Should we paint crown molding that wraps around cabinets same color?

My wife and I are currently building a custom home.

We have crown molding painted in SW semi gloss alabaster that goes through out the entire home.

In the kitchen, the molding wraps around our hood mantle as shown in the picture. Our cabinets are obviously a different color, and we are trying to decide if keeping it as is would look best, or if we should consider painting the molding the same color as the cabinets in the circled area.

My wife and I think it would look best if painted the same color as the cabinets, but our concern is how the transition between colors would look in the corner. Are there any best practices in handling molding transitioning between two different colors?
