    Are you referring to the brand of paint or paint colors?

    I'm talking about paint color. With light raspberry counters and grey stone floor. I also have white trim right now but that can be changed if I need to. Color wheel is showing me green opposite the raspberry.

    Although the color wheel is correct on greens, I personally would not paint the kitchen green. Maybe a very make gray,however since gray can play green I would redommend getting color samples and do a test before you paint. Home Depot actually sells a removable paper for testing.

    My local Sherwin Williams gave me the whole fan book to take home to match my colors. I would go with a grey with some raspberry undertones or a grey that would complement both the counters and your grey floor. There are so many shades of grey with undertones from charcoals, greens, blues, purples, pinks and yellowish undertones. Since you can't take your counters with you to the paint store either see if you can get a chip book or go to the paint store and get as many grey paint chip samples that you think may work. As soon as you get them home you'll be able to weed out the ones that aren't close to what you want. When you fine a few you like tape them to the wall near your counter for a few days to see what you think. If your sample strip has more than one color on it, cover the colors you don't want to show with a piece of white paper. That's an old tip from my dad who was a painter. If you don't cover the colors you aren't leaning toward you won't get a true feel for the color you want. Your eyes will pick up some the the other colors when looking at it.
