What paint colors (for walls) go with Imperial red Granite Countertop and white cabinets with a pink undertone

nicejuiceFebruary 11, 2013
Tired of my pale yellow walls and need a paint color to go with this countertop and cabinets - they are a custom paint mix that is white with a pink undertone. The backsplash is plain white tile and the floors are a light maple wood. Appliances are stainless steel The kitchen does open up into the dining/living room which is painted a caramel color.

I love Imperial Red Granite, and your tile is gorgeous. An accent wall in black would be a dramatic look, if that's your style. A navy blue might be nice if you don't mind a bit of red, white, and blue effect. How about an aubergine?

A warm cinnamon color or a brown with a red hue might work as well. Depends on the direction you want to take the room. If you didn't want to stray too far from the previous wall color, then a rich ocher / deep, mustard yellow/gold might be a cool look as well.

I used BM CC400, 410 and 420 on various walls throughout my kitchen, dining room and living room. I've had this for 14 years now (repainted two years ago using the same colours) and have never tired of the colours. They're warm, sunny without being yellow, and change as the light from the sun travels around the house. We do have lots of windows which makes a difference. I've used various shades of red as an accent colour and it's beautiful.

Deep red and teal are beautiful together.

I think a pretty orange would look great. It looks as if this may be an underton color in your stones.

Consider a warm earthy grey for the walls.
