Decorating - Benneconomy 101- part 4

Decisions, decisions~My kitchen counter top is speckled shades of gray with a hit of what looks like tan. With the cabinets being cherry wood and the stove and frig being black it is difficult to find a color for the kitchen. I really do not like this kitchen. I wish it were a different shape. If you do through that doorway and go to the right is a short hallway which leads to the great room on the left and the stairwell to the right, in front of you would lead to the guest bedroom and bath and to the right of the stairs around the corner is the foyer leading to the front door, livingroom and dining room. The stove and the frig will be changed to stainless steel at some point. These are just some pics to show where we are so far.

Since the counter tops are speckled we are experimenting with this gray color. It matches the counter tops.

And we are looking at these shades of gray as well

You can see 3 patches of gray on this wall. The lighter one at the top is my favorite one even though it may be a little light but the darker one at the bottom is the color that is shown above by the sink. This is the opposite entrance or exit to the kitchen which leads to the family room. If you remember we painted the family room sweater green. The picture hanging there on the wall was painted by our resident artist, Halle.

I have ZERO decorating skills and I am learning so much through these projects. We finished painting the dining room this evening so stayed tuned for the pics of that room. I would post them tonight but I would rather you see it in daylight.

Why don't you try a pop of color to warm it up...don't focus too much on the colors in the granite because they match the black appliances, why dont you try a brick red or a green something to make your cabinets pop, your granite is blending nicely with the appliances and compliments them well.
