So now back to square one: What color for the cabinets? I don't want all white.
I was thinking maybe a light blue, but then what for the walls?
I hate decorating. I need someone to come to my house and just tell me what colors go and what don't.
i'm sorry it didn't go so well.
: appliance shopping never seems to go as smoothly when you are actually BUYING then when you are just looking.
blue cabinets are really beautiful! this
is kind of the color family that we're looking to paint out cabinets......although not nearly this dark. we were planning on a creamy white color, but we too have white appliances currently and that was just too much white for my taste! this is a kind of blue/grey color. we're then planning on painting the walls a sort of "coffee with cream"/grey/tan color.......which is just so easy to visualize huh?! LOL! the color name is "frappe" from valspar. in any case, the blue will look good with white appliances....and in my case will still look good when we switch to stainless steel.
and even a very pale blue would look amazing! with maybe a light khaki color on the walls. very modern "beach cottage".
just be sure to inject some wood tones and natural elements so it doesn't feel too "cold"......sometimes blue is a tricky color to decorate with.
ETA: FOUND ONE! here's
a gorgeous blue color on the cabinets with a creamy tan on the walls and some wood elements.
ETA: FOUND ANOTHER ONE! okay, the color of these cabinets
is totally calling my name! lol!
