Help w/ paint color for cherry cabinets & Venetian Gold Granite!

Hi all! I've seen a few posts on this, but I have a bit more of a specific questino.

My husband and I are buildnig a new townhome and we just picked out the granite and cabinet colors. We went with Venetian Gold for the granite and Legacy Cabinet's "Cabernet" stain, which looks like a cherry. I LOVE the 2 together and have seen lovely pictures of some kitchens on here wiht similar combinations. However, I'm having a really hard time picking the paint from the limited choices we were given. It will go throughout the whole house, but I want it to go really nicely with the kitchen from the get-go. If you go to the link provided, you can see the paint choices we have. I can't decide between: Simply Tan, Shell White and Pale Portabella. I'm worried Simply Tan might be too...tan...and neutral (read: boring), 'm also worried that Pale Portabella might be too dark for the entire house, and I think Shell White might be too light/yellowy.

What do you think? What do you think would make the kitchen look the best?

The shell white looks golden. I have this tone of paint with Cherry furniture in my living room and it looks fabulous. I don't know what your granite looks like, so I'm not sure how it would work. Good luck!

I've not seen Shell White in person, but if it is slight yellowing, it will look really, really nice. I have the same cab/granite combo in my masterbath. I tried going for the slight yellow, but it didn't turn out quite right.

If you use the Shell White, could you post pics when you are finished?

I will post pictures when it's all said and done. I still can't decide! I asked the builder if he knew of any model homes with any of the colors on the walls so I can see it in person. It's too hard to choose from just a swatch in a binder! I've attached a link of the approximate granite and cabinet colors if that would help anyone with their opinion! :)
