Absolutely ! great colors and love the wavy movements in both the accessories and rug design.

These objects' colors are a bit too subtle to act as accent pieces (look at your thrid photo; you can barely see these objects). Try to pick up the reddish brown or the strong lavender. Glass accents in a kitchen aren't very practical, so please think about using some other material. If this is for staging a house for sale, try a dark basket with rolled up towels in three colors from the rug.

Your space looks beautiful! I absolutely love your material choices, and that rug is stunning!

As far as these accessories are concerned, I have to agree with apple_pie_order. While beautiful, these pieces seem far too fragile for a kitchen countertop, especially right next to an outlet that one would access periodically. They would be much better suited to a dining area or bathroom. I am always a fan of functional accessories--bowl with fruit or towels, cooking utensil canister, cookie jar, etc. Take a look at some photos here on Houzz that accomplish this.

Single people/people without kids often have "fancies'....I say if you like it, keep it. In my house, they would last 1.2 seconds though...lol! They do match well...

Killer look. Love the subtle use of color. I say go for it.

Under a counter, you need a lot more pop as mentioned before. Those pieces would look great grouped together on the table, maybe sitting on top of a round sparkly placemat in the gray color of the granite.

i love the colors and textures you have already found. especially the woven seats and tactile rug. perhaps a professional photograph of the purple glass items & detailed (close-in) shots of the woven seats & rug would work better - the frame photos could lean against the backsplash for color?

Try eggplant. Really. Food in kitchen works. Glass bowl. Clear but basket weave.

I agree with all the comments...the colours are stunning together, but need a bit more depth. Once the decor on the table is gone (after X-mas) would move the trio to the table. Then go for some eggplant colours!

Last but not least: Good eye!
