kitchen color scheme and paint recommendations?

cottonpennyMarch 8, 2012

I'm trying to design our new kitchen in our new build. It's hard cause I can't see anything together yet!

So far we are having:

creamy white perimeter cabinets

espresso island cabinets

caesarstone raven perimeter counters

caesarstone misty carrera island counter

SS appliances and hood

American cherry hardwood floor

backsplash undecided but maybe just white or marble

I have a few pieces of Le Creuset cookware that are Flame and Red.

I saw this paper which pairs a lightish turquoise blue with orangey red and green (link below).

Do you think this sort of color would look good in my kitchen? Any idea of what blue paint would look good with the orange Le Creuset?

Here is a link that might be useful: japanese paper

The best blue color I have ever seen by far is 'Contemplation' By Bher. Its a grey, green, blue. Would look wonderful.

You might check out these Ben Moore colors: Palladian Blue or Wythe Blue. Or, more subtle -- Quiet Moments.

Love the combination of aqua blue and orange.

My kitchen is very dark cherry with creamy white. My drapes are aqua, red, orange, green and creamy white! The color palette was inspired by some favorite cookware. The walls are not blue so perhaps these photos will not be helpful to you but I'll post them anyway.
