1920s kitchen: Need help with counter top colors!!

We are remodeling our 1920s kitchen. We need HELP deciding what color to use for counter tops and like the idea of granite. Any ideas??

We have settled on white mission style painted cabinets. The floors are oak. We have just added a white refrigerator and gas range. Leaning towards a stainless apron-style sink. White subway tile back splash. The hanging light fixtures over sink and nook are antique brass, and the Tiffany-style ceiling light fixture includes colors of browns, blues, golds and creams. We want to paint the kitchen walls white. Although our range is 'modern' we LOVE the idea of keeping the kitchen more 'period' style.

Please see photos below for room layout. Start with the kitchen sink and move clock-wise around the room. Nook is at the end of the counter. Then back door entry and gas range. To the right of the portable dishwasher is the refrigerator. Next to frig is the opening to dining room and you are back to sink counter!

We plan to add upper and lower cabinets to the right and left of the range and install built-in dishwasher to the right of the sink. Both pieces of furniture by the back door will be gone and the floor will be redone in oak. I hope this helps! Thanks for any comments.
