Gray Owl Cabinets - Kitchen wall color help!

We have to re-do our kitchen and I am hung up on the wall color. There isn't too much kitchen wall that shows but whether I go dark for contrast or a lighter contrast will make a big difference. The cabinets will be painted Benjamin Moore's Gray Owl. Granite countertops will be Monte Cristo, and the floor will be California Classics Mediterranean line- Monaco. We will be staining the island some type of darker gray stain but I still have to figure that out.

Below is the kitchen lay out and the material we will use. My original thought was to do a darker gray on the walls to really bring out the cabinet color but now I'm afraid it may be too dark for me. I want light and warmth and am afraid of the kitchen feeling too "cold". Does anyone have any paint color recommendations that may be a good compliment to these cabinets- something not too dark but enough for a contrast? I've been looking at Behr samples (most convenient).
