What to do with the walls and color scheme in this kitchen? I want to keep appliances in stainless steel range but have no idea what to do with color accents. Anything from paint to tea towel suggestions welcome. Rest of house is minimalist/rationalist light greys/metallics/mirrored furniture etc. THANKS!

I commented before...thank you for taking a close up of the counter top and back splash tile. Based on this, again I would go with a light, warm gray or warm cream. I would use pretty cream accents in accessories and tea towel to lighten up the space. You could also install a cute valance above sink (just make sure to hang all the way up to the ceiling).

Shajira--I like the mosaic tile, and although I am not wild about the color, it will compliment stainless steel appliances. Odd that the cabinets do not touch the soffit--is there uplighting on top? If not, I would consider a cable light, it would be a nice effect that would illuminate that space above the upper cabinets. For the wall color, I would suggest something in the color range of the counters. The color schemes and layouts aren't exact matches to yours, although I hope they may help what it would be like to visualize the walls with some color. Happy Houzzing.

I would consider black appliances I think stainless may blend in with your background

I think you should use a light grey lined box pleated valance mounted all the way up to the ceiling.

Are you keeping the backsplash and counter or are you open to changing either of them?

Definitely missing decorative accessories from window treatment to colored potted herbs will make this place feel alive.

Love the idea on adding cable lighting underneath the top counters. Changing the backsplash or counter are not an option for me right now. I was hoping wall color and accessories could help as I wasn't crazy with how the combo turned out.
How do the rest of you feel about black appliances?
thanks again everybody!
