Benjamin Moore Dry Sage is a wonderful rich deep sage green and will compliment your oak cabinets very nicely. Good luck !

The cabinets actually look like they are in good shape in the photos. I think we need photos of the rest of the space and floor to help, otherwise we will just be calling out random colors. Think about your color preferences. If this is an eat in kitchen maybe coordinate a color with your plates.

The only thing I can suggest from the limited view you offered is a warm soft "food" color. Coffee, Cream Yellow, Caramel, Warm red....

Once you choose your color you may want to think about adding handles and pulls.

Since you have a wall vent fan consider integrating a 4" deep shelf in the same tone wood at the line of the bottom of the upper cabinets for spices and painting or papering the upper portion of that area (behind the spices) a different (corresponding) color. You can get small jars for that shelf that match.

Backsplashes are inexpensive. There are 100's of creative things you can do yourself..even add a mosaic tile.

Does this room look into any other rooms that could suggest a color?with a blank slate like you have you are free to do practically whatever color you want. So look around at what you have that you're keeping , what you love and be inspired!
