What Should Replace the '80s Tile Counter in Our Apartment's Kitchen?

Good Questions

Q: We live in an apartment and have the opportunity to get a partial remodel on our countertop. Our kitchen counter is 2" white tile with white grout, and we want to make a decision on what color the countertop (with a lip for bar seating) should be.

Our cabinets are painted Behr's "English Breakfast," and the rest of our interior is warm browns and greens (although we will be repainting the entire place in March). We will be repainting the cabinets and putting new handles on but wanted to decide on a countertop first. My instinct is to go with larger tiles in a marbled brown, but would love some input.
