I'm feeling WHITE WHITE WHITE!

My parents and I have agreed on most of the finishes in their new kitchen, but there's still a few choices to make.  One things for sure- the majority of the kitchen will be white.  Here are a few pictures in our inspiration file:

Wood floors+white cabinetry...
We decided on a darker wood flooring, close to this color:

The crisp white cabinetry juxtaposed with dark wood creates a clean, crisp impact.
Here is the princess white quartzite we decided on for the counters last week:


  One thing we are still debating is the stove backsplash.  You can never go wrong with glossy white subway tiles:

But I think marble or quartzite as a backsplash would create a more luxurious feel:

What's your vote?

My mom loves copper and purchased an antique copper sink, so I thought adding copper pendant lighting over the island would tie in well.  Here are the pendants we went with:


Now I am deciding between silver pulls or black pulls on the cabinets and drawers.  
Here's a good example of black knobs with white cabinetry and copper pendants.  The black works well here, but I think it's because it ties in well with the black island and bar stools.

I think I'm leaning more towards silver pulls, like in this kitchen published in Traditional Home a few years ago.  It works with the copper pendants and white cabinetry.  Do you agree?

What do you think?  I'd love to hear your opinion and any thoughts you have on the entire scheme.  I hope you like it as much as me!
