If you want a calm, sophisticated effect, a cheery yellow isn't what you want. Does a soft grey color appeal to you? not too much, just a touch here and there.
Maybe a light, cool shade of green that would enhance the blue tones and prevent an overuse of the blue (although I love blue and different shades of it together really are pretty). Or a very light lilac color paint might be nice; or deep lilac for some of the accessories for a little pop.
How about cream/yellow, something that goes with the tone of blue. You also could do a soft blue that is 2-3 shades lighter than the countertop.
A lighter shade of the blue in your countertop would look nice on the walls. Blue is a calming color and using different strengths of the same color is a tried and true practice. Accessories (towels, tissue, mats, seat covers, shower curtains, containers, cups, wastebaskets, hampers, etc.) could be in bright blues and yellows to add a little pep to the room.
How about tan and add accents in the same blue shade with perhaps a pop of another accenbt color? A yellow , pink, or rust shade.
