Question Grout for Carrera Marble

Hello - I'm trying to decide on the right grout color for 12x12 Carrera marble tiles. Do folks usually use white? Someone recommended a grayish color, but I'd like whatever will look the most classic/traditional - so you notice the marble and not the grout.

Hi May, white looks nice but only for about a day. It just gets so dirty so fast.
I always recommend the lightest shade of gray you can find. It will let the tile be the feature and bring out some of the veining.
