Need Advice on Kitchen

last month

I have an open floor plan at our lake house that has a huge stacked stone fireplace (with beiges, grays). We want to keep the fireplace as is if we can make the room work with it, as is the same stone that is on the exterior of the house. Fairly recently we redid the kitchen which is right across from the fireplace, and it just doesn't look pulled together. Kitchen cabinets are SW Elephant Ear, countertops are white quartz, and walls are Agreeable Gray. The room is north facing so gets a ton of light that causes all of the colors in the room to look different throughout the day (notice how upper vs lower cabinets look as if they are different colors). I'm considering replacing the countertops with something that better compliments the fireplace. Have thought about a black honed granite but I'm just not sure that is the way to go. The backsplash definitely has to be replaced (it's a shiny taupe that looks awful in the sunlight). But I am open to any and all suggestions.
