Any color you desire will work with white.

Agreed, almost any colour would work with white. Choose something bright, but not blinding. Soothing, but not to the point you are almost asleep at the dinner table.

With such bright bones, a lovely yellow, or maybe pumpkin, or sage, or even a lovely blue. How is the natural lighting? You could even go for a more bold colour such as orange. Gold also would look nice. I think, though, I'd stay away from red. That colour is used too often and rarely works. It would darken the room immediately, and make it look smaller. Do you have a lot of things on your counters? That also makes a room look small. You could also accent your kitchen with cabinet and drawer pulls. To have them blend in, buy clear or white with a small accent colour (maybe the colour of your walls). or have them stand out, buying the colour of your walls altogether, or maybe a silver, brushed nickel or antique brass. Little things add up. If your window(s) face east or west, consider hanging a small crystal ornament from either a curtain rod or somewhere the light would shine through it. My beloved Grams did that, and her kitchen would be so beautiful when the rainbows would come in. Pick your favourite colour, (say blue) and go different shades from pale sky blue, to traditional blue, or robin's egg blue, see what you like. I hope you post a pic of the results. Good luck

If you were wearing a white shirt or white pants, what would you wear with it? Jeans? Khakis? Pink? Green? Yellow? Orange? Black? it all depends on your mood, right? Well it's the same with decor. Do you want to be bold or soft? Contemporary or country? You can do anything you want with white. Have fun!
