I need help with a new color on my kitchen walls!

Helen MoranFebruary 19, 2013
I have attached pictures of my kitchen and the wall colors that are bright yellow and a accent wall which is dark red (that I am tired of!) I took a picture of the paint chips that I am considering for my new wall color. i would like the new color to blend with my granite countertops which are a brown and tan color. My cabinets are a cherry color. What do you think about changing the color and why? I was thinking of going with neutral for the kitchen and actually my whole house. I would like to keep a different color for the accent wall just make it a darker color. Thanks for any help.

Hello Helen,

A bit of a challenge to see the color, but from my vantage point the upper left hand corner is the most intriguing. Deleting the yellow and the red would go a long way towards highlighting your lovely new countertops.

Best of luck,

Hi Helen...what is on the floor? material & colour? Are you wanting a light colour because you feel it is too dark? What is on the red wall? where does it lead and to what colour?

Helen, I think a neutral palette would be a refreshing change for you. Generally speaking, when working with an accent wall, your other walls should be a neutral so the accent wall is just that. When you opt for two paint colors that are equally bold and intense, you loose that effect. I'm afraid however that if you go to this to too neutral of a palette you will tire if it quickly. What about using a third sample in top row, and your base and then chose a slate/almost robins egg blue or something in that family as your accent wall? http://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW6490-timid-blue/ I like timid blue or even open air if you want to go a little darker.
And then a bright creamy white as the rest of your walls.
Giving you a pop of color but a toned down version that you can build a new look around. Good luck!

Helen! Nice and light and bright! The accent wall is lovely :) Nice job.... it's clean, fresh and not too yellow. Enjoy your 'new' space and have a great weekend,
