Counter top color choice for "coastal" look / design?

We are moving into new home and will be changing out countertops.
Our style is a coastal look, little bit of shabby chic. Love the whites, light blues and greens, soft grays, etc.
any suggestions for countertop color for granite or maybe quartz?
We want to avoid black or very dark colors. Thanks

I suggest a recycled glass counter, either a bright blue/white or green/white. Like IceStone's Blue Sky or Geos's Juneau . Quartz counters maybe Cambria Bala Blue. Granite, maybe Blue Eyes, Green Galaxy or Iguana Green (similar to Lapland Green). Or Azul Blue

It seems that granite may seem too hard for the look that you're after, if that makes sense. If you were going to paint the cabinets, butcher block counters could be great, or Corian would be nice if the cabinets are staying as is. I really like the idea of the recycled glass.
