What's Going On: Household Changes

After last year's long, cold, and dark winter I decided I had had enough of the 30 year old black laminate countertops in my kitchen.  I decided to go with a lighter laminate as a kitchen update.  I hope to paint the cabinets.  I have been waffling between white and blue.  Below is a collage of inspiration pictures:

Here is my new countertop:

The project is not done.  The walls are still being worked on.  And I'm still waffling on color.  The picture below shows a few samples:

Your new countertop looks great, Dixie!! May I ask what edge did you get? Why not do white upper cabinets and blue lower cabinets?? I've seen kitchens with lighter uppers and darker lowers and they look really nice!!

The carpenter specified bullnose edge.

I've considered the two tone look. I have to prime it all, so will get a sense of what white will look like then.
