I plan to add knobs and change the window treatments too.

Besides a boring beige or grey, may I suggest a cobalt blue to balance the dark cabinets. The color needs depth. Do you have any special dishes that have a certain color? What about the adjacent room? Dunn Edwards DE5894 Starstruck would be great.

Central Park and Kiwi by Benjamin Moore are nice grey-greens that would freshen up the space. Also, since you say you are changing the window treatments, white roman shades would look good with the green paint and dark reddish wood.

Grey. Sorry, but that's what I see working best.

Pantone is talking about a new color called French Roast that's a dark brown/black color. I think it's on trend and have liked this hue for a long time- I just call it "brack". Since you have very little wall space shown in the photo, you could go with a dark color like this one. It will make that window and trim pop. I'd add a pleated shade in a graphic pattern to add a bit of punch to the kitchen. Note: since you may choose a new color in a different shade than adjoining rooms, make sure you select a natural place to terminate the new color. Otherwise, an open kitchen concept may feel chopped up. Good luck!

I have done a kitchen very similar to yours. We did the cabinets in Sherwin Williams Svelte Sage #6164. It is fresh and classy.

Some greens you may want to get chips on are: "sparkling apply" by Behr; "spring meadow" by Valspar, and "brookside moss or fresh cut grass" by benjamin moore. Remember you can get samples and test in different lights and if you dont like it, just repaint. Good Luck
