Help choosing wall color to go with blue kitchen cabinets!

I need to paint my drab, used to be yellow kitchen walls. My problem is the cornflower.french blue cabinets. I love the blue but it's difficult to match. Do I contrast? Blend? Go darker or lighter? Suggestions appreciated!

Hope my link to a pic works!

If you want to have pale blue walls, have the paint store mix up the same color formula you used for the cabinets, but in a larger quantity of paint. You will get a paler shade, and it will match tones.

If they take the formula for a pint and put it into a quart, you get "50%". If they use the formula for a quart and put it into a gallon, you get "25%" ... going even lighter usually doesn't work too well.

I think pale yellow walls would look smashing with those cabinets.
