Granite countertops colorful. Underlying color cream. I want cream subway tile. Husband wants small multi glass with colors of granite in it.

Love this granite. It is a busy, strong granite, so I would not put anything on backsplash that would fight with it. Not sure what type of cabinets you have, or what your ultimate overall style is, but I would use a satin finish natural stone, possibly a 4" x 4" square or a diamond shaped tile in a simple pattern. Hope that helps!

Your granite has some great movement in it! If you are really leaning towards the subway tile I would consider a tile with color that compliments your granite and cabinets. The cream (based on the photo) doesn't have the pop that a backsplash can bring to kitchens. If you are open to another option, based on not seeing your cabinet color and style I would recommend a natural stone in a 12 x 12 or 13 x 13 size and laying it on a diagonal. And with that layout you could select a decorative tile to place every few feet in the diagonal. See photo attached!

Most definitely subway tile. Everything else is totally trendy. http://www.mariakillam.com/2011/08/the-best-backsplash-tile-for-your-kitchen.html/

I think you should pick up one of the darker colors of the granite for the backsplash, instead of cream.

Another vote for a simple subway tile backsplash. Those high-contrast glass mosaic tiles will be too busy for your busy granite, and they will "date" the kitchen much faster than a simpler, more timeless backsplash. Did you say the cabinets were also a cream color? It can be a nice effect to have the backsplash a continuation of the cabinet shade, making the granite stand out as your focal point. But you could pick any of the light to medium shades from the granite for the backsplash and it will look good.

Quiet subway tile is the best choice.
