What color should I paint walls and trim? Help - not color savvy!

by Denise Bury

My cabinets are a light oak. Tile on floor is beige white and light brown. Countertops are beige gold with black flecks in them. What color should I paint walls and trim. By the way my kitchen and dining room are together.
Thank you,
Denise

My answer:
Because your overall colors are beige and gold, I'd go with a soft green for walls and white trim. The green should be one that has brown tones in it (rather than blue tones). The trim can be more of an antique white rather than bright white, to blend with the white in the floor tiles.

Another option for walls might be a soft peach color. Or if green or peach doesn't work for you, perhaps an antique white on walls and trim will look best.

Bring home color samples from the paint store to look at in different lights to see how the colors work with your existing kitchen colors.

Keep a notebook or scrapbook of notes, clippings and ideas.

Kitchen magazines are expensive - look through them in the grocery checkout line. If you see pix of a kitchen you really like, buy that magazine.

Stop in at home centers and pick up any free cabinet manufacturers' catalogs.
