We have a similar color situation, and just finished remodeling our kitchen/living area. The contractor suggested that we go with a Burnt White color. We have a kiwi green granite top, red oak hardwood flooring, and a buttercream color of paint on the walls. The burnt white looks awesome.
I have cream tile on my floors, black antique granite on my butcher block with a cream base. My appliances are stainless, I also have an antique black kitchen table and caramel, black, and cream granite around the kitchen. What color should I use to paint the cupboards?
Black would make sense, but if I change my tile floor (which is old) black would be too dark. My gut tells me cream. Thoughts? What about hardware on cream? Also, can you paint the hinges instead of taking them off?

Yes red, unless you have a small kitchen in which case red cupboards might be overpowering. Or caramel or yellow. Definitely no more black. I've tried painting hinges, found the paint inclined to 'blob' and drip off but perhaps I wasn't careful enough!
