White kitchen: marbled or solid white counters if colorful backsplash?

Hi all,

I'm having decision fatigue and second guessing myself (which I hate!). I already have IKEA Axstad cabinets (white) installed (see photos below). I had decided on Caesarstone Frosty Carrina counters (a very lightly marbled white quartz), thinking they were subtle and would go with everything . I would like a colorful/patterned backsplash, but will take time to pick it out. My interim will be fun peel/stick wallpaper, like this:

Now I'm wondering if instead I should do Caesarstone Pure White (solid white quartz). I had originally ruled it out because I thought I needed a subtle pattern to break up the expanse of white (with white cabinets too). But now I'm second guessing myself - should I pick a solid white counter if I'm planning on a colorful/patterned backsplash? Or are both good choices? Help! I have to decide by Tuesday! As you can see, I have a very small galley kitchen.
