Kitchen color palette

Over my Christmas break, I painted our kitchen. Much of our house is painted the same creamy neutral color (except for our bathrooms and bedrooms). It’s a fine color, but I was sick of looking at it and I was sick of the yellow tones it gives me in photos in the kitchen. It is now painted a warm gray.



I’m ready to paint some canvases and get new kitchen towels and perhaps paint some of our items on our counters (spatula holders, etc.) But I’m unsure what colors to use as accents. There’s a built-in accent: red. The counters and floors have red in them.

I’ve got some ideas but I just can’t make up my mind. Care to share your thoughts?
