If your looking for warm colors you should consider either painting just the top or bottom cabinets! If you don't to go down that route a grey would be nice, get a swatch from the paint company of your choice as there are many different shades of grey

It sounds that you know what your going to do. You just haven't committed to a color. Pick one you love and trust your instincts. They sound like they are spot on at this point.

Hi there. Fun project ahead. Two paint colors I'd suggest would be : Benj Moore Wedgewood grey...it'sa beautiful blue/grey that would look really fresh in there. Or, Valspar Au Lait Ole'... a warm mid-tone creamy brown that really makes white POP. Either way, I'd definitely replace the current trim and paint it white, or just paint what,s there white.

I decided to go bold in my little kitchen. With so little wall and white cabinets I thought it could go red. Because of the existing floors and countertops I chose a brick red. Therefore, my advice is to go as bold as you dare, whether its a deep blue or dark charcoal. I'm attaching a pic of my "bold" statement.

If you're doing light stained bead board I'd got grey on the walls, blue will be a bit to country bumpkin. Love the Stonington Grey! I'd add a couple built in shelves above the stove vent to finish that off.
