Seeking suggestions for paint colors for kitchen cabinets/walls
I want to paint our kitchen cabinets/walls, but have a dilemma. The ceilings are wood beams stained a medium cherry/brown - fairly dark overall. Currently the cabinets are a dark wood as well. One wall is brick (which previous owners artistically painted w/a little black and white to look 'rustic'.) One of the walls is wood panels stained a medium brown. The hall and entry that feed off of the kitchen are of the same wood beams. An alcove we use as our 'dining room' is the only paintable walls and they are currently beige. My island is red/grey and all my kitchen accessories that we brought from our previous home are red/black/silver. We live in the mountains so I want a cabin/rustic feel. I originally thought I'd paint the cabinets cream with a brown antique glaze but with all the red/black, not sure that would work. Now I'm considering grey cabinets w/black antique glaze but fear that will be too 'modern'. I thought I'd do the alcove in a light grey, but again fear a modern feel. Any suggestions/advice would be most appreciated. I'm NOT an interior decorator at all. I get ideas, but have a difficult time bringing them to fruition in an aesthetic manner. :-) One question I had: could I do the cream cabinets and still get away with the grey/red walls/counters and black/red dishes.
