    I would use the largest wall as an accent color to break up the beige and follow on the other walls with a lighter shade. As for color choices your pallet is pretty natural so I would suggest going and picking color samples to test in your house with the lighting as paint colors play differently from on room to another and every one has different taste.

    You definitely need some color to break up the neutral colors. What other colors do you have in the rooms next to your kitchen? Do you have a color scheme in your kitchen accessories like in canisters, towels, etc.?

    a bold choice

    Wheat, butter creams are most recommended for kitchens. If you need more color, try leaning to an orange, or keep neutral and make color up with your accents. Also beware of some 'bold' accent wall color. It gets old quick.

    There is a new color called greyeige. It is a mixture of beige and grey. It seems to look different when the light changes. Very becoming.

    Light yellow? You can look and get yellow shade that suits you best. With a white wall and dark stained natural wood baseboards.

    •..that floor would look fantastic in 3 different natual shades(one having a tint of rust tone in it),& forming a sequence pattern of your own with staining then gloss sealing... Add some big pcture frames with the same colours around the room;keeping any art to your taste/look or even paint some of your own ideas//even oddly match the pattern done on the floor, though on 3 angels(thus having 3 large frames position evenly across the wall/s~ 2 on one, the other on the seperate wall).. cheap second hand frames can be found everywhere...a good stain paint of a solid natural tone would compliment beautifully... personally i would use a small jar of craft gold/bronze paint & do some small rectangles around the centre on frames, just for that pop... {Have any old lamps & one can paint the same pattern with gold on the lower base...just an extra idea which can make ugly plain black lamps look great.. some cheap though not looking, fabric of gold bronze flicks' would look fab covering the shades; all easy to do, including addig fabrics to shades as one only requires a hot glue gun• note only glue little amounts right at the edges & fold under bottom first, the top will require four slits cut equally spaced at an inch down, as this folds in & under some to make a nice neat finish, glue on those seems up and just over the top... One can pick up cheap basic lamps at any second hand store.. or new for around 5 dollars, not hard..

    Otherwise a basic wash of the walls with bi-carb & warm water, after that dries using organic coconut oil & clean cotton cloths, with circle movements then polish the walls in a thin layer... Not only will it look amazing, but it also stops a hell of a lot of dust, including keeping walls easy to wipe clean... * I think maintaining of cleaning walls as important so every spring have some exercise; though not vital every spring..... best of all you use no chemicals... one can even get organic stain paints,& not dear.

    Something to think about... i am a decor Artist by first trade, so i just saw this amazing look for that space... how about being really unique:)..... 3 very small cheap though circle shape mirrors (10-15cm all round) & paint the frames(of plastic) gold/bronze and add just under each of the paintings in the middle... oh what a beautiful look for that room,& the energy would flow nicely.. i'd even get a light weight circle paper lamp top shade matching the floor colours.. try imagining your room & best it stays within the natural elements yet with the right pop here & there...

    I do wish i could come over & do it for you, or with you, as that room has potential for great energy flow, especially for creating wealth.

    Ok, yes i know i have said enough, but hey nothing i have suggested is hard or costly, maybe a little elbow work & thats it... whatever you do just be a Happy Crafter... earnest affection for your room:))))

    I just redid a home and used the color Agreeable Grey. The floors in the house are tile planks with greys and tans that look like wood. It's beautiful.

  • Donna Wise Donna Wise on Mar 31, 2017

    I have grey walls now, but I don't think its agreeable grey. Everyone was saying they thought it would be to much grey. Thank you for your input I might just go for it because I haven't been able to come up with anything else

    You know, I think that depends on what other colors you have in your home. All the open spaces should flow with similar colors, but that doesn't mean they have to be the same colored room. For example in a home of mine, I used the main colors of deep red, soft yellow gold and spring/mossy green when those colors were popular. So, my living room was mostly buttery yellow, with touches of green and red; my dining room was deep red with accents of green and yellow, and my husband's study was green with touches of red and green, but added creams, And in the kitchen area, I had yellows with red and green, but added black. It all flowed together but it wasn't boring and repetitive.

    So, what colors are you using in your home? Maybe use a bold color for the backsplash and a more muted color on the walls...or vice versa. Then add your accent colors. Usually coordinate colors are on the same paint chip card in the store to help you out. Have fun!

    I'm going with Valspar's Oyster Pearl in a satin finish. It's a very neutral light color that will work with all your colors. Best of luck.

    Why not go for a complete contrast from beige and add a Morocan multi coloured tile splash back?

  • I personally would totally do some wallpaper here or a wall mural to add pattern and texture to the space.

  • Janice Janice on Apr 24, 2024

    I would recommend a light tone of "greige" and then add some brightly colored decor that ties in with other colors in your home on the major wall you showed in the pic.

  • I love drama and accent walls. Wallpaper is huge now, I might be tempted to add it to one (or all) wall and I would go with a dark navy on the walls if you don't love wallpaper and maybe in combine it with a creamy white.
