How do I design a wall unit in my kitchen/dining room?

We remodeled our kitchen few years ago. We opened kitchen and dining room. I placed all new cabinets in kitchen area. We moved dining room table to back porch- new sunroom. Now I have a large open area in the old dining room section and it just looks too bare and plain. I have been to kitchen remodelers and they have tried to give me ideas for a hutch which will cover entire wall. Not loving any of the designs yet. My cabinets are dark- rich cherry and the remodelers want to do something with white washed finish. They are trying to incorporate cherry wood into the shelving. Just not sure that this "large white piece of furniture will look ok?"

    What about instead of white washed white, you use a different color all together... like your favorite color or accent color.

    I did include a picture of dark cabinets with a white-washed kitchen island so you can see the color combo together and I do think they look good together.

    Thank you for the pictures. This was very helpful. Do you recommend that I have a full size hutch built to cover entire wall? I like green!! Ty Kim
