Need help with wall color in kitchen... nothing works

I can't find the right color for my walls. Greyson look too blue and beige doesn't look like anything. I'm doing a carrera honed backsplash but can't find the right color to bring it all together. Any suggestions?

I would choose a soft color, like a light yellow, it has to be delicate but more colored than the one that you have... Because that's a complementary color of the violets and blues!
Good luck...

Here is a link to a Houzz search for you. It apprears that most are using some form of a cool white.

Is the paint on the cabinets Blue or is it just the photo and it is some kind of white?

I would use a very soft golden - about the color of a chamois.

What about choosing a very soft, subtle light gray? Try to pull a color from your Carrara backsplash.

I wanted to add something else... I've heard about 'glittered walls', you can do it yourself because It's very easy. It just needs paint (I would choose a gold color, as '
Simpkins & Associates, Inc.' said, great idea!) and some glitter. And It's cheap.
I'll attach a like to help you and an image of what I'm talking about...

Would like to see pictures of the rest of the kitchen please. And, maybe adjacent rooms.

I agree with the light grey suggestion. I think it will pull all the elements of your kitchen together from the carrara counter tops to the blue-grey cabinets. Check out Benjamin Moore's "Winter Soltice" # 1605.

Benjamin Moore 1584, pale smoke is a color similar to beach glass. It looks really nice with Carrara and dark floors, stainless steel and white, etc. what is the actual color on the refrigerator wall? You could also go one shade lighter with 1583, silver crest.

Find a white in the carrera marble that you like and use that. Bring in accessories or pictures for additional color.
