in the beginning stages of almost a complete renovation of a house we bought and am having a few problems with the kitchen. The counter is a dark blue, I love it and am keeping that. My hubby has stripped the cabinet doors and stained them red chestnut, beautiful color. The issue now, seeing as how only the cabinet DOORS are being stripped and stained, is what color to paint the cabinets themselves....something that will go nice with the blue countertops and red chestnut cabinet doors. Also looking for a color to paint the entire kitchen, tieing everything together. would love to hear a few ideas. thanks.

Thank you Rebekah! I stumbled on this article at just the right time. I'm currently trying to decide how to mix white and natural wood in my kitchen reno. Can you give more detail about how to coordinate the different colours, materials, heights and depths of the different pieces without it looking like a hodge podge?
