If I have green walls and grey cabinets in the kitchen and multicolor countertops, what color window treatments would work? The countertop has black, grey, gold or tan, and white.
I'd go with gold if you wanted to make it pop, but white if you wanted to keep it toned down.
I would go with a green and gray print. Make sure the green and gray are in the same color family as the colors you have in the kitchen already.
I really think white would be your best bet. You have so much color in your kitchen already that trying to pick out one particular color would not help the overall color scheme and white will go with anything.
Try to go with a "flat" white rather than a sheen, you do not want to be in competition with the other colors.
Color curtain advice.
You go with white, tan, camel, pink, and light or medium gray they all go with green.
I personally would use pink to add a pop of colour.
Personally, I like the idea of adding a light chiffon yellow to the mix. This wouldn't actually be a gold color or even a white color. It would be a very light yellow or lemon color to pull all the colors into one place.
On the other hand, if you just wanted to really tie the kitchen together , then it's better to use white. This is a universal color that can be used with any color that is in your kitchen.
I would go with a stripe or other print that has a darker shade of the color you want to stand out the most. Like say your green...find something with a darker shade of Green, deep Yellow, Black or Charcoal Grey, Orange, White, and maybe a rich pink or red.
I have a kitchen with black and taupe granite countertops. The room is painted taupe and the cabinets are medium oak. There is a tan backsplash. I need to know what color window treatments would look best with these colors.

Maybe a cream, or ecru, with black trim-or black with cream/ecru trim? If you sew you could do this yourself and really have fantastic custom curtains.
Depending on your actual window, and any privacy needs, you could use a cream or taupe mini-blind and black topper (valance); if the window isn't too narrow you could use swags on either side.
Most kitchens look 'right' with cafe style curtains, valance, and swags, but again, it depends on your window size, privacy needs, and finally, the style of your kitchen. If you have a contemporary or ultra modern kitchen, swags might just be too twee to have to look at every day, although the cafe and topper look can be streamlined to be quite modern-use tabs instead of a gathered casing.
But if your kitchen is the slightest bit traditional or country, you could even use black in a gingham, it's a surprisingly nice look if not over done.
I think I would go with something in the green family maybe a sage color. You can also use that color with some accent pieces such as pot holders, dish towels, placemats, small kitchen mat etc. It always looks nice to add a 3rd color in there. Hope this helps.
