Color advice for our orange/red quartz kitchen

Bought a house with muted orange/red quartz kitchen counters, light natural cupboards, tan paint. What accent color should I bring in with accessories and a painted shelf?

    I'm not a decorator but what about a deep yellow, like a Midwestern yellow.

    A Blue Green would look nice with your counters

    I would like an ocean blue. This kitchen should look very stylish. I hope you enjoy it for years. 😇

    I've read that when you want a complementary color you should choose the color (s) that is/are the complete opposite on the color wheel. In your situation (if you choose to go this route!) the chart indicates blue-green or anything in the blue or green family. But if you're a rule breaker (LOL) I agree with Chubby58. A muted yellow would look gorgeous. Brb... I just looked online and you can (as per the color wheel rules he, he) you can use three colors in a row to have a cohesive color scheme. Have fun with it. I would love to see what you decide!

    I think a clear Aqua. Already too much in red/Orange family.

    I would go teal. Something in blue green. Would love some pictures.

    I would buy samples of several shades of yellow, blue, & green. Paint half a poster board sheet with all the samples & let them dry. Pin or prop them up along the counter top. Step back as far as you can, squint your eyes, & "see" which combination appeals to you. Good luck!

    Not to be redundant but probably something in the blue range
    Maybe a cobalt or turquoise or an olive green but that would be too 70's for myself lol
    Make sure to post a pic!

    If you like the orange and red, add hot pink! If you want to cool them down add taupe and turquoise.
