Kitchen wall color: does this work?

I've struggled with choosing a color for my kitchen. I love my oak cabinets and want the wall color to compliment and bring out the wood in the cabinets. I don't want it to feel dark but do want it warm and cozy. Does this color work? Ignore the peachy-beige around the edges, hasn't been trimmed out yet. It started out with a match to Sherwin-Williams Garden Sage. Hated it. So I've adjusted and added some gold and toned down the green by adding red. I think this is it, but would like some fresh perspective.

The thing is, if you like the color- it looks great! Seems like a color that would be easy to add vibrant accent colors too. Ie cranberry, turquoise, etc.. Enjoy your kitchen and trust your decision

I think you just invented YOUR color! What fun to think you did that and what a story to tell visitors when they ask! I think you totally accomplished your goal and agree with Tammy that cranberry would be a wonderful accent color now.

agree, if you love the colour it works :-) It's warm without being too dark. I agree you could add some lovely accent colours in your art etc. Green, Autumn Red, Plum, Blue. Lots options.

Thanks! I'm not afraid to mix colors.. prefer it, actually. I can paint a swatch on the wall and make changes immediately. I did a LOT of mixing on this one.... no idea what color I ended up with, but I do like it. I will be accenting with red, not sure what else. This color is for the kitchen / nook / family room, all connected in an L-shape. The family room will have brown leather furniture.
