I would like advice on what color to paint my kitchen. I have dark oak cabinets, brown counter tops, and black appliances. The current paint color is chili pepper red. I love it, but I am wondering if I should go lighter.

It might not be a bad idea to go lighter, maybe cream or buttery yellow. Then you could accessorize with red. (12/06/2007)
Sounds beautiful just the way it is. Some accessories in avocado green would give it a new look. (12/06/2007)
I think maybe a Terra Cotta color on the walls and some gold or nice shade of yellow for more accesssories or
Dark cabinets are the new style now so you should be able to find several ideas you like at www.hgtv.com. I just love that site.
This time of year there are many ideas about decorating for the holidays, but if you search you'll find what you want.
I think I'd go lighter. I saw someone mentioned using avocado green as an accent. I would do that. I have avocado tiles in the kitchen and with my dark cabinets it looks dated. Again, I think cream for the walls or another light color.
Best of luck.
