B&W molding: When baseboard trims converge

I might have the solution but I'm looking for some input.
I have some white baseboard trim that needs to transition to some dark wood cabinets. Every example I've seen online shows this molding meeting the cabinets at a 90 degree. I was thinking of some molding to separate the baseboard moldings but before I do, I figured I'd get some suggestions on how to make this look good. (see attached images).
NOTE: The molding for the cabinetes haven't been stained yet. I just put that there so you get an idea of the baseboard molding.

I'd stop the base board where it meets the cabinet and then use a smaller molding at the cabinet, maybe just stained shoe molding.

Looks like door stop moulding, not baseboard!

I agree, the baseboard stops at the end of the painted wall... it does not continue around the cabinetry. Base shoe moulding goes around the cabinets. Base shoe also goes in front of the baseboard if it is gappy or doesnt cover the edges of the floor.
