Should I go the two toned route.....?

We are designing a fridge surround. The P.O. had his fridge in a back hall off the kitchen. We have moved it into the kitchen. Our kitchen is L shaped, and the fridge now sits on a wall opposite the long part of the L. It is between the entry to the DR and the basement door. The entire space will be filled once we have the surround with side pantry. Here's my question. As I was envisioning what it would look like last night, I realized that the creamy white of the cabinet would be right next to the white basement door. I know it would be a bit unconventional, but how do you think a different color cabinet would look. I know people do two toned, but usually and island, or uppers one color, base another. Would it be too weird to have the fridge surround/pantry a different color? It is the only cabinet on that side....Many thanks.....

I have my uppers and lowers on the perimeter in white, an island in cherry and a wall of tall pantry cabinets surrounding my fridge on the third wall in blue. The blue is tied in with a liner in my splash and some blue in nearly every other room. Works for me. I think it really depends on details though. It could look like a lonely misfit. Post some photos and you can get some tips on how to make it work or whether you should even try.
