That said- the house is currently painted a nice, 'safe', beige with some maroon accents. Beautiful yes, but I want to do something completely different.. Simply because I CAN.
The first pic is my master bath. I want to paint the walls a dark grey. I think it would look fab with the white tile/trim. However, I do not currently have plans of changing the cabinets, which are wood. Is this going to look ridiculous?
Same issue with the kitchen.. The previous owner has blue laminate counters (which I want to change, SOMEDAY), and a darker blue tile backsplash. IMO it does not mesh with the cabinet color, or the current wall color. What I want to change right now: I'm going with a wayyy lighter grey in the living spaces/kitchen/etc (with a smokey blue accent wall in living room)
So. Is going to a cooler nuetral color going to be painful to look at with the warm cabinet colors? A kitchen remodel is in my 5 year plan but not tomorrow.
Thanks fellow hometalkers :)

I have used the designer at my local Benjamin Moore paint store a lot recently to help me with
color choices. Her advice is free and has been invaluable! I also found some good ideas for color use on Design Seeds, a blog with nothing but color schemes. The main thing is to have fun making your new house YOURS!
AND painting those cabinets could be a perfect solution for you. I'm painting mine!
