It needs some color and most anything will go with what you have. Maybe terra cotta or sage green?

If you are selling the house then I would go with a nice neutral color. Bright colors are nice but not everyone loves them and if you have a "Blank slate" so to speak people can see themselves in the house better, any warm neutral color, like a beige or desert tan would look good-as long as it's in the same tone as your beige counters.

Hm, You could do many things. Butter cream, (look at a tub of butter), you could go in the golds to a pale yellow. I think that maybe you need something not so bland, though. How about a faded or muted rust or pumpkin orange? a celery green would be a more neutral selection. sky blue, although some agents will tell you that pretty much is too personal a choice. Orange, red, and golds are said to be 'energy' colours. Blues and greens are soothing. Good luck.

Red will stimulate the appetite. It is a good color for kitchens and dining rooms. You could do a two-tone look so it's not overpowering. Red on the bottom, beige on top. You could add a cheap white chair rail to really add value.

Or put red (or whatever color you decide) above the counter, under the cabinets for a little punch of color and do a more neutral color on the main part of the wall.

A nice cheerful red with maybe black handles on cabinets.

Just make sure the red is not too dark.

Think of a chef dressed in white, black and red.

Or you could go "french country" and do yellow with blue accents.

Good luck!!

Hi! If you're selling you need to stay with neutrals. However, with what you describe going on in your kitchen, you need some color. I would recommend a sage green. It is a "new" neutral and it will allow some contrast between the colors you already have. It will look great!
