paint question for white marble/quarzite kitchens

Posted by athenab (My Page) on

I wish I had pictures to post, but I have nothing. Demo is starting on November 26th. The custom, shaker cabinets will be white dove. The marble is Carrara Statuarietto. It is a cheaper version of Statuary marble. It's definitely white with light and dark gray veining.
Anyway, the easy paint choice would be a greige. However, the kitchen opens to the family room which is painted an olive-tan and has olive/green and reds in the furniture. So, I'm worried about the greige being a completely wrong palette. Cold instead of warm. I have been thinking about a more vivid green, such as BM Mountain Lane or Louisberg Green. They want to paint before installing the cabinets of course. There won't be a lot of wall space, but it does go almost right up to the family room wall.

Thanks for any suggestions and again, so sorry that I have nothing to show you!

Revere Pewter? Looks great with Calacatta, but maybe too much beige for the greyer Carrara. Not cold at all. Stonington gray usually looks good with Carrara, but has a definite bluish undertone. Fieldstone is a popular darker grey with white marbles and may bridge the gap from green to blue/gray. HTH

Casaloma, I was wondering about Revere Pewter, but again, thought it might be too gray for the olive. I have not seen Fieldstone. I will check that one out. But, can you put a gray next to an olive? I guess that's my dilemma.

Michelle16, I was actually thinking about reaching out to you because I had seen your gorgeous kitchen pictures and noticed that your kitchen also opened up to a tan/green family room. So, I gather then that you're happy with the Edgecomb?

I love, love, love your kitchen. It is just gorgeous. The counters, the inset cabinets, the countertop cabinets, the window down to the counter, your "sink jewelry" are all exquisite.
