Decorating & Furniture/kitchen wall paint


Hi, I am remodleing My kitchen. The counters are black speckled copper and tan and white swirl colors. The cabnits are a yellow oakish color. Black appliances. The adjoining living room ( Almost one big room.Open desighn) Has ble and back tables and deep blue couches. The wall paint is a soft pale peach color with mauve blue green and pinks and yellow pastels through the room. What color paint should I use for the kitchen wall? It is a small room there is a skylight that We put in to give lots of light. I want to keep it airy and bright.

Hi Julie,

Thanks for your question.  

If you want to continue the feel you have going in the adjacent space (great room) you could use the blue/green as your wall color for the kitchen.  A turquoise is too dark, but a lighter shade of teal would be beautiful and coordinate the two spaces.  

Another option - putty or taupe; a brownish grey.  Beautiful.

Visit my web site at: Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.


College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
