My kitchen has burgundy walls and winter white cupboards. I have a kitchen nook that needs to be recovered. I must keep in mind small grandchildren. I would appreciate some colors that I could choose from.

taupe, grey, or plum
Prints hide dirt the best. What about a print with some burgundy, white and other medium to dark colors? Or burgundy stripes? I have seen burgundy/white checked material too. If you don't want burgundy, what about blue, maybe royal blue or a blue print.
When using color, remember to use a color wheel. I am including a photo of one. Here is how it is used. Look straight across from the color that you have in your kitchen and chose a shade. Or you can do what is called a triangle.
Colors that are in the triangle go together. Or shades next to each other on either side look nice.
If you are looking for fabric, try the outdoor fabrics on the market. I they can hold up to weather, they can hold up to your grandchildren. Another thought is slip covering the seating so you can wash them.
I would suggest keeping it light since burgundy is a dark color. A room that is too dark will not make a happy cook. :)
A burgundy and white
checkered upholstery would look great.
I agree with perfume and powder (557)
Earth colors hide dirt and they are calming to people/children
A plaid of navy and some lighter color for contrast - camel, grey, taupe, or even winter white will not be too dull but will stand up to grandkids' spills. The slipcover idea is great if you are talking about nook cushions.
