrast of the coffee brown granite. The colonial dream seemed to blend to much. My kitchen does not have a lot of natural light,but we are thinking of putting in a skylight. Do you have any recommendations for tile backsplash with my maple cabinets and coffee brown granite? Thank you so much for you time.

    The New Colonial Dream is a wonderful, warm choice with golden highlights to accentuate the countertops against the maple cabinets. Some other options for you ton consider would be the similar Colonial Cream as well as New Colonial Gold. You should not pick a dark stone if your kitchen is overall dark in lightning, as the counters should keep the space light and warm. Good luck!

    I have light/med maple cabinets,stainless and black appliances and hardwood floors that are a bit deeper than my cabinets. Although I know that a dark granite would look nice with my cabinets my kitchen is dark. How do you think New colonial dream would look with my cabinets? Thank you.

    02:09PM, Jan 5 2012 Since you wrote this question in a darker stones page (Imperial Coffee), I will assume you've been leaning toward a darker color. If you have a large kitchen space with plenty of natural light, then you can get away with using a darker shade in my opinion, if that's what you are attracted to. In contrast to Kinga's lighter suggestions, some darker colors that I recommend for you to look at are Tan Brown, Butterfly Antique, Golden Jade, Verde Sequoia, Baltic Brown, and Tropical Brown. Good luck!

    08:59PM, Jan 3 2012 I would recommend using a lighter stone to brighten up the space like Astoria, Atlantis and Gold Antique. Each of these stones would complement your Terracotta tiles without overwhelming the space. It is very important to bring samples home to compare against your cabinets and flooring to help you narrow down some choices. Stones may vary in person so having a sample of your floor at the granite yard will make your decision so much easier. Hope this helps!
