BackSplash Tile Chosen! WW w/LINKY

We finally chose the tile for the backsplash in our kitchen.  The kitchen has been done for almost two years now and the backsplash just hasn't been a priority.  We are in the process of remodeling our bathroom right now and I guess my hubby figures he wants to finish everything he can finish all at once.  Any of the little things my dad can finish when he's here this summer.  He likes to have projects to work on!  (By the way Dad, there are still a lot of doors that need to be painted!)

Here were two of the three options that we had the backsplash narrowed down to:
 The one on the right doesn't actually have brown in it.  It looks that way in this picture!  I think it was reflecting the grapefruit in the bowl.  I thought I would like a little bit of reflective stainless in the backsplash.  That wasn't the case.

This was the backsplash that we ended up liking:
It actually matches our floors and counters perfectly.  .  .  .  as in, someone was spying on us when we chose our floor and counters and came up with this combination.  Seriously.  Look at the sample against our floor.  It would be the same tile, except that we have DuraCeramic on the kitchen floor instead of real ceramic or bisque.  We do actually have the exact tile in ceramic in our Master Bath.
The photo above is our counter.  See how the bottom left piece on the backsplash sample looks almost exactly the same as the counter?  Perfect!  I also liked this sample better because they had some wider tiles.  The tiles on both of the other two samples were all narrow.
