    A warm off white? Accents could be whatever you like.

    An opposite color will tone down the orange. Teal, blue, purple or green. Oak can be very orangey- I know your not asking but might consider toning the brightness of the cabinets with a paint, stain , pickle or wash of color. The lines and quality of your cabinets are nice. Where it may open many design options, it may not be possible.

    Shades of green are very easy to live with. Some of the teal tones and darker blues are quite nice too.

    A light blue, plum or mauve would look pretty. If you go with a yellow or cream, you're just going to enhance the yellow in the oak.

    Or you could paint the cabinets, since the floor looks like oak as well.

    • Stay away from the yellows. This will only increase the golden look. If you want to modernize a bit, you can use a greyish taupe or just a gray. It will go well with the brown of the cabinet and pull just the brown out of it and tone down the yellow gold. Also consider changing the handles or just simply spraying them with oil bronze paint or a nickel silver or something.

    You could try a light gray, or a manilla folder color which is not quite yellow, not quite cream. It goes with everything. Find a pillow or fabric that yo really like and take your colors from there. Pale grayish green is also good.

    it is a mix of greys/beige. The interior of my house is painted this color, I love it.

    Also be daring-spruce up those cabinets, if affordable!🙂
