HI all, I'm new to this forum but what a great bunch of ideas and advice!!

I'm renovating a house. Here are my choices for the kitchen:

The concrete countertop will have recycled glass chunks - I can't find the right color online but I'm hoping it wil be a browny grey with blue/green tones of glass - I've been told I can make it whatever color I want.

Another idea - Would black cabinets be too stark?

I'd love your opinions on Paint color - I'd like to keep this a sort of cool bluish grey type of look. I have done browns and I'm tired of it!!

Appliances are stainless steel and our style is modern. (cabinets will be plain front). 10 ft celiings too - so I am thinking a color on the ceiling andnot just white. What about trim - I planned for white but I'm open to Anything!!

I am nervous about selecting paint as this is the first time I have not gotten advice from a professional decorator IRL.

Many thanks in advance for your input!!
