Currently my walls are a dark burgundy which I have enjoyed but now I need a change! I love the color blue... Any suggestions on what hue would look good with my cabinets would be helpful.
Thanks :-)

As you can see my kitchen is quite small, however it is quite bright because of the three windows and door. Any ideas? Counter is Black/grey/white Corian. I have not decided on backsplash...

Love blue too. A periwinkle blue would look great with your cabinets. Sorry no color charts at hand so I can't give you an actual color number but with the amount of cabinets in your kitchen, the blue would look great with a tint of pale blue glass in the backsplash too.

Thank you for the color idea, will be at the paint store tomorrow! While I am not changing cabinets, I very much want to change it up.... Staying traditional but modern.. Will be changing out hardware, sink and adding tile on wall... Needs to look fresh and updated!!!

Peacock blue would also be pretty. Best thing is to paint large pieces of posterboard in your sample colors, and leave them in their intended space for a few days. You can see how the color looks in different light situations. Amazing sometimes how paint color is different once you get it in the room! Have fun!
