I like wood floors with white shaker cabinets. Light gray quartz or beige granite for countertops.

I like the look of marble with white shaker cabinets and a medium stained wood floor. And if you want to go in another direction--Ceasarstone's "Raven" looks great with white cabinetry too.

Marble is very elegant and desired for the kitchen but don't do it. It scratches easily and stains. It starts out beautiful but that just won't last. Look at what Barbra has suggested above. That stuff is almost indestructible.

Go with a medium warm brown on the wood floors...not too dark.

I like the idea of wood floors too. A nice wide plank would be nice, med/dark tone. If not wood, then a nice natural stone like slate perhaps. A darker countertop as well, but not black. I know granite is popular, but you could go with something less expensive. A nice slate-like tile or something. Works well as long as you seal the grout. I think a nice tarnished bronze or aged brass tap would look nice with the sink.

If you like the look of marble, try quartzite instead (not to be confused with man-made quartz). Quartzite is a natural stone that is actually harder than granite, but it tends to look similar to a marble.

Take a look at:
Super White (can also be called White American): http://pmirock.com/vLots.aspx?ID=985&z=Quartz
Taj Mahal: http://pmirock.com/vLots.aspx?ID=1048&z=Quartz
White Princess: http://pmirock.com/vLots.aspx?ID=983&z=Quartz
White Macaubas: http://pmirock.com/vLots.aspx?ID=897&z=Quartz

Attached are some photos of a kitchen that we did with White Macaubas quartzite. It complemented their Calacatta marble backsplash wonderfully!

As said above, marble is not recommended as a countertops for the kitchen area. White shaker cabinets can go with any kind of countertop. I prefer quartz because of the sold colors that are available and I would pick a darker color that ties in with your walls and contrasts with the cabinets. Are you open to solid red, blue, or even black? For the floors, are you thinking hard wood or tile again?

Looks like a great project.
If you are looking to open the kitchen up, I would consider possibly removing the stub wall that looks like is separating the kitchen and dining room and replace it with an island . You could then ditch the table in the kitchen and have tons more space A dark granite countertop and modern stainless appliances would do wonders.
I am not a fan of hardwood flooring in kitchens, as that is the one area of the house that tends to get items dropped on it. I would consider a new porcelain tile or natural stone for the floor and possibly add underfloor heating.

You bet, even the new LVP or LVT, however, I personally like tile better for your application.
