Old House Needs New Paint in Kitchen

I'm looking for suggestions on paint color for my kitchen. The house is 98 years old, the previous owner installed new natural colored wood cabinets (1/2 with glass fronts) and white high gloss 10" sq.ceramic floor tile. The counter top is a medium gray and the wood trim, 2 windows, French doors to another room and the back door (mostly glass) are all white. The appliances are white. The walls are blue - which I do not like. It gives it a "country feel". So what goes with lots of white, light cabinets, and non-descript counters? The kitchen is rectangular with no sitting area space.

Margaret, sounds like you've got a blank pallet with lots of neutrals. I would punch it up with some bold colors like red or something else in that family.

How about a light greeny color. I also love sage green. I plan on doing my kitchen a light greenish color with white cabinetry I plan on painting.

Something soft and warm like peach, apricot, or coral.

I'm leaning toward a nice sage green and maybe some red for accent. Look in mags. for ideas but you'll see loads of green right now.

This is surely the room you will spend a lot of time so: Choose your favorite color and use lots of it in various tones.

You could get away with a darker color like hunter green which would go great with the neutral colors you have. Or if you want something lighter a sage green. You could even sponge paint it to give it texture.

Cardinal red would be very nice. Fresh, crisp, and only "country" if you want it to be.

My daughter just did a deep red in her kitchen.. and I love it. With all your white, it would look super.
