    How about a DIY finish that incorporates the look of copper with a patina maybe sponge on or dry brush the colors using a rust orange, burnt brown and teal or turquoise, you could work it until it is just right!!

    What about a color to brighten the space up a little? Use paint chips by holding them up to other stuff in the room to determine which color would work best but that decision is up to you. What colors do you like? You want it to reflect your personality.

    I'd suggest a greenish yellow. That would bring the gold hue of your wooden cupboards out, and go well with copper and pennies. It will also bring light to the kitchen.

      Yes, I've seen this many times while scrolling for ideas. This and teal/green/blue... and that's the direction I'm leaning. I love rich, dark colors but I have to be careful because I also need to make a choice that will be forgiving to imperfect walls. : )

    i think a deep blue could look cool or a charcoal gray, but I'd buy the smallest can you can of several colored and paint a strip on the wall and leave it for a few days until you know which color you love!!! We've done this before and it helps so much and worth the small cost. We paid $5 per small container and then we got $5 off each gallon we bought later. We went to an Ace Hardware

    Since you've already got a couple of colors already, I would either paint the backsplash area the same green as the top of the wall OR a

    i used a very pale yellow in my family room with my oranges, coppers and browns. It was also a metallic yellow I got from Lowe's. Not necessary to add the metallic. Mine was just a lower level on a tri-level so the paint added just a tiny bit more reflection and light.

    I like the minty green above the window. I’d continue that above the counter, maybe in a plain tile. It would brighten the room, which is wonderful but rather dark. (I love be the pennies!)

    I personally think painting your cupboards white washed would brighten up the kitchen being there a lot of dark tones and be sure to add new hardware, adding Roman shades to the windows, then adding a round rug under the table in a floral color then paint the walls a mustard yellow tone will tie everything together. Here’s a few photos of my ideas along with over the cabine decorating.

    Make a list of colors you like and pick from that don't paint your wall a certain color just because someone said to. What works in your home?
