Tile Terror

I am having a moment...well maybe several moments. I cannot commit to a shape for the back splash tile. Lead time is a couple of months and that translates to order today.

Option 1 square Moroccan  Zelig tile below from Mosaic Del Sur. Simple, classic, timeless in an opalescent white.

Yes, Brooke Shields has the same tile in her NYC apartment kitchen. I love this kitchen.

Option 2 arabesque Moroccan Zelig tile below from Mosaic Del Sur in same color as square tile

kitchen style is a more fussy than my desired look.

Do I play it safe go square or risk it with arabesque? What are your thoughts?

Some items are confirmed to help you vote.

Extra thick honed marble counter tops with painted cabinets.

Open shelves made out of reclaimed wood or marble with steel brackets. The shelves will hang in front of the tile which extends from ceiling to counter.
