What colour should I paint the walls on my black gloss kitchen to make it warmer. I have white/cream floor tiles and some of the worktop is iroko and some black granite. It is an open pln modern house

What is your favorite HOT HOT color? Red? Orange? Lime? Lemon? Paint some poster board with samples to stick up and try before you dive in!

Thanks for the advice - I had thought of orange but I may not be brave enough! So far Ihave kept most of the walls in my house white!

shibbys, you know, there's a lot to be said for white walls. I have a long dark hallway, no natural light, and only one skimpy light fixture. It was painted a dark beige when we moved in, I painted it off-white about a month ago. What a difference!

Maybe it's possible to paint an accent wall? Kind of like dipping your toes in the pool before you dive in!

Black is almost a neutral color that anything you pick will go with it.

Do you have a backsplash? You could pull a color from that.

thanks for all your ideas. Dytecture - I really love the purple with the white- its my sort of look. Problem is I have huge windows and mistakely have beige curtains on them that are too expensive to change - any ideas on how to tie it together
