We renovated our kitchen, finished May 2018, and then had a massive water leak on second floor and kitchen ruined, now gutted :(

We are doing a soft white cabinet on perimeter with a "smoke" grey island. Island is a darker gray, but to me looks dark grey/blue. I like the idea of a wood top island - and like the reclaimed look of wood, like wormy chestnut. Thinking of a white look quartz on perimeter tops. We previously had a white quartz (Brittanica) with large gray veining on perimeter and island and I felt like kitchen felt "cold." Any advice???What type of wood for island to get that reclaimed look and warm up the space? We have medium brown wood floors. I guess because island color will be dark then I should go with a lighter wood top - don't like red tones. Any help appreciated!
