Getting Over the Dream Kitchen and Help Me Pick A Color!

on July 23, 2013

This past weekend was spent doing a renovation reversal of sorts.  Basically we moved most of the cabinets and counters from the old house and moved them to the new house.  We only left the sink and dishwasher section because it would not work in our current kitchen without a lot of opening the walls.  As it is, we will likely have counter tops blocking windows for a while.

I’m looking forward to having more counter and cabinet space.  That is such a necessity at this point that I’m okay with a little bit of wonkiness in our kitchen.

So before we put everything in it’s place, we would like to paint and and choose a back splash.  This will be our kitchen for the foreseeable future.   Maybe 5 years or so from now we’ll be able to do an update, but for now this is it.

So, there’s the deal.  Honey Oak Cabinets.  Orangey tiled floor.

With their powers combined it creates a powerfully orange room!  Orange is not a color I particularly enjoy as it is unless it’s in a sunrise or sunset.

So, with your help, hopefully, I need to decide on a wall color and back splash color to help tone down the orange!  I’m thinking maybe a light green, or perhaps something in the blue family.  A cooler color for sure however.

Any advice?
