Terry....my kitchen is almost identical yours for TEN years. White cabinets, butcher block in center like yours, honey oak floors. No tile on backsplash area....is painted red there too. I do have a window over sink with white plantation shutters Guess what....painters are due this week to paint it GRAY. your is lovely so this gives me hope. My gray is Ben Moore Revere Pewter...probably a little lighter and more "Greige" than yours, but I am thinking going darker with the eight ft ceilings if all goes well with wall color. What is your color?

Hello dbclark52,
I would also agree the the three horizontal surfaces would remain whatever color your ceiling is but the vertical surfaces can be either the same as your wall color to add so definition or depending on the total ceiling height and to make a more subtle impact all horizontal and vertical surfaces would match the wall or the ceiling color.

I'd say if the ceiling is 10' or more than either way will would it is just a person preference at that point.
But if the ceilings are 8' or lower than I would have to say I'd either paint all the surfaces the wall color or at least the vertical surfaces for more definition.

Hope this helps,

Thanks, shelliap. I think that this kind of stuff is taken too lightly too often, and, as much of a DIYer as I am, I think the professionals should be in charge of asbestos removal..

Our last home had a huge master bath with plenty of light coming from 5 windows, on three sides. I wasn't at all afraid to paint our ceiling black. I loved it as did the visitors who toured on two different home showcase tours. We plan to build a modern farmhouse in the next few years and I intend to use black windows. I love black's versatility to swing from glam to modern.

Thanks! I had the walls painted a few years ago, and I am still not sure that I "love" them. Sometimes I wish I would have gone a little lighter. I went out of my comfort zone with that color. I am thinking the hallway, but not sure how to arrange them. Here is a closer picture of the prints.

no, no ..... if anything, a shade darker : )

I'm probably not the best one to advise about arranging the pictures. You could group them in fairly close proximity, or string them out down the hall. Or, you could group the three without frames together and hang the framed one on the other side of the hall. It is a matter of personal preference.

My favorite charcoal gray is Dior Gray by Benjamin Moore. I love using it for an accent wall and bright colors just seem to pop against it. I love Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore too and I love how it looks against white trim.

Interesting to read this when I've just posted a design dilemma where one of the first pieces of advice was -- paint out the blue/gray walls. I'd really rather change every other element in the room.
