Help me find coordinating quartz countertop please!

We are building a house and looking for a quartz countertop to go with our backsplash and cabinets. Our cabinets are an off-white (but not too off-white), and this photo is the backsplash we are doing, but in a hexagon pattern. Our accent colors are going to be a lot of the green/recycled glass look, and the floors are a rustic darker-brown wood. I have my eye on the coswell cream from Cambria, but would really, really love to have something with more of a marble with more movement. I'm not happy with any of Cambria's colors along that look, because I want something that's warmer than the stark white they have (doesn't look good with cabinets). Any suggestions, either in photos, names or just brands I could look into? Thank you so much in advance!!

RE: Help me find coordinating quartz countertop please!

Well, I just spent hours looking at Cambria, Caesarstone and Silestone samples. I think Cambria Torquay looks great on a large sample piece in case you haven't seen a larger sample yet - until today I had only seen photos on line and a small sample. It is on the cool side, though. Cambria Newport is warmer but has only a very subtle pattern.

One of your best bets in the Caesarstone line would be Misty Carrera - a friend of mine has it and I love the color, but sometimes I look at it and think the patterning is a little off. I think you might also look at Caesarstone Pebble which like the Misty Carrera comes polished and honed. Although it's gray, it's a warm gray and it looks fabulous with off white cabinets and with dark wood.

In the Silestone line you might look at Vortium. I liked the smaller sample of it a lot -but the larger piece not as much.....

Thank you so much for taking the time to check these out with me MarinaGal! I appreciate so much all of your research and suggestions! It's interesting, because I find that I'm not really a fan of granite and all of the black in it, I don't want the upkeep and down-sides of marble, and I'm not a huge fan of the color options in the more movement-looking quartz. I think it's just the color scheme that we're going with. Anyone else have any ideas for our scheme? I'll definitely look into the ones above MarinaGal! Thanks again!
