We do sell a small selection of backsplash tiles. The Oyster Mix Flamed would also work great in your situation:

 As for my original suggestions, they are from various websites from tile stores I found online.

    Research your local tile suppliers and call around to find out what kinds of tile they carry. You can even email some tile suppliers with photos of what you are looking for and they can tell you if they carry it. Unfortunately, we do not have a website that shows tile patterns. However, I do encourage you to use your creative side (everyone has it!) and draw out some ideas you may have. Ask for feedback from friends, family and even professionals. Feedback can really help you create the perfect pattern, giving your kitchen the ultimate custom look and feel. I will attach some ideas I have played around with so hopefully this will inspire you to come up with better ideas for your dream space. If you do come up with something, we would love to see it. Hope this helps!

    Where can you buy the stone tile?  And do you have a web site for patterns?  Thanks for all you help.

    I recommend a tumbled natural stone tile such as a Durango 2" x 2" mosaic or Crema Marfil marble. I've attached photos for your reference. Good luck!

    Thanks Derek!  Now, what do suggest for the back splash?

    You can always go stainless steel for a timeless and classic feel (that rhymes!) However, for an elegant contrast, oil rubber bronze faucet and a composite black granite sink would look very beautiful. Good luck!

    What color faucet and sink will go best with the bordeaux river granite?

    11:26AM, Sep 6 2011 Have you considered using a more consistent stone like Giallo Napoleone or Santa Cecilia?

    05:15PM, Sep 1 2011 That is a beautiful but rather busy floor tile. The Yellow River is a solid choice, just make sure to pick a slab with the least movement. The softest and calmest slab will be ideal in this situation, other than that, everything will compliment each other nicely. Good luck!
  • Kerri 02:15PM, Aug 30 2011 I've attached a picture of my flooring along with the color of our walls. We have off-white cabinets. We are really leaning towards the yellow river. Do you think this will be a good fit? Keep in mind that we also have dark chestnut brown laminate wood flooring and the granite is going to be in the kitchen that is also open to the living room and dining room, with no dividing walls separating the 3 rooms.

    09:22PM, Aug 1 2011 Kathy, since you have a specific cabinet color, it would be very helpful if you can take a picture of the cabinet and upload it for your reference before we give out suggestions. Let us know if this is possible. Thanks!

    03:48PM, Aug 1 2011 I was trying to find a photo of your cabinets online but; unfortunately, I was unsuccessful. Would you be able to attach a photo for our review? Without knowing exactly what your cabinets look like, we won’t be able to provide you with advice.
  • Kathykat98 04:40PM, Jul 31 2011 My cabinets are maple with a chestnut frost finish and am finding they don't go well with alot, particularly the marrons bring out pink. lt has a cowboy western look to it and leaning towards cream and tan combo, but not too speckley. Your thoughts?

    02:08PM, Jul 12 2011 Kinga explained the options perfectly. If the appliances are dark, go with the anthracite sink color. If they're light, the boscotti sink will be a better choice. Let us know what you choose!

    03:42PM, Jul 11 2011 I feel the silgranit anthracite sink would be an appropriate choice for your setup if your appliances are stainless steel or black. However, if your appliances are in the biscotti color family, you may want to consider the biscotti colored sink instead. Hope this helps!
  • lily 02:40PM, Jul 11 2011 Thanks for the suggestion. I agree! Any ideas on a sink that would work with yellow river? We are leaning toward a silgranite anthracite or biscotti color. I am so torn between the two colors. Any suggestions?

    02:02PM, Jun 15 2011 Going with the warm Yellow River across the board is a good choice. A tumbled Botticino marble tile for the backsplash would look wonderful.
  • lily 02:42AM, Jun 15 2011 Hi and thanks. We've actually decided to just do yellow river everywhere. Seems like it is a no brainer. Any ideas on a backsplash? Thank you.
  • Marmi di Carrara 12:53PM, Jun 6 2011 Take a look at Caesarstone line colors of "Carmel" and "Chocolate". These choices would compliment the Yellow River quite nicely.
  • Lily 09:20PM, Jun 3 2011 Hi - I just installed yellow river on my island. Looks gorgeous with my white cabinets and tan tile floor and tan walls. I would like to put quartz on the perimeter of my kitchen. Can you recommend a color that would blend with yellow river?
  • Laura 07:21PM, Mar 6 2011 OH! And we're thinking around a medium-lower price range.. THANKS!
  • Laura 07:20PM, Mar 6 2011 We are currently refinishing our cabinets with red mahogany stain and currently have tan walls, cream tile floors and white appliances... Any suggestions??
  • Mary 11:03PM, Feb 17 2011 Hi, I love the Yellow River, do you think it would go with washed oak cabinets? Is Yellow River on the higher end with price like some of the Bordeaux's?
  • Nikki 11:32PM, Jan 23 2011 Hi- I love yellow river but was wondering if you can recommend a stone that is brighter and would have more gold colors in it. Thanks
  • Kate 11:19AM, Oct 27 2010 Thanks to you "moderator" - I love the suggestions you made, however these choices are amongst the most expensive, I would be grateful if you could give me some ideas at the low-mid price range please. Thanks
  • Kate Parkinson-Gee 11:03PM, Oct 25 2010 i HAVE A SMALL KITCHEN, DRAMATIC BLACK AND WHITE TILE FLOOR, OFF WHITE CABINETS, SMALL WINDOW BUT SLIDERS IN THE DINER SECTION, REASONABLE AMOUNT OF NATURAL LIGHT, DON'T WANT THE KITCHEN TO LOOK "OVERDONE" OR THAT WE ARE TOO MATCHY, WALLS ARE A NEUTRAL MILKY COFFEE COLOR, I HAVE A VINTAGE FEEL THROUGH MY KITCHEN, THINK BLACK TYPES WOULD BE TOO HEAVY BUT NEED SOME HELP WITH INSPIRATION PLEASE! WOULD CONSIDER REPAINTING THE WALLS!!
  • jean 12:30PM, Oct 15 2010 i have white cabinets, creamy w/tan tile on the floor, ss appliances, and a sauteed mushroom (med warm brown ) color on my walls. I love the movement in this especially since I have an open-type bar counter. Would this look ok with my colors?
  • Tonja 01:48PM, Oct 14 2010 I have picked this of Santa Ceclia dark to go with our cherry vanity. My tile is on the darker side of brown but with tumbled marble and glass tile decorative accents. My shower will be cultured marble in a cream color with the same tumble marble and glass accents. My wall colors are a brown mocha color. Wondering which would go better, yellow river or santa ceclia dark?
  • Marmi di Carrara 09:41AM, May 12 2010 tammy: I'm leaning towards the Alexander Black.
  • tammy 06:09PM, May 11 2010 would this go with hickory cabinets (yellow river)or is it too busy? it seems like it would bring out the color of stainless steel too. my floor is gray and beige and gray walls. would just plain black be a richer classy look like alexander black?
  • Vic 04:54PM, May 2 2010 How would this look with white cabinets? I have narrowed down to this and napoleon..help
  • Tommy 05:58PM, Jul 31 2009 I keep finding different granites that I like. How would this go with Maple cabinets ina coffee or palimino color with SS appliances?
  • ruby 11:21PM, Mar 3 2009 this is really beautiful granite, i think that the colors go really well together and if i had the money i would definetly spend it on this, and i would definetly not be wasting my money
