LoveOurBabies, what about using all 3 colors across the entire space? They all go together if you get the right shades. So do green with blue &/or purple accents in the kitchen, then the furthest connected area from that use your kitchen accent color as your dominant color with the green as accent. Balance it in the middle. Or use the 3rd color as accent throughout. I saw this done beautifully on a home dec show once. Wish I could but we are in a rental so I live vicariously.

-Initial clean of kitchen sink/stove/benches (before the deep cleaning comes along)

-Clear island of all the random stuff, scrub and disinfect (including cabinets underneath)

-Install island cabinet doors and panels, clean them

-Install push to open devices on all the top cabinets

-Install handles on the bottom cabinets and drawers

-Install shelving in all cabinets

-Install last drawer and 2 remaining cabinet doors

-Clean/disinfect shelving

-Clean all cabinet doors

-Install oven

-Install 2nd power point

-Install new tap

-Empty fridge and freezer, scrub down and disinfect, re-stock

-Clear and clean the top of the fridge/freezer

-Empty pantry, wipe down and re-organize with proper food storage containers

-Unpack the few remaining kitchen boxes

-Re-organize all cabinets and drawer contents so that every item is in it's proper spot

-Putty and paint the window sill

-Wash the windows with a vinegar solution

-Sit down and have a tea party with the kids in our lovely kitchen!

 

Marked one more thing off the list!

 

And here is a picture of what our benchtops/splashback look like... We have white cupboards/chandeliers too.. Would you do bold shades or soft shades to contrast??

Pretty! For my preferences bold would be too harsh. But pastels might be too soft... I'm fond of "dusty" colors. Not sure how that would look. If it were my house I'd start with my favorites, whatever it was, and buy a sample quart. I'd get some drywall & prime or oaint it white then paint it with the sample & hang it on the wall for a week. A big piece so you can see how it looks in different light. 2 or 3 feet at least.

I'm partial to jewel tones, and I think they would look pretty with lots of white.

 

I'm still organizing, but it has taken a back seat to exercising recently.

Thanks! I like both the jewel and dusty color ideas. It's so hard to decide. I was also considering using a lot of natural wood around the place to balance out the white and make it a little more earthy and less clinical. Gah, I have no idea what I want. I'm just glad to have chosen white as the background.

 

And now I will very quietly mention that I uhh, didn't finish the kitchen..
