Maria, congrats on your remodel. Your wood floor looks nice -- what kind of wood is it ?

Maria, I hear Benjamin Moore has a free app from their website that allows you to use your own photos and experiment with different colors on different walls, etc. but I have not used it yet. Maybe worth a try ? :)

If you are using a grey beige colour just make sure your wood doesn't have too much yellow in it - as the greige and yellow tend to wash each other out - but if you have a dark wood (as you seem to have), the red and greige will look wonderful with the dark wood (just find other accents to add bring some light as you go along - creams etc)

I think you should rethink your color choices as the hickory can tend to have orange tones to it (especially as it ages).... perhaps you could go with grey walls and use red in small appliance and other accent pieces?

The flash in this photo is showing undertones of yellow - I strongly advise you to do a large test patch on the wall and wait 24 hours to be sure you have the right tone of greige

It's also a kind of small kitchen will the grey on all walls make it look smaller?

Hi Maria, it won't necessarily make it look smaller, but the problem about the greige and yellow that I remarked on earlier might show up. I love grey and I think that would work fine (grey works well with yellow) but a grey that has yellow undertones (greige) is trickier. So just choose and test your grey carefully. All the best
