Help my kitchen please

We just bought this place and want to make it our own. Looking for wall color ideas and a back splash. I'm even thinking of staining the cabinets a little darker (I love cherry finishes). We live in the Southwest (AZ), so maybe something to represent the area, but I am up for any suggestions. The couch in the 4th pic is going...we are making that the dining area, so I'd love to tie that in to the kitchen. Thanks!

I think a darker stain with the black appliances and dark countertops would look good. A stain something like this: Traditional Kitchen. Maybe mix the cabinet color: New Providence Lane Kitchen. Knobs and hardware on the cabinets would also dress them up: Kitchen.

I would think about warm colors for the walls: Brumbaugh Residence, Maple Traditional Kitchen.

I like the light over the kitchen table, but the track lighting could be updated. I am not a fan of stuff on the top of cabinets. For me, it says, "dust collector."

Thanks for the input! I love the color of the cabinets in "kitchen" and I love the idea of updating with knobs and hardware. I agree with you: I hate dust collectors!
