Pewter travertine would blend perfectly into my Texas Pioneer Kitchen. The black stainless appliances will set off the stone in such a dramatic way. Looks like I selected the same picture as someone else entering the contest. I do like the stone tile.
Erika @ Urban Grace Interiors uses a simple, clean subway tile, but also uses a decorative border at the top. Via decorpad. I'm a fan of contrasting the crisp whiteness of the subway tile with a pretty paint color on the wall.
