    oh God, don't do white with those counter tops, you'll need sunglasses in the room. The rule of thumb is you keep the tone either dark or light vertically, and the opposite horizontally. So please don't do white

    You could do the island with that granite, with dark base cabinets, then do white cabinets in the other parts of the kitchen with a a darker contrasting granite---

    The style trend is to do white cabinets around the perimeter and a darker colored cabinet on the island
