I have a Smoky Mountain dark grey/blue paint in family room. I need to paint the kitchen which is separate room, but connected to family room. My kitchen has oak floors and cabinets (golden orange/yellow).
What paint color would you use? We tried a golden yellow, wow, too much. I was going to go with soft yellow and was told it would wash out the cabinets. What do you suggest?

Maybe a lighter shade of the same blue? (03/04/2010)
The blue grey is the color I would like to paint my living room after I get floors also. I love the colors together, the blue and the wood. I've seen a very subtle muted orange color paired with the blue, kind of like sunset on adobe clay, if you know what I mean. (03/04/2010)
Almond would be a great color to use. (03/04/2010)
A dark red/burgundy would be my choice. It would highlight the cabinets. (03/05/2010)
In peach (03/05/2010)
In green (03/05/2010)
In a softer yellow (03/05/2010)
I like the softer yellow. A kitchen needs to stand out so the softer yellow would be a sunny and cheery place to hang out to enjoy food with families and friends!
I also like the grey/blue in your family room. Good luck! (03/05/2010)
Green is beautiful. Peach is nice, too. You can also try a very muted rust color. How about ivory? I am not a fan of red or white in most cases.
What about back splashes that are either tiled or metal? I have seen some that are very lovely. I am not sure of the cost, but it can be done tastefully.
Take your pics to a Lowe's or Home Depot store, or even to a tile and carpet store and see what they say. You can even visit those stores online and see what is there.
But, I still think green is the prettiest. You could do sky blue, but it is very tricky to pull off and not look too dated.
Good luck and post the final results! (03/14/2010)
