Blue kitchen needs repainted!

March 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We just bought a house and had ample time to paint and do what we need before we move in. The kitchen has great white cabinets with natural colored stone along the wall and a whiteish backsplash. Nice marbles granite. But the walls are blue. I am at a loss to mat h the paint to the stone color or just match it with the white backsplash. Help please? (In one picture there is an area where the previous owners painted a tannish brown an even thy looks better than the blue. Opinions? Any suggestions? Anything will help! (If I matters, all my kitchen ware is Kitchenaid Red and Black)

I'm going to bump this up! You do need advice on the blue! I think it needs to be lighter...but I'm not going to go to colors with you!

This kitchen has white cabs and a similar toned countertop to yours, they've painted it beige and I think it looks really good: [houzz=

Ah I do love the beige :). The blue really is just not good at all. THE first thing on the to do list!

Beige or a medium gray for the walls. The blue has to go.

compliment the granite in one of the lighter shades to open the room and add reflective attributes off the granite finish, stone is the accent trim. Look at Glidden Professional Paint LumiTec Technology brings a whole new level of brightness to painted rooms. Rooms painted with LumiTec Technology colors may require up to 20% less artificial lighting.

This color by Benjamin Moore "Hot Spring Stone" could look nice ... it's kind of a warm tan/grey tone
