I have a black island with Giallo Santa Cecilia on it, we are installing maple cabinets with a antique glaze on them...now that the bottoms are in my husband doesn't seem to think that putting the same granite color is going to work...any ideas of what colors would work...he wants to stay with granite.

To me it appears that the Giallo, if it looks like this picture at address below is the perfect fchoice for the counters as well as it marries the island and the counters together. If you go too many different directions with your finishes and their respective colors, it will not be cohesive and will leave you very little latitude into the future with what you can bring in as accent colors etc, as trends change.

So you wouldn't go with a darker less busy piece of granite on the lighter cabinets??

Most Giallo has black, creme, some gold and sometimes a bit of a salmon color in it. If your runs in that color direction then I would say you are fine keeping it the same on the island and on the maple cabinets. The black ties the island cabinets in and the gold ties the maple perimeter cabinets in.
