I Need Help Quick
Oh me....here I am again asking...pleading for your help!
Since I didn't get but one response on my other post thought I would try once more...hoping to get some ideas and advise.
Painting will start the end of the week....and I have no idea Where I am going with this kitchen??? I will go tomorrow to get some samples to try.
I first thought I was going to do bead board in a light chocolate for the majority of my back splash and behind the stove go with a glass and stone narrow tile that has shades of chocolate, and dark and light cream. Cabinets are very Creamy with oil rubbed bronze hardware and my granite is Bianco Romano which has all of the above colors in it.
My floor is a floating tile with different shapes and sizes of light and dark chocolate and creams.
We opened up part of the den...but not complete Open Concept ..but the rooms do flow into each other with a small snack bar opened to the ceiling and next to it about 3 ft or more that is open to the ceiling.
After looking at countless kitchens and reading post after post...I now don't know What I want. This morning I had thought since my kitchen is so small maybe a shade close to cabinet color would be good on the walls such as SW Ivorie..the lighter shade of the samples on line are closer to my cabinet color.
Or should I go a shade lighter...or a shade darker??
If I do this I do not think I will use chocolate as a back splash but go more neutral.
Was talking to my daughter who honestly should have pursued a career in decorating and she thought I shouldn't do a cream color but perhaps a shade of green.
My Den now is a soft mossy green that I love and I would like to keep it some sort of green like SW Fern, SW Svelte Sage or BM Weekend Getaway and BM Loiusburg Green.
The cabinet door has a pinkish cast in the picture...but it truly doesn't.....it is definitely a True Cream very close to Ivorie.
Would it look OK to have the kitchen painted the Ivorie, (or some shade like it) which will only show a small portion of paint on the end where the three windows are and the kitchen table sits...barely anything over the cabinets will show.....and keep my den a green?
Or would it look better to paint the den perhaps a shade darker than the kitchen but keep it in the same cream to gold family?
My den has valances that has a mossy olive green, rusty red and gold in them as does an occasional chair. The sectional is a muted rusty red...So either the right shade of green or gold should go with what I have.
I would appreciate so much any suggestion anyone might have on what to do.
1.) Go with a Creamy Gold such as Ivoire in the kitchen and either the same color or a shade or two darker in the den?
2.) Go with the Ivoire in kitchen and the Mossy Green such as Svelte Sage or one of the other greens in the den?
3.) What color for woodwork, ceiling and crown molding? CM will only be in den.
OR if you have other color suggestions than what I have mentioned...Please share...
I have looked forward to a new kitchen in this house for over 30 years...Who would have thought it would be such a hassle and worry!
Hubby is absolutely No Help...and daughter lives a hundred miles away and has just started a new job...so no time to spare right now for anything....
So I'm turning to everyone here for Help...thanks so much
