I have light sky blue countertops, honey oak cabinets, and light beige colored tile. I have a neutral/beigey colored wallpaper, it's textured and is very decent. There had been fruity paper below it and I took it off, so I was thinking of doing a coco colored wall with a chair rail.
I also have a color block rug under my table with different colors in it. But I am wondering if I take down the paper, what color to paint the walls. I also am looking to purchase a new kitchen table, what color would look best with each decor? Would a black one be OK, or one with a oak top and black legs? Help.

How old are your kitchen table and chairs? The condition of it looks great, if I were you I wouldn't buy a new one. The furniture that they are making now is junk.
Your kitchen floor looks identical to the one that we had installed before we sold our 3-bedroom house.
If you must have a rug under your table it should be a bit larger. At least where the legs of the chairs sit on it. All the wood seems to match. I wouldn't change that. The black top table sounds nice too, but it will show all the stains and food "drippings"! from experience.
I have basically the same cabinets. I went with it instead of against it. I bought a "peanut butter like" color for the walls, and 2 shades lighter for the trim. Wal-Mart brand "Harvest Spice" #94191 for the walls and "Praline" # 93191 for the trim. I used a "forest" theme for my decorating items. Since you have a blue counter top you could use blue decorating items.
I think that would look nice in your kitchen, plus these colors hide dirt better than white. Good Luck!

I have just bought a house and the kitchen has oak cabinets with a beige counter top and light blue tiles on the floor. The walls are a navy blue, but I find it too dark, and would like to go more towards a warmer color. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

An apricot or peachy shade would tie all those colors together. (09/05/2007)
Do you know how to sponge paint? It's very easy. Cover the dark blue with a few coats of a light blue like the floor tiles, and then sponge paint with a light beige and a little of the light blue. Sponge painting really looks great. The oak cabinets are the best feature and I think the lighter color paint will really make them stand out and look very nice. Just a thought. (09/06/2007)
I would use a very light blue to tie the walls and floor together. Either that or a creamy beige that would go with the counter tops. (09/08/2007)
