    Absolutely! The warm, rustic, golden highlights and veins of the Giallo Mascarello is a nice complement against the espresso cabinets and even offers some contrast. Go for it.

    I really like the Giallo Mascarello ID 627 - Will this look good w/my expresso cabinets?

    Please take a look at my suggestions below! Those colors you've mentioned are also all just gorgeous. You're on the right track!

    Sorry for the late response. For the island piece to be a focal point of your kitchen design, I recommend granite colors such as Cloudy Yellow, Desert River, and Golden Dream. For the backsplash, a durable, inexpensive, calm, and neutral choice would be a ceramic subway tile. I have in-mind this style called Merola Cobble Poland subway tile. For a warmer and darker choice, take a look at glazed porcelain Portenza Terra di Siena mosaic tile. I've attached a photo for your reference. A decorative tile mural behind the stove is an excellent idea as well. Go for it!

    Fogto to mention that I have been loooking at Golden Crystal, Giallo Mascarello, Golden Wave, Lapidus and Juparana St. Cecilia.  Lots of choices not sure which one to pick!

    Hi Derek,
    I am about to pick out granite for my center island.  It is a big island and the wood has been stained a dark walnut color. The rest of our cabinets are hickory that have a lot of character with dark chocoloate strains running through them.  I am planning on putting a dark brown counter top on the hickory cabinets and am unsure of what the island counter should be.  I want it to be a statement piece as it will be the first thing people see when they walk in. I don't want it too dark as the island is already dark but would like movement in it and golden tones.  I also don't want it too light as I don't like white in  a kitchen so don't want it to look white.  Definitely want the gold to shine through.  Also need inexpensive idea for the backsplash.  Oh the faucets and ceiling fan are a rubbed oil bronze color and appliances stainless steel.  Also would like to finish with a decorative hood in tumbled stone for that tuscan feel and also the back of our woodstove?  What do you think?

  • Sheltonsandie 10:19PM, Dec 7 2011 thank U.
  • - Derek 08:59PM, Nov 30 2011 It really depends on if the Giallo Capella clashes with your floor tile. From your description, it does not sound like the floor tile is overfly busy. I recommend to get a sample of the Capella and bring it home with you to see how it looks like in your kitchen next o the floor. As for backsplash, to softer the style I would use a neutral and timeless tile such as a tumbled Botticino marble. Good luck!
  • Sshelton 02:25PM, Nov 26 2011 I am looking a Giallo Capella Granite for the whole kitchen with white cabinets. I also have white tile with light grey swirls. Do you think this will be to busy? I do not have a center island. If Giallo Capella is not to busy for my kitchen what type of back splash would I install?
  • - Kinga 09:03PM, Oct 20 2011 Also check out the Astoria. I feel the soft veins give the stone enough of interest without overpowering the rest of the space.
  • - Derek 08:53PM, Oct 20 2011 Take a look at colors such as Madura Gold, Verde Sequoia, and Sun Flower. These choices are a little less busy.
  • Lj117 03:55PM, Oct 20 2011 Thank you Dereck-We thought that might be the case!  Any recomendations for granite for both backsplace and countertop??
  • - Derek 02:52PM, Oct 20 2011 It's quite a busy stone and I'm just afraid that it may be a bit too much to be used as a full backsplash as well as countertop material. But if you enjoy a bold, wild, and rich pattern then you may be able to pull it off. The tile also has some movement in it, so it would be quite a busy design overall. How about using a tumbled Noce travertine backsplash instead of the Mascarello there? Just some food for thought. Hope this helps.
  • Lj117 01:11PM, Oct 20 2011 Hello-We are remodeling our kitchen using off-white cabinets with a cherry chocolate glazed island. The appliances will be stainless steel.  The floor is a porcelian tile-Ragno Calabria "Bianco" (click on photo of Bi)  We really like the Mascarelo and would use it as a countertop as well as the  backsplash. Do you think this is a good combination?
  • - Derek 06:08PM, Sep 27 2011 The Giallo Mascarello is a very rich stone with golden highlights throughout each slab. It's surely to bring the kitchen to life and add critical resale value. Another option I recommend is Ouro Fantastico.
  • David and Jeanie Jones 02:44PM, Sep 24 2011 My husband and I are wanting to update our laminate counters.  We have honey colored cabinets w/a raised front.  We have stainless and black appliances and light hard-wood flooring.  It is a butler kitchen - by that I mean a long narrow kitchen.  I wanted to pick a granite or marble that would lighten the area and bring in all tones that are presently being used.  Do you believe this color would enhance all and help add value for resale?
  • Daniel 07:29PM, Nov 13 2010 Hi - I am trying to decide on granite for my kitchen remodel. I have cherry cabinets stained "Autumn Blush" (redishbrown) with an island that will be used as our table and will seat six. Florring undecided but probably a beige color. I wanted to have different colors for the countertops vs. the island. What color combo would you suggest?
    • All Granite and Marble 02:15PM, Nov 15 2010 Daniel: For the perimeter granite, I recommend to look at Giallo Ornamental, Santa Cecilia, Colonial Gold. Something light and simple to offset the cherry colored wood. For the island, take a look at Crema Bordeaux. It is a rich color with plenty of movement to make the island the centerpiece of your design.
  • j winn 09:29AM, Sep 12 2010 I am redo-ing a kitschy southwester kitchen. The floor is mexican reddish tile, which I like (the house is stucco and very SW itself) Want to build the new kitchen around the granite.. any suggestions? The current countertop is dk turquoise corian oh help me. Tha cabinets are good quality but I swear the glaze makes them look pink. Thinking a light caramel with a coffee glaze for the cupboards.
    • All Granite and Marble 09:09AM, Sep 13 2010 J Winn: Some good colors I recommend for your design are: Tropical Brown, Baltic Brown, Butterfly Antique.

  • Ellen 06:49PM, Feb 11 2010 I am installing a Mascarello counter on a dark brown cherrywood cabinet in my masterbath, the tile is beige colors in porcelin (travertine looking)...ant suggestions on paint colors to compliment? The room is vaulted. Thanks!
    • All Granite and Marble 08:21AM, Feb 12 2010 Ellen: Perhaps a warm yellow, try Benjamin More "Lemon Grass".
  • Laura 09:40AM, Aug 1 2009 Is it possible to get mascerello granite in tiles? If so where?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:17AM, Aug 1 2009 Laura: Unfortunately, we don't really deal with tile nor do we work with any tile stores. I suggest looking locally for a vendor.
  • Claudia 01:34PM, Mar 31 2009 Just had this installed and it is fantastic! Lots of variation and interest. It has streaks of quartz and some sparkling. Highly recommended
  • susan 01:51PM, Aug 22 2008 I have ivory cabinets with a coffee glaze finish. Looking for granite, what do you suggest? Hardware is dark and floors have tile with reds, golds, and browns
    • All Granite and Marble 04:49PM, Sep 19 2008 susan: This might be too much contrast. Try Medura Gold.
