    I believe in the lighter, the better, so I pick a color that I like, and lighten it up. Turquoise is a favorite also a teal blue. I pick the color and then cut the color with true white. An off white has yellow in it and can change the tint of the paint. You want to show off the food not the walls.

    do ya all recal the blue plate specials??..blue is said to decrease the appetite. Not a bad thing..apparently red encourages the appetite. I would go with what you like....your favorite color. Or some version of it.

    It depends on the tone you want. If you want it pastel, then add about 3/4 of a gal. of white in a larger size bucket to your gal. of paint, and adjust it from there. I usually go with smaller amounts to see if the tone is right. Don't waste a whole gallon of paint on an experiment!
