    The stone industry does not have standardized names. One stone can have multiple names. I would recommened visiting one of our yards closest to you to view our inventory and try to find a match.

  • Cristan 06:03PM, Aug 4 2014

    I purchased cinnamon sand granite counter tops from Home Depot back in 2004. I extended my kitchen and now need more granite. I used the same cabinets for the extension. My granite company and I can't find cinnamon sand anywhere. Should I use a different granite or is there another name it goes by?

  • Bridget 12:07AM, Jul 16 2014

    I have gallo veneziano granite in my kitchen with cherry cabinets. We are changing our island to be counter height, and need to replace the top. Should I try to stay with gallo veneziano, but was worried about potentially not matching up? Or was thinking of picking a coordinating granite. We are also painting our cabinets white to lighten up the kitchen, so was thinking of maybe a lighter granite that could compliment the gallo veneziano, or maybe even a darker brown or black. Help!!

  • - Jack 01:18PM, May 16 2014

    No, this would be a great contrast. You could also consider Bianco Antico for cherry cabinets. Tiles easy to maintain are ones that do not have a textured surface. Please let me know if you have any questions.

  • MommaJoy 03:30AM, May 16 2014

    Hi, We have light cherry cabinets in a kitchen that doesn't get any direct light. Would Giallo Vicenza make our kitchen too dark? Also, what type of backsplash would you recommend (something easy to clean!). Thank you!

  • - Peter 07:04PM, Feb 12 2014

    I would suggest a nice white subway tile.

  • sophia 04:33PM, Feb 12 2014

    hello - what sort of tile for splash back would work best if my kitchen is cream, giallo veneziano granite surface and lightish wooden floors?? help please

  • Peter 06:23PM, Jun 13 2013

    Something like this would pick up the Almond tones in your cabinets while providing a sharp contrast take a look let me know what you think!

  • Peter 06:21PM, Jun 13 2013

    I would suggest a darker color to add a nice contrast to your cabinets.

  • Helene 05:52PM, Jun 13 2013

    My cabinets are a light almond color. What color Granite would you suggest?? What do you think of Giallo Veneziano?

    Hi Robert, the safest overhand is 12 inches length.

  • Robert 07:39PM, Apr 1 2013

    What's the recommended unsupported overhang length for this granite? 

  • - Adrian 06:04PM, Feb 15 2013

    Hi, I feel that the Antique Brown will  contrast really nicely to the Giallo Veneziano Granite, which colour is warm and classic. Another option to the Giallo Veneziano could be Giallo Napoleone: or Santa Cecilia: . I hope that will help you !

  • kel5556 07:19PM, Feb 13 2013

    Hello, I've recently had Antique Brown (although it's very dark and almost looks black) in my kitchen.  The contractor put in a piece on the island that was the incorrect size and has to replace it.  Would Giallo Venetziano match for the center island piece in a kitchen that already has Antique Brown on the perimeter?

  • - Derek 07:56PM, Feb 8 2013

    Hello there. Please accept my deepest apologies for the delay in replying to you. I think the Giallo Veneziano has plenty of warm highlights and a medium shaded base that will both pick-up and contrast the cherry wood at the same time for a balanced combination. Go for it!

  • KEH5 01:19PM, Jan 30 2013

    I have cherry cabinet with Vermont finish. How do you think the Giallo Veneziano granite will look with them?

  • - Derek 08:51PM, Dec 13 2012

    Hello. My recommendation would be a warm neutral beige to accentuate the design nicely. Take a look at colors in the family of Benjamin Moore series Lighthouse Landing.

  • Hunt7399 04:42PM, Dec 11 2012

    i have medium brown cadinets,veneziano counter tops light beige tile, getting ready to sell,  open floor plan, what can i use on walls to compliment small overall area                  
    Thank you

  • - Natalia 01:43PM, Oct 18 2012

    Hi. It sounds like your cabinet color tone is a medium to dark brownish shade. The Giallo Veneziano is a classic color style with warm highlights. I'd recommend a subtle and neutral wall paint color. You should look at Benjamin Moore series selections such as Linen White and Navajo White. Hope this helps!

  • - Natalia 01:41PM, Oct 18 2012

    Sounds good! That's a very appropriate choice for your kitchen set-up. You should visit a Benjamin Moore paint store to acquire samples and paint chips before making a final decision. Hope this helps!

  • Vishnus_mohan 12:08PM, Oct 18 2012


    We have auburn glaze cabinets with giallo veneziano countertop and with tumbled cream blacksplash. What color wall paint will go well it this. Thanks,

  • Dpkane322 02:15AM, Oct 18 2012

    I like the Grafton Brown.

  • - Derek 12:58PM, Oct 12 2012

    Hi there. The Giallo Veneziano is a popular granite choice that will add serenity and warmth to the kitchen set-up along with a classic feel. Some other options for you to check out could be Santa Cecilia, Ouro Brasil, or Copa Gold. I've created a Comparison Table of my choices for your easy side-by-side reference: Hope this helps!

  • Drdaniellemiller 03:30AM, Oct 12 2012

    Hi.  We have white kitchen cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and the kitchen wall color is Benjamin Moore Saybrook Sage.  We're looking for a warm, brown/tan granite for our countertops.  Would you suggest Giallo Veneziano?  What would some other options be?  Thanks so much for your help!

  • - Natalia 02:09PM, Oct 9 2012

    Thanks, I found it! Lapland is a safe choice but it's a little dark, I am leaning more toward a similar shade but a little more neutral and lighter such as Benjamin Moore series Mosaic Tile or perhaps even Grafton Brown. Let me know your thoughts on these two. 

  • Dpkane322 02:29AM, Oct 8 2012

    Hi Natalia,

    I saw the color on the Benjamin Moore web site. It a greenish tan.

  • - Natalia 02:38PM, Oct 1 2012

    Hi there. I am not familiar with the Lapland wall color. What line of paint offers this color? (company name) so I can look it up online. Or you can upload a photo here of the color for me to see. Thanks!

  • Dpkane322 03:04AM, Sep 30 2012

    I planning on getting Giallo Veneziano as a kitchen counter top and from previous posts Crema Marfil tile would work great as a backsplash.  Question about wall paint...Do you recommend Lapland as a great color?  I'm open to any color that would work well.

  • - Derek 04:54PM, Sep 13 2012

    Absolutely! Although there is not much contrast, it's a fine match for the set-up if you want a warm feel. Some other options I recommend are Boreal and Tropical Brown. Hope this helps!

  • Soniapaul 04:11PM, Sep 13 2012

    Will Giallo Veneziano work with Golden Oak cabinets?

  • - Derek 05:59PM, Aug 29 2012

    I recommend the grout color Tobacco Brown from the Home Depot line. That should complement the Giallo Veneziano nicely. Good luck!

  • Pedro 02:41AM, Aug 22 2012

    I recently installed giallo veneziano granite tiles in my dining room and kitchen and I used a coffee color grout however the grout looks to light. What color grout do you recommend?

  • - Derek 03:14PM, Aug 6 2012

    Hello. Crema Marfil is a marble, but a backsplash tile of this light, warm color would be very appropriate. I've attached a photo for your reference. For a travertine suggestion, I recommend Ivory travertine. I've also attached  a photo of that. Hope this helps!

  • Michele 02:59AM, Jul 30 2012

    I have giallo venenzia counters. My cabinets are soft cream with carmel glaze bead board  and the island is cherry with an autumn finish. The floor is arrowanda bamboo. I was thinking of a soft beige subway tile backsplash, but think I may need sometime of accent and have no idea what to do.(after reading all the comments I"m thinking I should switch to a crema marfil travertine)

  • - Natalia 04:14PM, Jul 5 2012

    Hi Stacy. In regard to the backsplash, you can use a calm and neutral tile shade such as Crema Marifl tumbled marble. The floor tile can be warmer and richer with a choice such as Daltile Portenza Terra di Siena Porcelain tile. I've attached photos for your reference. Good luck!

  • Stacy 03:21PM, Jun 30 2012

    we have light maple cabinets in the kitchen with the Giallo Vincenza granite
    counter tops. We want to add new floor tiles and new back splash to match
    the Giallo Vincenza tops. What colors do you recommend?

  • - Derek 05:47PM, Jun 8 2012

    We do not sell bullnose tiles, sorry.

  • Ginahabet 03:53PM, Jun 4 2012

    Do you sell bullnose tiles to match the Giallo Venezziano granite tiles?

  • - Derek 04:34PM, May 29 2012

    I recommend to use Benjamin Moore line color called Lapland. This easy-to-use neutral is deep but not too dark, adding just the right depth of color to your family look and looks great with the Barely Beige color.

  • Jill 09:50AM, May 28 2012

    was wondering if you could help us again with paint colors,you had given us some great suggestions after we did our kitchen now I need some ides for our living room....we have medium cherry floors in our livingroom and hallway.we are looking for a color of sage green to go with an accent wall that is barely beige and also looking for a color for the hallway...

  • - Derek 03:25PM, May 21 2012

    You should use honed surface in your situation as Kinga suggested. As long as it's light warm brown natural travertine then it will be an excellent choice. 

  • - Kinga 11:49AM, May 19 2012

    I like the Torreon travertine as it’s a soft and warm tile that will work great in your space. Since you are using it around the tub, I would probably recommend a honed tile as opposed to tumbled. Tumbled travertine is rough to the touch while the honed is smooth and elegant. Hope this helps, good luck!

  • kim 11:17AM, May 19 2012

    Thank you for your suggestion , Derek.  The other travertine we were looking at was Torreon/Cappuccino.  Any thoughts on that one compared to Angelica or Azteca?  Also, would you recommend a honed stone or a tumbled stone for the backsplash of the tub?

  • - Derek 03:54PM, May 16 2012

    Angelica travertine is a stunning, warm brown color that would fit your bathroom set-up quite nicely. Another option I recommend is Tumbled Azteca 4" x 4" tiles. I've attached photos for your reference.

  • Kim 08:48PM, May 14 2012

    We are remodeling our master bathroom.  Using soft white cabinets with a slate hightlight, juperana persa for countertop, and porcelain wood planks for the floor.  We now need to find a tile for the shower and the tub.  I saw angelica travertine today and thought that looked nice.  Would you recommend this?  What else would you recommend?

  • - Derek 03:05PM, May 14 2012

    Sure! Take a look at Oyster Mix Flamed travertine and Crema Marfil Tumbled marble. I've attached photos for your reference of these light, neutral choices. Hope this helps!

  • Grvn2 04:07PM, May 7 2012

    I am getting Giallo Veneziano countertops and maple cabinets with a caramel stain. We have a neutral tile floor. Our kitchen is not very big. I am struggling with what to do for a backsplash since I don't want it to appear too busy. Do you have anny suggestions?

  • - Derek 09:34PM, Apr 27 2012

    It's not best to use regular mortar for granite tile installation. You should use thinset or a mud job can be performed. A mud job requires troweling a cement mortar then beating tiles into this cement base before the cement is cured. The grout color on a mud job is usually a grey (grey cement) for the floor.

  • PeteDC99 04:40PM, Apr 23 2012

    What type of mortar should I use when installing Giallo Veneziano grantie floor tiles? Any recommendation on grout color as well?

  • - Derek 03:04PM, Apr 5 2012

    You're welcome! I recommend strongly to look at the full slabs in-person by visiting a stone yard. Let me know what you end up choosing!

  • CTWiley 12:29AM, Apr 5 2012

    I've checked out the photos and I like the Tropical Brown or the Toffee.  But I had planned to use a medium to darker brown vanity - so I am thinking it might be too much brown...........I'll have another look and think about it.  I did like the New Venetian Gold as well - I didn't care for the Santa Cecilia as much, but it's hard to tell in a photo.  The "work example" photos are much easier.........and I do thank you very much for responding!

  • - Derek 07:46PM, Apr 4 2012

    Are there any granite colors that have caught your attention so far? I am leaning toward warm choices such as Giallo Ornamental, Santa Cecilia Classic, and New Venetian Gold. For some darker suggestions, consider Tropical Brown and Toffee. Let me know your thoughts on these!

  • CTWiley 08:07PM, Mar 31 2012

    We are building a house and have done the bathroom floors and tub surround in Crema Mafil marble tile.  We have an accent row of glass tiles about eye level in Hemp color.  So far it looks great.  I have to chose a vanity top and I don't want marble and am leaning towards granite.  What color do you suggest?  Thanks!

  • - Derek 08:47PM, Feb 24 2012

    I'd use a neutral, light, and soft color such as Benjamin Moore "Honeyed Almond". 

  • Tracy 03:37PM, Feb 20 2012 I have giallo venenziano counters, natural cherry cabinets, stainless appliances, porcelain  tile floors (colors browns, chocolates) can't decide what paint color, help
  • - Derek 05:26PM, Feb 11 2012 Thanks for the information Loco53, it sounds like your kitchen came out looking very lovely and warm. This is sure to help someone in their decisions and make them less worried about their decision to use our Giallo Veneziano!
  • Loco53 07:44PM, Feb 7 2012 I currently have the giallo veneziano countertops and full height wall backsplash as well. I have honey maple cabinets with a cherry floor. The multi colored granite ties everything in and gives my galley stvle kitchen a warm and fiendly feeling.
  • - Derek 01:01PM, Oct 13 2011 Unfortunately we do not have any installed Giallo Veneziano portfolio pictures at this time, but I can assure you that this would be a very warm and inviting combination.
  • Andrea 03:57AM, Oct 13 2011 I currently have purchased a home and decided to get the fairfield maple cognac cabinets with the giallo veneziano granite countertops. I intend on getting hardwood floors just don't know which color yet. Do you have any suggestions on how this may look or pictures? I really need to get a visual of the combination. Thanks.
  • - Kinga 06:50PM, Oct 6 2011 Click the link to view my suggestions. Let us know what you think!
  • - Derek 01:26PM, Oct 6 2011 Absolutely! I've created a Comparison Chart for you of my suggestions to go against your cabinet shade: Let me know if that's going in a direction that you enjoy.
  • Thluu 01:24AM, Oct 6 2011 My cabinets are caramel in color.  What do you recommend as granite countertops?  can you suggests a few color names?  Thanks.
  • - Derek 02:55PM, Sep 30 2011 Hmm...take a look at Golden Valley KG/MG, Peregrine C, and Sunflower. Good luck!
  • Irisho55 02:42PM, Sep 30 2011 Thank you so much.  If I wanted to use a granite in the same color tones but with the "vein" design, rather than "speckled", which granite would you recommend?
  • - Derek 08:49PM, Sep 28 2011 I'd use the darker Tropical Brown to offset the creme colored cabinetry. The black colored flecks in the stone will compliment your appliances nicely.
  • Irisho55 02:57PM, Sep 28 2011 I am having new creamy white cabinets with rubbed oil hardware installed.  We have honey oak wood flooring and black appliances.  I am torn between Tropical Brown and Giallo Veneziano.   Please help.
  • - Derek 06:31PM, Sep 16 2011 Giallo Veneziano is a warm color, but some deliveries may have some pinkish undertones. I recommend to look at the slabs in-person and pick the one you like best. Take a look at a Comparison Table of the various batches we carry of this same stone and you will know what I mean:
  • JaneKee 06:05PM, Sep 16 2011 I've ordered Cherry Kitchen Cabinets with a Burgandy finish.  I have a white oak floor with clear finish.  Would Giallo Veneziano be a good granite?  I don't want a pink granite.
  • - Derek 01:16PM, Sep 9 2011 Make sure to look at the slab(s) in-person and pick one that does not have overwhelmingly orange-like undertones. If the color of the stone is more on the warm brown side, then go for it! Although my personal suggestions would be Giallo Napoleone, and Santa Cecilia Real. Hope this did not confuse you, let me know what you think!
  • sarah 01:09AM, Sep 9 2011 HI, I have Timberlake Maple Cognac cabinets and gunstock oak hardwood floor, will the giallo veneziano granite look nice?
  • - Derek 03:24PM, Sep 1 2011 That sounds like an interesting floor tile you have there. With the Veneziano, you're leaning toward a blending of the cabinet and countertop aspects; which is not always a good thing.  A contrast will make the room vibrant and less boring. By offsetting the cabinets and creating a contrast, the kitchen becomes less stark and dull. In conclusion, I'd use a color that is a darker for that crucial contrast. My suggestions are Tropical Brown, Florence Gold, Imperial Coffee, Bahia Brown, and Butterfly Antique. Let me know what you think!
  • - Derek 12:31PM, Sep 1 2011 I'm enjoying Kinga's suggestions of using a dark and elegant granite color with green undertones, these stones look very rich against your cabinet shade. Some other suggestions, in the dark browns family that could look very nice, are Imperial Coffee and Tropical Brown. Good luck!
  • Dtponti 06:21PM, Aug 28 2011 I have maple cabinets, looking to do granite counter top with some type backsplash, my floor has greenish and honey tones. I am torn between contrast and or more of a blending of tones.  I saw a travertine tile back splash I liked as well. I am drawn to the Giallo veneziano
  • - Kinga 09:43PM, Aug 26 2011 Take a look at Ubatuba, Butterfly Jade and Seaweed Green. A dark stone would provide your cabinets a beautiful contrast and the green tone would make the cabinets pop and tie the space together. Greens tend to look fantastic against oak. Let me know what you think!
  • - Kinga 01:34PM, Aug 11 2011 Crema Bordeaux paired with tumbled marble for the backsplash would be a wonderful combination for your space. Also check out the Siena Bordeaux.  I feel it would deliver the southwest style you are going for. Let me know what you think!
  • - Derek 01:25PM, Aug 9 2011 Any colors you've looked at so far that you are attracted to? Do you like veins and movement in the granite, or a more consistent, speckled pattern? The granite should be chosen before backsplash and paint color decisions are made. Going by your design, a stone such as Crema Bordeaux would be a rich option and look beautiful, what do you think?
  • steve 02:15AM, Aug 7 2011 We were trying to do a southwest feel in our home. For the floor we choose sedona bronze travertine. We have natural knotty alder shutters with a van dyke glaze. We did cherry wood cabinets the stain is called cherry chocolate and we did the island bar a warm cameo cream color with the van dyke glaze.  Any help choosing granite, backsplash, and and paint colors would be much appreciated! 

  • - Kinga 05:25PM, Jun 23 2011 It’s always a good idea to see slabs you like in person and pick up samples to bring home for viewing. It makes a big difference to see a stone online and in person!
  • - Derek 01:52PM, Jun 22 2011 We have Giallo Veneziano in-stock at our Ridgefield Park NJ, Stroudsburg PA, South Plainfield NJ, and Danbury CT locations, come take a look! For a price on your countertop, send over the measurements to our sales office.
  • - Derek 01:06PM, Jun 22 2011 The Baltic Brown is a classic and timeless choice that continues to be popular and well-liked for it's warm tones, go for it!
  • MyTinMan 07:49PM, Jun 21 2011 We are redoing an outside pass through bar. Looking for a remnant piece of Gallio Veneciano in the Tan, Beige, Black and Gray Tones (no gold, peach or pink)....84"x18" that will come close to our existing Kitchen counters!

    Thank you in advance.
  • - Kinga 02:37PM, Jun 21 2011 I think the Baltic Brown would look lovely with travertine. I really enjoy the natural look of the stone and the colors are a perfect touch to complete the space. My vote is for the Baltic Brown!
  • Marcg9 02:12AM, Jun 21 2011 i think i might choose the baltic brown, and would it be ok to go with a travertine? backsplash and similar wall color of the tile. thanks for the help.....
  • - Kinga 07:47PM, Jun 16 2011 Marcg9,

    I feel that the Giallo Veneziano may be a bit too light for your setup. Take a look at the Baltic Brown, Copa Gold, Tan Brown and Imperial Coffee- if you really want to make a statement. You should stay away from colors that are too close to your cabinets or floors as the space may end up feeling bland or ‘washed out’. You want to add balance and contrast in the space to make it visually appealing. You should work with the same color palette but go slightly darker on the countertop. Let me know what you think so far!
  • - Derek 01:57PM, Jun 16 2011 I think one of the warmer options in the Giallo family would be perfect for your set-up. I suggest Giallo Vicenza, and Giallo Ornamental. Let me know what you think.
  • Marcg9 01:24AM, Jun 16 2011 Hi, i cant decide on countertop. I have oak flooring with cinamon maple cabinets. A mix of black and stainless cabinets. Its a small kitchen with an island. I was leaning toward the giallo's. But also considered a black countertop. Thanks for your opinion!
  • All Granite and Marble 07:15PM, Jun 6 2011 I'm leaning towards Giallo Veneziano out of your three options. It's a very warm choice that will compliment your cabinet color beautifully. Hope this helps.
  • Minmouse81 05:52PM, Jun 6 2011 Hi I am trying to decide between giallo vieneziano, fiorito, and ornamental. I am having a hard time picking. My cabinets are going to be maple. I love earth tones. Any help would be appreciated.
  • Mike 09:22AM, May 18 2011 We have kitchen cabinets made of natural oak and giallo veneciano flor. What you suggest for countertop? Thanks
    • All Granite and Marble 12:11PM, May 18 2011 Mike: I'd use a darker color for the countertop. Take a look at Tropical Brown, Platinum Bahia, Boreal, and Dakota Mahogany.
  • Elizabeth 10:39PM, Feb 28 2011 Hi there, We have cherry wood cabniet in a traditional style with giallo veneziano counter tops. It's a big kitchen. It already came with a 4 inch GV backsplash. Would you install a full backsplash? If so, what colour? I'm leaning towards a Crema Marfil colour in a 2x4 subway tile.
    • All Granite and Marble 08:40AM, Mar 1 2011 Elizabeth : A Crema Marfil subway tile backsplash is great to go against Giallo Veneziano, go for it!
  • Jill 03:24AM, Feb 24 2011 me and my husband have medium cherry hardwood floors in our livingroom and hallway and are thinking about repainting the walls.we were thinking bm's dry sage for the livingroom and bm's lenox tan for the you think this will work or should we paint everything one color?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:15AM, Feb 25 2011 Jill: They don't have to be one color. The more colorful, the better!
  • Andy 04:49PM, Dec 21 2010 we liked the the look of all the tile that you had suggested in the end we did go with the tumbled travertine 4x4 but we went with a country beige and it really worked with the barely beige walls,thanks again for your advice.
    • All Granite and Marble 11:40AM, Dec 22 2010 Andy: Your welcome, i'm glad everything worked out nicely!
  • Andy 03:55AM, Dec 20 2010 the tumbled travertine tile in mocha and noce were nice and were leaning towards the mocha but wanted to look at something lighter in the travertine,can you give us 2 more choices.
    • All Granite and Marble 09:23AM, Dec 20 2010 Andy: Sure, please take a look at travertine silyon or angelica travertine.
  • Andy 09:27AM, Dec 18 2010 we have cherry cabinets in a cabernet finish with giallo veneziano counter top and our walls are painted barely beige,we now want to do a tile backsplash and was wondering what color and brand you recomend.
    • All Granite and Marble 11:57AM, Dec 18 2010 Andy: I recommend to use a tumbled travetine tile in the noce or mocha variety.
  • Chris 08:08PM, Nov 15 2010 Hi, We have this on our kitchen island, baking counter and in family room adjacent. We want to do our kitchen/sink/stove area, and have maple cabinets with stainless steel appliances, Mexican tile floor. We want to contrast this stone (165); what do you suggest?
    • All Granite and Marble 11:30AM, Nov 16 2010 Chris: I recommend Butterfly Antique or something similar to that color tone.
  • Jocelyn 08:10AM, Sep 29 2010 I am having antique white cabinets installed and I have kind of rustic oak hardwood floors. Would the Giallo Fiorito or the Old Giallo Veneziano look good with this combo?
    • All Granite and Marble 08:58AM, Sep 29 2010 Jocelyn: I'm leaning towards the Giallo Veneziano, it's a softer tone.
  • Gwen 09:46PM, Sep 28 2010 The granite colour is actually the new venetian gold not GV. I already confirmed the order prior to getting my first message back. Is it still ok with my espresso coloured cabinets? The cabinets are not as dark though.
    • All Granite and Marble 09:02AM, Sep 29 2010 Gwen : Yes the New Venetian Gold is also an excellent choice for your design, go for it!
  • Gwen 10:28PM, Sep 25 2010 Hi, I have espesso colour cabinets in maple. My floors is a combo of beige and light brown. Does this colour work or am I better off lookin at a colonial cream? As well, what would u suggest as a backsplash and in what colours?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:53AM, Sep 28 2010 Gwen: I'm leaning towards the Colonial Cream. For backsplash, a tumbled travertine tile is very appropriate.
  • Barb 10:17PM, Jun 3 2010 I am moving into a new home - I have chosen travertine for the bathroom floor and the shower with glass tile accent in cream, beige, and grayish brown. The cabinets are white as well as sink and toilet. There is no natural light in the bathroom. I'm thinking of making the double sink vanity top Giallo Vincenza. Do you think it will be to dark or will it make a nice contrast?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:04AM, Jun 4 2010 Barb: I think it will offset the white cabinets nicely, go for it!
  • Bob 05:54PM, May 11 2010 I have Mahogany cabinets and Maple flooring. Is Giallo Veneziano a suitable choice for granite counter tops? Can you suggest a tile color for the back splash with GV?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:41AM, May 12 2010 Bob: It's a suitable choice. It will compliment the mahogany nicely and create a warm feel. Try a tumbled travertine tile for backsplash.
  • Kerri 05:46PM, May 7 2010 Hello and thank you for answering my question regarding matching up my Giallo Veneziano counter top with a light travertine. Could I ask if you could select it and let me know. The floor guys will be here on Thursday for hardwood installation and they will be measuring then so I will know how much to order from you. Thank you, Kerri
    • All Granite and Marble 10:38AM, May 8 2010 Kerri: To place an order you must contact the sales office. Visit the "Contact Us" page.
  • Kerri 11:31PM, May 6 2010 Could you assist me in picking out a contrasting natural flooring to go with Giallo Vicenza? The cabinets are a medium cinnamon cherry in color.
    • All Granite and Marble 08:48AM, May 7 2010 Kerri: Try a light travertine tile.
  • susi 03:20PM, Apr 27 2010 would this look good in a honey oak colored kithchen, floors and cabinets? Is this anything like the Vicenza? I am having a tough time making a choice!
    • All Granite and Marble 04:17PM, Apr 27 2010 susi: I'd steer away from more golden tones in your design. Try Tropical Brown.
  • Katie 10:59AM, Apr 25 2010 I have maple cabinets, dark would floors, stainless steel applainces would the Giallo Veneziano countertop look good. Also looking toward getting a a light browns glass mosaic backsplash. Would this match.I want people to walk into my kitchen and say wow. I need help.
    • All Granite and Marble 09:45AM, Apr 26 2010 Katie: It would look beautiful. Giallo Veneziano definitely has the "wow" factor.
  • Andy 04:15AM, Apr 15 2010 after having the company I bought my granite from tell me they can't get some scratches out of my granite I used scratch-x(a car wax)on some scratches on my new granite,it seems to hide them,will car wax damage granite in anyway
    • All Granite and Marble 09:13AM, Apr 15 2010 Andy: I would absolutely NOT recommend to use car wax on granite. It will strip off the sealer that protects the stone.
  • Jillian 09:01PM, Apr 14 2010 Love the Giallo V. I have antique gold accents in my dark oak kitchen and a light peach floor. Slab looks like it may have a bit of peach in it...true?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:12AM, Apr 15 2010 Jillian: It does have some peach undertones. Get a sample of the stone, put it in your kitchen lighting next to your cabinets, and see how it ties in.
  • Saadiya 01:19PM, Apr 14 2010 I keep hearing that the Santa Cecilia is too yellow in a slab form. Is that true? Will it contrast well with the Auburn Cabinets. I don't want something that sticks out too much but I do really like the way Santa Cecilia looks in a small 5"x5" square. Comments?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:08AM, Apr 15 2010 Saadiya: Each delivery of Santa Cecilia changes slighty in color tone. Take a sample and put it in your kitchen light next to the cabinets and see how it looks. If you like it, go for it! Should compliment the auburn nicely.
  • Saadiya 07:31AM, Apr 14 2010 I'm planning on putting in Auburn colored cabinets (cherry) and an having issues as to which granite to use for countertops. Current options are Giallo Veneziano, Santa Cecilia or Key Wst Gold. I don't want the kitchen to look too dark. Any suggestions?
    • All Granite and Marble 08:48AM, Apr 14 2010 Saadiya: I'm leaning towards the Santa Cecilia, it's warm and inviting. Another option is New Venetian Gold.
  • Linda 05:33PM, Mar 29 2010 I am getting my kitchen countertops redone. Would like opinion on which granite color. I have narrowed my choices to santa cecelia or giollo vereziono. My cabinets are medium to dark oak and floors are tan. Also what color hardware do you recommend. I have none now, and would like to add it. My appliances are black, but I am switching to stainless steel--one piece at a time beggining with the cooktop. Thanks in advance.
    • All Granite and Marble 08:47AM, Mar 30 2010 Linda: I'm leaning towards the lighter Santa Cecilia for more contrast, and i'm concerned the Veneziano might look a tad on the orange side with your set-up.
  • Sarai 04:41AM, Mar 28 2010 we are redoing kitchen!!! Got hardwood floor (golden teak/ is dark in color), and maple mocha-glazed cabinets. We just ordered Giallo Veneziano granite. What do you think.... Will it go well..
    • All Granite and Marble 12:59PM, Mar 29 2010 Sarai: Absolutely! Excellent combination.
  • Jen 04:18PM, Feb 22 2010 I have whiskey cherry cabinets, cafe colored tile floor, and stainless appliances. Would Giallo Fiorti, Vicenza, or Veneziano look best?
    • All Granite and Marble 05:35PM, Feb 22 2010 Jen: A granite with a golden tone will look rich and warm against your cherry cabinets, go with the Veneziano!
  • Sue 02:07PM, Feb 13 2010 Would Giallo Veneziano work with golden oak cabinets
    • All Granite and Marble 08:52AM, Feb 16 2010 Sue: Might be a little too close in color tone, try Tropical Brown.
  • rosemary 10:49PM, Feb 8 2010 I have dark cognac cabinets and light gold floor tile. Is Giallo Veneziano a suitable choice for granite piece?
    • All Granite and Marble 12:50PM, Feb 9 2010 rosemary: Absolutely.
  • gina 12:49PM, Feb 5 2010 Trying to decide between NVG, SC, and GV with maple cabs (ginger spice, mocha glaze) and light honey oak flooring, stainless appliances. Want something timeless and traditional. All 3 of these samples look similar to me in person, what are the main differences?
    • All Granite and Marble 03:38PM, Feb 5 2010 gina: NVG and SC are very similar, NVG is a little warmer while SC has more black. GV is more brown. I'd go with New Venetian Gold.
  • Andy 05:14AM, Jan 28 2010 we have 3 paints we like for our walls to go with dark cherry cabinets and giallo veneziano countertop,monroe bisque,yosimite sand or shaker beige,what do you think?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:05AM, Jan 28 2010 Andy: I'm leaning towards the Yosimite Sand, it's very warm and inviting.
  • Andy 07:41PM, Jan 23 2010 today I went to pick out my granite countertop,it said Giallo Italy on the back,the owner said it was Giallo Venziano Italy,it very much looked liked the granite in this picture.not sure why he called it one name and another was printed on the back.
    • All Granite and Marble 11:04AM, Jan 25 2010 Andy: Different fabricators gives stones their own name, it gets quite confusing.
  • Amy 02:39PM, Nov 17 2009 I have oak cabinets, oak hardwood floors, white appliances to be replaced with stainless as they wear out except for dishwasher which will be replaced with granite install. Home is only eight years old so fairly current in kitchen design. Walls are currently lighter than sage green but color most likely will be changed after granite install. We are going back and forth between Giallo Veneziano and similar lighter granites - Giallo Napolean, Santa Cecilia and darker granites - Verde Butterfly, Verde Peacock, Emerald Pearl, or black/grays. Kitchen is large with attached 4 window bay for dining so it gets a lot of light. Opinions?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:57AM, Nov 18 2009 Amy: It's really a matter of going dark or light. Veneziano looks good with Oak, as does the Butterfly. Considering you have lots of light, I would lean towards going with a darker granite, plus it will contrast the cabinets beautifully.
  • Micki 11:18PM, Oct 21 2009 One more you have any other suggestion of a granite that would look good with the honey-spice maple cabinets? Possibly one that would give more contrast. I'm not totally attached to Giallo Veneziano but I do like it.
    • All Granite and Marble 08:55AM, Oct 22 2009 Micki: Check out New Venetian Gold.
  • Micki 08:32PM, Oct 20 2009 I have honey-spice maple cabinets with a beigey-marble like ceramic tile floor. The floor tile has a hint of a mild rust color in it. I'm looking at either Santa Cecilia or Giallo Veneziano for the bathroom countertop with a white sink. What do you think?
    • All Granite and Marble 01:09PM, Oct 21 2009 Micki: I would go with Giallo Veneziano.
  • Erica 08:15PM, Jul 25 2009 How do you think this countertop would look with cherry cabinets (chestnut stain) and oak hardwood floors? Too light? Too dark? Just right?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:02AM, Jul 27 2009 Erica: It would look really nice! Any gold color works with cherry cabinets.
  • dee 12:53PM, Jul 7 2009 giallo vicenzo is it too dark ?
    • All Granite and Marble 01:23PM, Jul 7 2009 dee: Too dark for what?
  • Corina 05:24PM, Jul 22 2008 I am looking at Giallo Veneziano. I have marbled looking porcelain tiles on the floor showing a mixture of dark brown, yellow ochre (almost golden tan) and cream colors. First, do you think this granite will go with the floor tile and second do you have any recommendations for color of the wall to pull them together? Thank you for you help.
    • All Granite and Marble 02:57PM, Jul 25 2008 Corina: I'm not sure what to recommend to you for the floor tile. I guess you could replicate the backsplash but in bigger tiles (18"). For the wall color, pick one that is common for both the stone and cabinets, then find a lighter tone of that same color.
  • Julie 11:59PM, Jul 16 2008 Do you think giallo veneziano would work with honey maple cabinets and s.s. appliances? Not sure of paint color yet and going with a lighter wood laminate flooring. Thanks
    • All Granite and Marble 06:50PM, Jul 17 2008 Julie: It depends how light/dark the cabinets are. It might work if the maple is light.
  • Kelly 02:15AM, May 21 2008 I just purchased some granite with this color and it looks like there are fingerprints all over that won't come off. Do you have any suggestions? Is that normal? I didn't purchase from your company
    • All Granite and Marble 04:46PM, Jun 24 2008 Kelly: Could be many things. Can you feel them on the surface or are they just visible but not tangible?
  • paul 07:05PM, Apr 5 2008 hi is this a blue/siver/double silver grade in your granite collection
    • All Granite and Marble 04:09PM, Apr 8 2008 paul: Call our office to find out :)
  • Amy 08:30PM, Mar 23 2008 I have yellowish natural cabinets, I am looking at this. What colors would you recommend as wall tile?
    • All Granite and Marble 05:49PM, Apr 4 2008 Amy: Off white, tan maybe. Something that doesn't blend too much with the stone.
  • Danielle 11:05PM, Mar 16 2008 would gaiallo veneziano look good with cherry cabinets and beige walls?
    • All Granite and Marble 11:13AM, Apr 4 2008 Danielle: That depends on the darkness of the cherry wood. The darker the better.
  • Alison 05:41PM, Mar 11 2008 If you could pick between ivory cabinets or any other painted finish with this granite, what would U choose?
    • All Granite and Marble 01:17PM, Apr 3 2008 Alison: Ivory or white. They will contrast the stone very nicely.
  • Jeannie 10:44PM, Feb 12 2008 Would you suggest this with maple cabinets with roselle stain?? Light tan tile/stainless appliances?
    • All Granite and Marble 11:27AM, Feb 15 2008 Jeannie: Toned down choice, but it will work.
  • Cor 01:01PM, Dec 31 2007 Hi, We have installed Giallo Veneziano slabs for our countertops & will use the same as 12" tiles for the backsplash. This granite is a peach-red-organge-black color that matches peach walls. What color grout should we use? (cabinets are off white w/ black stove & microwave).
    • All Granite and Marble 12:27PM, Jan 3 2008 Cor: First of all, MAKE SURE that you receive a sample of the tile from the actual batch you will be buying! It is crucial to check if the color matches with the countertops. Now for the grout, a professional tile installer will be able to color match the grout to the tiles. If not, I would probably go with an off white.
  • Mbienvenu 01:47PM, Dec 17 2007 Having trouble choosing my granite in my kitchen. I have choosen sorreal sky maple cabinets. The sample of granite at show room for Giallo Veneziano has some salmon color in it. Therefore, I have looked into a 18 x 18 tile that has the salmon, browns, and creams for the floor. Then use the same tile but smaller on the backsplash. To much orange?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:33AM, Dec 22 2007 Mbienvenu: You probably should not use the same colors for the floor, countertop and backsplash.
  • Vickie 04:47PM, Dec 5 2007 Hi, thanks for your help. The floor is a beige tile, the appliances are white and walls are painted a khaki color. Thank You
    • All Granite and Marble 10:14AM, Dec 7 2007 Vickie: I don't see any problems then :) Good luck with the remodeling!
  • kathy 01:52PM, Dec 4 2007 i have white cabinets with cherry hardwood floors, do you think this would look ok?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:12AM, Dec 7 2007 kathy: This would be Ok, but I would still look for something that ties to the cherry floor.
  • Vickie 11:51AM, Nov 28 2007 I am thinking about getting Giallo Veneziano, I have white cabinets, would this match?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:07AM, Dec 4 2007 Vickie: Yes, you should be ok. What other colors are in the kitchen?
  • Sara 11:06AM, Nov 6 2007 How would this look with Maple wood caninets with chestnut stained? Any suggestion?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:00AM, Nov 7 2007 Sara: Depends on the lighting. You don't want the cabinets to look the same as the top.
  • sunnill 05:16PM, Nov 2 2007 Hi, We just got Giallo Veneziano countertops installed in our kitchen , with neutral colored backsplash , could you please suggest some cabinet colors? We currently have white cabinets, intend to repaint them. Thanks
    • All Granite and Marble 12:09PM, Nov 5 2007 sunnill: Depending on what wood the cabinets are, I'd try to keep them light. Maybe just a natural wood color (strip the paint).
  • Kelly 06:21PM, Nov 1 2007 Our cabinets are honey spice oak; how would giallo veneziano look?
    • All Granite and Marble 12:06PM, Nov 5 2007 Kelly: Pretty nice I think.
  • Mike 11:51PM, Oct 24 2007 We had giallo venziano counter tops done and chery wood cbinets Would like to know a 16x16 tile that would match on the floor and also what would be a good backsplash thanks Mike

  • rose 07:01PM, Oct 21 2007 We are going to have coffee glazed maple cabinets. How would this granite look?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:19AM, Oct 23 2007 rose: It would look OK. It might lack contrast.
  • Janine 10:14AM, Sep 14 2007 How would this look with cherry cabinets?
    • All Granite and Marble 08:45AM, Sep 18 2007 Janine: It would look nice! Any gold color will look good.
