Need Your Help, Decorators, Stagers, Painters or Anyone With An Eye For Picking Colours 

You are probably going to find this hard to believe.  It's time to paint the kitchen and we can't agree on what colour to use.

So we thought we would reach out to all our Artive Rain friends.  With a 189,000+ Rainers out there, this may have to come down to a vote.

Below, is a couple of pictures of our kitchen cupboards, with and without flash.  The Builder told us they were natural maple.  We have a blue pearl granite counter top that looks mostly black.  The room is about 28' long by 12'  with 9' ceilings and glass walkout at one end.

We haven't picked a backsplash yet, but wanted to get the rest of the room painted.

Looking forward to hearing your ideas of what colour to paint the walls.

We usually use Benjamin Moore paint, it is one of the higher quality paints in our area, but we are sure if you can give us your opinion we should be able to find it or a close match.

Thanks for your ideas, it may just keep peace in the family.

Ha, Ha, ok Pam will have to do that.  Our appliances are black, the counter is granite called blue pearl but shows alot of black, cabinets are a natural Maple, floors off white or cream ceramic, no backsplash yet but leaning towards  a tumble cream coloured ceramic with a bronze ribbon bar in the shape of a square over the cook top. Dining & Living rooms are separate but next to the kitchen and are a deep purple called Cabernet. Hardwood is honey coloured. Everything is basically light.

Yes Nick we had troubles with the Sherwin link, but went directly over to Sherwin and in. The virtual look works great! Love the tumble ceramic backsplash look, with a touch of flair with a bronze piping.

JOSH!! Only the before shot is showing!! :( Please re-send your other pics............please!

Hi Al & Peggy,

You need to tie your kitchen in with the adjoining rooms, so I would use the cream coloured ceramic back splash but in a small tile which includes random Cabernet (or as close as you can) tiles scattered throughout.

Without seeing anything and trying to picture it my mind, I think I would paint the kitchen an eggshell and accessorize with a lot of splashes of black and blue pearl and Cabernet to tie everything in together.

I agree with Debbie-but I would have added matching to the floor of course!  And I definitely agree about the subway tile!
