Hi!

    We have the same and painted our Kitchen walls a light Tangerine colour, But I also like a Sand - or soft warm turquoise. (My accessories are Copper - Light shades etc}

    So many colors work with gray. The trouble is there are so many shades of it! It could have blue, green, brown undertones making it look either cool or warm. Once you determine the undertone it will narrow down your choices. May sound boring but I’m a big fan of good old white with gray. Benjamen Moore has a lovely warm white called Atrium White. It doesn’t look stark at all.

    Dark grey accent wall? Light grey or white, maybe a grey blue

    What colors are your kitchen accessories? Ex. Toaster, coffee maker ,containers. You can go with a pale yellow.

    I vote for a pale yellow wall. Search Pinterest for "pale yellow wall with gray cabinets."

    I would like the pale yellow, or a pale aqua would be pretty too.

    since you have warm undertones in the cabinet and granite, I’d go with a gray with warm, not cool, undertones. The leftmost paint sample you have on the first picture is a good match, tone-wise. You can try going to the lightest (or a lighter) color on the paint sample strip that that came from. the color should then change in intensity depending on how much light comes in.

    What about off white? It is light enough to be illuminating, warm enough to be inviting and color enough to be subtle and encouraging not stark and depressing.

    It will look like vanilla ice cream in color.

    Accents of red!

    You have so much gray/white/black going on you need a STRONG accent color for POP!
