Hi! im still confused. tossing up between ice snow and osprey. our stone mason gave us some big samples and the ice snow looks warmer than the osprey? i always thought osprey is more creamier?
do u think ice snow will look warm against off white cabinets (colour parchment)? we are also going no handles, so the kitchen will be quite bare, thats why i thought ice snow instead of osprey? im just afraid it might be too stark?
i have uploaded thepics of the big samples, on the left is ice snow and right is osprey
which goes better against the parchment cabinetary??
what do u think? thank u

Firstly it's hard to see with the light that you have there. I'd like to see a better pic of the cabinet colours.
In regards to colour I like a bit of contrast between the benchtop and the cabinets, but that is just me. Really any of those pieces will work! It's what colour you choose. They are both safe.

It is totally a personal choice but they both look nice. My preference based on the pics there (and yes, better light would make it easier!), is the one on the left.

I like Osprey (completely biased though as that is what we have chosen). I think it has a bit more interest and warmth and I think it would tie in to your cabinet colour better than ice snow.

personally if your kitchen has no handles I would go with the one with a texture. Was not sure which one it is from your image but the one on the left would probably look better as there is a defined stone pattern .
I have parchment walls and my bench top is ceasarstone nougat and they go nicely together my cabinets are duropal white gloss.... see if you can get a bigger sample of the stone and see it in the natural light..
all the best
