  • Alice 04:30PM, Aug 24 2010 What are the dimensions of the island in this pic?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:02AM, Aug 25 2010 Alice: It's probably approx. 36" x 72" but I do not have the exact dimensions.
  • All Granite and Marble 10:53AM, May 17 2010 CAROL: A simple and neutral subway tile in a beige tone would be appropriate. Another option is a tumbled travertine tile.
  • Meredith 03:09PM, May 12 2010 Thanks so much... If we decide to use a color rather than neutral, what would you suggest? All the walls in our house are neutrals so we were thinking color in the kitchen might make it feel more cozy.
  • Meredith 12:39PM, May 12 2010 We chose kraftmaid cherry cabinets in the chocolate color with an amber yellow granite. Our floors are a butterscotch oak. Any ideas on wall paint color?
  • wanda 03:38PM, Jan 24 2010 i have a spacious lighted kit oak cab & black appl i was leaning to verde butterfly or st ceclia dark then chg to peacock gold witch u tnk is better
    • All Granite and Marble 12:14PM, Jan 25 2010 wanda: I'd go with the darker stone - verge butterfly will look beautiful.
  • Debbie 10:56AM, Jan 24 2010 We are having our kitchen redone with cherry cabinets with fruitwood stain and are picking a granite countertop - can't decide between light (Solaris) or dark (saphire blue) - any advice?
    • All Granite and Marble 11:58AM, Jan 25 2010 Debbie: I'm leaning towards the Solaris. It's rich in color and compliments the cherry beautifully.
  • Wendy 08:25PM, Jan 23 2010 I have dark ...very dark brown wood cabinets...i can only change the counter floor is tan and my applicances are stainless...what color and backsplash should i use?
    • All Granite and Marble 11:05AM, Jan 25 2010 Wendy: The Santa Cecilia pictured above is a safe choice, same with Giallo Ornamental. A tumbled marble backsplash will tie-in everything nicely.
  • Linda 08:48AM, Jan 13 2010 I have Santa Cecilia granite countertops, cupboards med oak finish, floor black slate look cushion floor. looking for colour for backsplash preferably in glass tile, need ideas how to mix to create drama, near stove area
    • All Granite and Marble 09:11AM, Jan 13 2010 Linda: You should do an earth tone scheme of inserts. These colors include browns, tans, greens, greys, blues and a few reds. As for the design, thats up to you.
  • Jean 06:41PM, Jan 11 2010 what is the difference between tropical and baltic brown?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:35AM, Jan 12 2010 Jean: Check it out for yourself, use our Stone Gallery. It's two different colors.
  • Jean 06:24PM, Jan 10 2010 i have maple cabinets with caramel stain and a maple floor with stainless appliances. i would like to do st cecilia with tumbled marble backsplash. is there a better choice?

  • Lisa 09:42PM, Jan 7 2010 I am having a house built and have picked santa cecilia for our countertops but not sure what color cabinets to go with and whether to do hardwoods or tile??
    • All Granite and Marble 07:59AM, Jan 8 2010 Lisa: Santa Cecilia looks great with dark cabinets/stains (Cherry, walnut). And a travertine tile floor will compliment it nicely.
  • SUSAN 02:50PM, Oct 17 2009 A have a very bright kitchen - with medium stained cherry cabinets accented with black outline and handles and beige (4 different shades)porcelaine floor. Wondering what you would suggest for granite counters/large center island. Many thanks!
    • All Granite and Marble 09:33AM, Oct 19 2009 SUSAN: Santa Cecilia or New Venetian Gold are choices that would provide contrast and pick up the cherry in your cabinets with their occasional burgundy speckling.

  • karen 08:51AM, Oct 15 2009 I have this granite for my countertop. I have light cherry cabinets, the island is a cream finish. What do you suggest for the backsplash? I do not get too much sunlight in my kitchen.
    • All Granite and Marble 09:33AM, Oct 15 2009 karen: A light subway tile with colorful inserts would look nice and brighten things up.
  • JOhn 01:21PM, Sep 18 2009 If Wanting to go with ceramic tile would the color still be darker? We already had a light hardwood in adjoining room.
    • All Granite and Marble 02:36PM, Sep 18 2009 JOhn : Ceramic tile would look good in a travertine color.
  • John 08:18PM, Sep 17 2009 So are you saying you would not go with tile floors?
    • All Granite and Marble 10:17AM, Sep 18 2009 John: I'm sorry, meant to write darker hardwood floors, maybe a red oak or birch.
  • John 08:16PM, Sep 15 2009 I just got Santa Cecelia in kitchen. White Cabinets and appliances. Should floor be in same family or darker since cabinetry is light. What color for walls? thinking gold?
    • All Granite and Marble 08:54AM, Sep 16 2009 John: Go with harder hardwood floors. And a golden/yellowish tone for the walls is an excellent idea.
  • Danielle 03:41PM, Sep 14 2009 I currently have white cabinet and stainless appliances. I was thinking about st ceclia granite? or should I go darker? Plus what kind of tile color would work best for the floor and backsplash?
    • All Granite and Marble 03:57PM, Sep 14 2009 Danielle: Santa Cecilia would look good, but if your kitchen is very spacious with a lot of sunlight you might want to go darker, maybe look at Baltic Brown, or Giallo Veneziano.
  • Diane 04:17PM, Sep 2 2009 We have honey oak cabinets and white appliances will santa cecilia countertop work or something in black will look nice...please guide..why does santa cecilia looks so dull in stores?
    • All Granite and Marble 09:08AM, Sep 3 2009 Diane: You can go darker with something like Ubatuba or Butterfly -- contrast is the key...if you like the Cecilia pattern but think it's dull take a look at New Venetian Gold.
  • Jim 09:38PM, Aug 3 2009 I am having a home built and we selected this countertop with Maple Cognac cabinets and Maple Sumatra floors. Will this counter work? Not sure how yellow it will run.
    • All Granite and Marble 08:49AM, Aug 4 2009 Jim: It will match well that's for sure, if it's a spacious kitchen with plenty of natural light then I don't see a problem.
  • Mary 05:52PM, Feb 21 2009 I have cabinets that have a cherry stain.Would this granite look good with them?I also like madura gold.I have warm color goldish wood floors.Thanks for your help.
    • All Granite and Marble 09:57AM, Feb 24 2009 Mary: Yes it would work. Madura might be the nicer choice though.
