I have oak cabinets with a medium/dark stain (tobacco color). My floors are also the same color. Stainless appliances. I am looking at New Venetian Gold or Santa Cecilia. Will either of these provide the contrast I need for the kitchen?

Dan: You should be ok, provided that the backsplash will be significantly darker. On its own, St. Cecilia might be too close to the wood.

I have standard maple cabinets, and would like to use a Santa Cecilia granite. I am considering an autumn mist slate tile backsplash. A.) Does St. Cecilia look ok with Maple if the backsplash is contrasting. B.) Will the backsplash I have in mind be too busy?

Rebecca: You can go either way but matching the tile would create a smoother look.

I have a dark merlot stained cabinets, Santa Celia Granite and ceramic tile backsplash and floor. My tile is not nearly as gold as the granite, closer to a taupe. I can't find any neautral paint that looks good with both! Which is more important to match, the tile or the Ganite?

Remodeling kitchen, chose Santa Cecilia granite. Trying to pick a backsplash. Walls are deep gold, cabinets soft white with chocolate glazing. Picked a soap stone tile, very rustic and rough, colors are gold tones with brown and cream, very rich, brings drama to the kitchen...BUT,is it to much...your thoughts? Very small kitchen.

BTW.. I grew up in RP (if that is the location you are answering from) and think it is crazy that this was the first website that showed up on my search.

Daria: As with most design elements, you need some contrast to distinguish the individual pieces. Try going a little darker (perhaps matching some of the browns in the stone).

We are trying to find a tile backsplash for St. Cecilia countertops. Tumbled stones (off white, beige, tan) don't look great. Any bold ideas?

Camille: It's more of a comment box that turned into a forum ;) It might be a variation of St. Cecilia or St. Clara. Either way, as long as it's not too close to the color of the cabinets, you should be fine.

Celeste: If you're going to change the color of the cabinets, I would go much darker than the stone. Perhaps a mahogany color. Wall can be a nice pastel color.

Date: 2008-07-08 13:55:30

Jim: Yep. Good contrast.

Marmi di Carrara srl - Moderator

Date: 2008-06-30 12:26:24

Liz: Might be too close color and tone wise to the cabinets. In other words, it would blend too much.

Lynnk: In general, lighter stones will be more porous. It's not a significant difference though. Don't worry.

We are having birch cabinets in the color of "Saddle", kind of a medium caramel color. We like the Santa Cecilia granite, but have you ever heard of Santa Sylvia granite. It is quite similar only more of a beige. Or do you know it by a different name. I don't see it on your website. This forum is so nice, btw.

We have light cherry cabinets and cream walls, gunstock wood floors. Would Venetian Gold Light work for granite?

I have chosen Maple Honey Spice cabinets for our kitchen and we are thinking of St Cecilia countertops, is that a good match? We haven't decided on floor yet, but most likely it will be tile.

We are planning on antique white cabinets, tumbled marble backsplash with oil rubbed bronze accents and Santa Cecilia for the counters. We also have an island that we plan to do in a cherry color cabinet. Should we stay with Santa Cecilia for the island or is there a contrasting darker color granite that you would reccomend? Thanks.

I'm very interested in the Santa Cecilia. My cabinet is called "warm sienna" -its almost like cherry but more brown than red. What color floor and wall tile looks best with Satna Cecilia?

Thanks so much for your response, Mr/Ms (?) Moderator. If you had a store down here, we would have hurried over there so fast and hired you guys. You have an awesome business and website.

Lyn: All will work with your cabinets. Get samples, look at them in your home, then decide.

Marmi di Carrara srl - Moderator

Date: 2008-01-22 09:45:49

Lyn: Too many options to list. Since your cabinets are light/white, you can really choose a lot of different stones.

Marmi di Carrara srl - Moderator

Date: 2008-01-22 09:42:16

Steve: Yes, it would. Light contrast, but with antique cabinets, that's all you need.

tim: If you like it, go for it! It fits your color scheme very well.

Marmi di Carrara srl - Moderator

Laura: Both are very close to the wood color (which is rarely a good thing). Try the other Santa Cecilia (ID:391).

Hi--It's me again. What a great website you have! So far, I love the Shiva Kashmir Pink and St Helena (or was it Mt Helena?) I don't know what to do...I also like Santa Cecilia and NV Gold.

We are gutting out our Florida pink kitchen and replacing it with antique white cabinets and Rosello (beige w/brown veining) porcelain tiles. We would like to keep our white appliances. What color granite would look good??

We have antique white cabinets and natural oak flooring. Would St. Cecelia look good and give enough contrast?

Would Santa Cecilia or NVG look better with a medium honey stained oak? Any other suggestions?

Marmi di Carrara srl - Moderator

Date: 2008-01-08 08:45:57

Karen: Both can be found in many varieties. I think in your case it will have to come down to the actual slabs. Once you see what the slabs of each color look like in person, it will be much easier for you to decide. But both are good choices.

I am debating between NVG and Santa Cecilia counter tops. I have cinnamon-colored cherry cabinets and light yellow/gold walls with gold/red window treatments. I have heard that NVG runs very un-uniformly. Any thoughts between the two?

Marmi di Carrara srl - Moderator

Brian: I would pick the one that has the most color in it. So probably NVG.

We have minimally stained cherry cabinets and Brazillian cherry floors throughout the house. The kitchen has tons of windows and lights. The walls are pale gold in an open floorplan kitchen area. Which granite would you suggest between Santa Cecelia, New Venetian Gold, or Giallo Ornamentale?

Jackie: All three are good. This santa cecilia is my favorite though.

We have cherry cabinets with quite a bit of a red tone to them. Do you think Santa Cecilia will be a good complement? The other granites we are considering are Giallo Ornamental and New Venetian Gold. Would either of these be a better match?

Kat : That's a stunning combination, especially with the white island! Either of the two stones will look great!

I have a medium tone of cherry cabinets with an off white with bronze glaze island. Bone colored travertine floors. How do you think that Santa Cecilia (yellow) would go. The other one that I like is New Ventian Gold any other suggestions? Thanks
