Thoughts on backsplash colors

We will very likely get these cream cabinets for our kitchen. I know off white/cream cabinets are tricky to work with color wise. Our suggested colors per the paint designer we had come to the house are: kitchen walls BM Edgecomb Gray, it’s kind of an oatmeal color (sample painted on wall here), trim the same as cabinets. Dining room (open to kitchen) which has chair rail; upper part BM Newburyport (the blue color here) and the same cream color as the cabinets on the lower wall. Our lighting is going to be updated but with that in mind… do these colors look good together? Our kitchen gets no real direct sunlight but does have two large windows and is not dark, dining room gets afternoon light with another large window. I’m nervous to lock in the cabinets knowing a backsplash might be hard, right? At this time counters are leaning towards honed black with some very light cream veins but minimal and mostly black. I do actually like the cabinets I’m just trying not to make a mistake! House is a typical New England colonial from the 60s. So, any thoughts on backsplash being difficult with these color combos? I know that part really comes in after installation but I want to at least consider it now. Wood floors are also being refinished so if you have a color suggestion with these options please share.
