I Want to Paint My Kitchen I Need Help with Colors?

We purchased un-finished oak cabinets and stained them a very nice darker tan color. Our counter has many colors going through it, kind of looks like a lizard skin. It has tans, grays, black and white in it. I'm having a hard time deciding what color to paint the walls. Can someone help me with some ideas? It would be appreciated.
Thanks, Patti

I would use a lighter shade. Choose one color from mix on countertop so colors complement each other. Stay away from a dark color otherwise your kitchen will appear would smaller.

I'm having trouble understanding what you counter looks like, maybe you could post a picture? If not I say red or orange walls. Not bright orange. A softer, darker, warmer orange. If you color it red, it should be dark red. You could try just white.

Anything but bright yellow; psychologically speaking, b yellow has proven to be a volatile color - causing arguments.

A nice red, gray, black, white, or yellow should fit nicely. Don't go too bright, if your ceiling is white, avoid the gray, white and yellow. If you want a nice homey feeling to your kitchen, paint it a dark grey, brown, or black. Neutralize your colors.

well...I think, that you should paint your kitchen walls with a light shade of blue so it can match the tan cabinets...you can also have tile flooring that's a light shade of grey.

if you paint your walls a light color like eggshell or tan it would show off your cabinets and counters
