If leaving the cabinets the green, then you can actually change the appearance by staining decorative wood trim a rich walnut or mahogany and placing it at the top and bottom of your ceiling--keeping it within the country feel.

Otherwise, I would create a travertine look by sponging layers or greens, turquoise, and brown over each other.

You actually have a lot of choices..a much lighter shade of the cabinet color,muted yellows/golds, even blues. But I would not paint it too dark..and I would not do a paint "treatment". Your space, however, screams for color accents to give it some life. Maybe multi colored glass on pendants, a patterned, colorful, Roman shade on the window. Cannot see rest of room, but large artwork with color. If space above cabinets just a few large items with color. A stripe or strie such as this wallpaper from Thibaut http://www.thibautdesign.com/collection/old_collection.php?patternID=330&productID=2227&material=Wallpaper&colorID=5

The room needs patterns & prints.

Remember to ALWAYS choose your wall paint colors last. Move in add or change any furniture & rugs & drapery, tile, flooring..then choose your paint colors. It will be easier and you will be much happier..there are thousands of paint shades and only a few pieces of furniture, fabric, etc. that you will really like. Many people make the mistake of doing this process backwards...it adds lots of frustration and money. My best to you.
