Please help me pick a paint colour for my kitchen!

In my kitchen I have those yellowy-orange oak cupboards that everyone would love to tone down (including me), however that is not an option at this time, so would love suggestions that would compliment the colour. Don't know whether to pick a colour that is opposite or similar to them. The appliances are stainless steel and the floor and counter tops are grey-black-taupe tones with grey-taupe backsplash. I was thinking of something in the green-blue range. Any suggestions?

I 'm leaning to Camila pic (or lighter) and Ivy Vine from the palette.

What color yellow would you suggest? I too have oak cabinets that don't seem to look good with any color? I have porter paints white wheat (or wheat white - an old color - a yellow off white) in an adjoining family room? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Alligator Alley is a yellow green, maybe too much of a pale yellow.

I like teals and blue green family of color. They wil cool the kitchen down and the yellow in the cabinets and are great with gray. A color that is blue or teal will be a stronger contrast and take the eye away from too much yellow.

I would not try to match the cabinet yellow especially since you're not fond of the yellow in the oak. Go contrast.

Meanmomofthree, It's best for you to get individual help from all of us by posting a dilemma of your kitchen separately from this poster. We will be glad to help you!
