My townhouse kitchen was "remuddled" for market and I lived with it long enough!

This kitchen is large (13' X13') has great light and cheap cabinets with a bad work flow. I am figuring out how to make it sing by knocking down the wall to the dining room, adding an island and getting new cabinets/counter tops etc. I need help with the color scheme- I want natural maple cabinets and vinyl flooring but I would also like to bring in greens and yellows. The images are of the kitchen as it is now. The final picture shows in the colors I would like to bring in. How do I do this without making it look like a raid on a flea market?

Are those hardwood floors in the kitchen? If so, why would you use vinyl?
I like the colors you chose. You can certainly work them in very tastefully.

We will have to replace the floor due to the wall tear down and the poor installation of the existing hardwood. I have had hardwood in my kitchens before and they scratch terribly so I am looking at vinyl.

I suggest painting a bolder green above cabinets and mellow yellow on the other wall. If the cabinets are going to be maple this is a nice contrast then you can accent in orange or blue. Opening up space to dining room is a great idea. I would keep the floors though. good luck
