The Rivers Gold is much more interesting and rich.

What color is your floor? I think I like the first one better, seems to have more light color in it from what I can tell.

I like the Rivers Gold. More color variations that compliment the other materials in the room.

oh oh :) I can't choose..so I am a big big help! but I do notice one thing. The first choice has many horizontal lines that may conflict with your vertical lines already established by your cabinets..i wonder if this might be a problem?

The first one looks much more special than the second which is a little generic looking to me

What a gorgeous granite selection! The River Gold is such a unique stone--it will really be the star of your kitchen.

I do like Aggie Designs' antique pewter suggestion for hardware. Oil rubbed bronze would look fabulous as well.

Oil rubbed bronze will pull in the darker island and stand out nicely against the cabinets. Nickel will pull out the grey in the granite, contrast with the island nicely, and compliment stainless appliances, if that's what you're getting. Either of those would be beautiful. I like glass better in an all white kitchen with marble and glass front cabinets, more of a Victorian vibe.

whatever finish you decide to get, it's really the form that becomes more important because it's what you are going to be using every day. What is easiest to reach for while you are cooking? I wanted drawers and cabinets I could open with one finger :) because I always need something while I am working and my hands are covered in flour :)
