RE: Help! kitchen paint colors with oak cabinets (Follow-Up #13)

Thanks!!! I'm new here, and I have a feeling I will be visiting frequently. (= I am going to try to post the pictures of my very unfinished kitchen. We just moved into this new-to-us house built in the 90s. We've made a TON of upgrades including new hardwood floors, granite counters, and tile backsplash. I would love to put in new cabinets or paint them, but the hubs just can't take on another project at this point. So I must live with the oak. I'm not sure exactly what I'm trying to do with the oak... just upgrade them I guess. I plan to add oil rubbed bronze knobs and drawer pulls to the cabinets. I think I'm drawn to a Tuscan kitchen. (that is sort of my inspiration)

Thanks so much sheesharee for teaching me how to upload pictures. I absolutely adore your green kitchen! That looks like exactly what I'm aiming for. I plan to go get a sample of that paint tonight! I'm definitely open to other suggestions, though, because everyone's house is different with the amount of sunlight coming in. I hope that BM green shows up the same in my kitchen! (=

This is the unfinished kitchen so far.

A view of the kitchen looking into the family room. Please forgive the move-in mess! The family room and kitchen sort of run together. We're not convinced the current color in the family room should stay, so we can always change it!

I was originally planning on continuing the base color in the house (a khaki color) in the kitchen. We realized, however, that this color is identical in color to our tile. So now we think we should go with something that would give us more contrast. Here is a picture that shows the color of tile compared to the base color in the house. Photobucket

SW Believable Buff or Whole Wheat (on same strip but a shade darker). They're two of SW's most popular neutrals.
