  • Actually you could probably go with just about anything, but for some reason, a green pops into my mind.

  • I was thinking a warm color for the cabinets, and fairly light so the counters don't pop too much (no insult meant, they're just kind of ho-hum.) A warm green (light olive, maybe) on the cabinets, and a soft (not too red) terracotta, or maybe mocha on the walls. Or maybe vice versa, a mocha/soft terra cotta on the cabinets and an olive tone for the walls.

  • I just painted my kitchen cabinets BLACK, I have tan walls, with a black colonial painted stencil along the top edge, white trim/doors, and ivory countertops--they look amazing clean, neat and modern! :o) I chose black and white toile curtains and accessories and added sage green silk floral arrangements, berries, and willow baskets for a soft "earthy" splash of color.

    The kitchen is the largest room in our home and is literally the center room with 7 doorways/openings in and out! All of my other rooms on the main floor abut it, so I needed a neutral color wall and cabinet otherwise it would have looked too busy!

    When it comes to painting cabinets...take them all down, and take your time painting them--it's a LONG process, but if done right, they look amazing! Rehang with new pulls and hinges.
