I do not think the Siena Bordeaux is too busy for your design, rather the deep rustic veins will make the granite countertop a focal point of your kitchen. Go for it!

    I saw siena bordeaux at a home show this weekend and loved it.  I have nnatural oak cabinets and natural oak wood floors...the "ship deck" look with dark pegs in the flooring.  The cabinets and flooring are in perfect shape.  Would this granite be too busy?

    Since the Siena Bordeaux has a rich pattern with deep, rustic veining throughout the slab, I'd use a softer and calmer backsplash tile. My recommendations for you to check out are Bursa Beige marble in a hexagon pattern, Bianco Glass tile in a brick pattern, or a Botticino marble Split-Faced mosaic. Let me know your thoughts on these as I've attached pictures for your reference.

    my husband and i are presently remodeling our kitchen.  black distressed cabinets with sienna bordeaux  countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a tile floor that has swirls of brown, black, beige-y tones. what do you suggest for backsplash?

    06:06PM, Dec 23 2011 I feel you can pick up the tones in the Siena Bordeaux and spice up the design with a tile such as 2" x 2" Melograno Marble Mosaic. I've attached an image for your reference. If you'd like something calmer and softer, then you can use a Tumbled Botticino Fiorito marble tile. Hope this helps.

    08:08PM, Dec 20 2011 Have you considered using 2 x 2 tumbled Crema Marfil marble tile with accents? A beautiful combination like Ballet France would also be a stunning choice for your space. For walls, I would keep them light and neutral like Benjamin Moore’s “Ivory Tusk” or “Lighthouse Landing”.
  • Veness 06:17PM, Dec 20 2011 Need advise on backsplash (tile color, size & shape)  for kitchen with sienna bordeaux countertops, mahogany stained cabinets and white tiled floors (18x18).  I have flexibility on paint color, too, if you have suggestions on what to consider.

    06:38PM, Jul 21 2011 A Crema Marfil tumbled marble tile would be a perfect addition to the space.

    03:01PM, Jul 21 2011 The Siena Bordeaux is a rich stone that will be the center piece of your bathroom and attract the eyes to the counter, therefore the tile should be soft and calm. A white subway tile or a light marble tile is very appropriate for this set-up.
  • JM 10:34PM, Jul 20 2011 Pls disregard previous post.  What I meant to say was I am thinking about using siena bordeaux in a main bath with white vanity and dark trim.  would that work and if so what color tile would you recommend? thx.

    01:18PM, Jun 17 2011 Absolutely! You're on the right track, the Siena Bordeaux has warm golden veining that will compliment the aspects of your design nicely. It also has clusters of a burgundy and raspberry color that will pick-up your wall paper and island tones.

    I think the Siena Bordeaux would look lovely in your setup. The warm tones would play off of each other very well and the wine red in the stone would tie in the raspberry wall paper in the breakfast nook. The Siena Bordeaux is definitely a great choice for your kitchen. The pattern is very interesting and rich, you will enjoy this stone for years to come.
  • Ellenlane 03:03AM, Jun 17 2011 Would siena bordeaux work in a kitchen with toffee colored cabinets, gold/tan walls and wall paper, mottled brown floor tiles? We also have a raspberry colored wall paper in the breakfast nook just under the chair rail and are planning to paint the center island the same color.
