Painting a Kitchen With Mahogany Cabinets and Green Granite Countertops

Please help. I recently bought a condo. The kitchen is very small, but very nice. The cabinets are mahogany and the counter top is green granite, a beautiful light green with dark green waves of color and some rust or brown spots in it.

I am having such a difficult time choosing a color for the walls. There are places the paint will be next to the cabinets and on top of the granite. Can you please help me? I look forward to your reply. Thank you.

It sounds beautiful. I personally would go with a rust color on the walls to harmonize with the rust in the granite. I wouldn't go too dark with the paint as the cabinets are dark. Or a sage green to go with the green in the granite.

I would go with a shade or two darker than the countertop. It would add a nice background without taking all the attention!

Taupe - which is neutral and earthy. It will let the cabinets and counter shine without crowding or shouting above them.

Taupe is a mix of gray/olive/brown. Happy painting.

Don't go dark & blend your appliances also. google Valspar color charts
