My daughter has Terra Cotta colored tile floors. What color do you suggest for the cabinetry and countertop in laminate?

Ecrue or a Soft yellow-ish white.

If she'd prefer it to be a little darker, maybe go with a natural wood.

The first color that comes to mind is green, or anything Southwestern-themed.

Creamy white cabinets would work. As for the counter top, it would depend on the type you choose. A granite type material that has specks of the terra cotta, creamy white and black would look quite stunning. Good Luck

Creamy white cabinets would work well.

As for the counter top, it would depend on what kind you are getting > laminate , granite, > I would suggest a "speckled" design, incorporating the terra cotta, creamy white and black. I think it would look quite stunning.

Use a 50/50 paint, water wash. Try it on the inside of a door or the underside of a drawer. Terra Cotta is reddish. Green is a complementary color. It's also orangish...blue is it's complement. You could use Teal. A blue jean wash would look great. To really make a statement, white wash the cabinets first, let it dry...then add the color wash. I've seen this in a decorating magazine...looks great! Take a pix, I'd love to see it! Good luck! Have fun!
