What paint color would you recommend for our kitchen? Moving in next month and this green has to go!

It sure does! I hate when everyone says neutral ie beige/grey. Pick a bright color you like that add light to the kitchen. There most be a color in your life that is your favorite.

For something a little different, why not try Benjamin Moore VIOLETTA AF-615. It really complements your countertop and works well with the cabinetry. It's not quite as pink as the room photo, more like the swatch. Quite greyed down and warm.

Regardless of what Int. Int'l says about neutrals, I would select a gray to go with your cabinets and granite because gray works well with both.

Don't like the BM Violetta colour above - too pink. I agree with Carolyn.

I really appreciate you all taking time to help! I am painting the bedroom Benjamin Moore-Sparrow which is a gray. Maybe that would work?

It may work, but I would not use it just because you have it. Pick the best gray for the room.

I would paint the walls the background color of the granite which is also the color of the wash on the cabinets. You can add color with accessories.
