I like Carelton Mist the most too :)

With what other colour will you marry it? I'd put grey ;)

Ok, I'll make couple of combinations that I like. More "hot"-coloured and more "cold"-coloured. ;)

Goldfinch or mist. The second one looks the color of baby shit and the bottom one is yucky!

Have fun, hon, I love to redecorate.

So one combo can be something like: Sweet Rosy Brown https://www.benjaminmoore-colorsamples.com/benmoore/BMSELITM.pgm?task=itmqty&item=BM90104

the paint store has tons of other colors to choose from but the webpage only has a few listed so I just picked out the ones I liked from there.

I think the sweet rosy brown is too dark. My kitchen is oriented North/South so I don't get morning or afternoon sunlight.

You can chose something more light from the samples, the "sweet rosy brown" is in the second coloumn.

This combination is very nice for places that have a very clean style. I have no idea what kind of furniture do you have in the kitchen and also, do you have stones, or wood or.. ;) You can also choose one more colour, although it can be dangerous, you know.. doing too much ;) and use the sweet rosy brown only for small bits of the room, where you want to put an accent to a wall or something like that.

What a nice job :hearts:

My cabinets are white and I have sort of tan colored granite counter tops if that helps. The appliances are stainless steel. I odn't really have any other furniture in there.

Counter tops are like this but a little lighter and not so many black flecks.

Ouch that's difficult, then go for white, there are some nice white colours, and Castleton Mist. Other colours can be used just as a touch here and there.

Well, I gave you some combos, I am too lazy to think for new ones. Good luck in your choices :wavey:

I want to get granite countertops. I have dated 1950s piece of shit kitchen, where everything works, but it's old and hideous. I want to redo it, but I want to do a Rolls-Royce job, so I never feel I have enough money to do it "right," so it always stays the same.

Btw, the trend around here is polished concrete in white or grey. It can be done to look like a granite.

you could do it in small steps so the cost doesn't hit you all at once.
