    I'm pretty much gutting my townhouse more or less, and the kitchen is complete (paint wise) and is the color in the background in this Sherwin-Williams sample. It's called Network Gray.

    The trim is the same color, and I tried matching the furniture as close as possible (mine is a very dark mocca leather).

    The reason I selected this scenario on the paint matcher, is that my floor plan is open... meaning you'll see the kitchen color from the living room and vise-versa.

    Pictures so you kinda get the idea....

    I am thinking I'd like to go with an grayish-orange, to try and compliment the grayish blue I have in the kitchen. Also, the cabinets are going to be white and the same color as the trim.

    I always hear that you're supposed to pick opposite on the color wheel if you aren't going to stay in the same color range:

    What say you OT? Give me some ideas... I've been battling with this for over a week :o


    edit: floors are all wood, a light cherry oak color

    Wish I could help you, but decorating is not my strongest field.
