Looking for the right red-orange for the kitchen

I'm looking for JUST THE RIGHT COLOR for my kitchen. Kinda orangey red, but not really orange and not really RED either. Rich color without being hard or harsh. Let's call it an orangey rusty pinky faded red.

Martha Stewart has some of these including the enticingly named "Terra Rosa." I try not to buy paint based on the names but that one is certainly tempting!

Wondering if anyone has anything like this on your walls and/or could share pics, comments, suggestions?

I have BM audubon russet in my kitchen and I love it. I will try and post some pics:



I even have it on one wall in my living room. The door that you see leads to the kitchen (from christmas last year):

Hope this helps!!!

Farrow and Ball Red Earth.

YESSSSSS - since my kitchen cabs are sorta a creamy white similar to that painted trim, I think that will look quite nice.

Red Earth- love the sound of that ... will check them both out, thx

I'd second the vote on BM audubon russet. We also painted our kitchen BM Mayflower Red which is very similar with a tad more red but still orange/red. Good luck!

I just painted my kitchen Ellen Kennon's Pumpkin Spice; and it is just gorgeous .... a nice warm color. However, it is more orange than red.

First time using her paint color (mixed with Gliddon paint) and liked it very much. I don't really know how to post pix or I would.
