If you choose a soft colour for your cupboards, then you can paint the walls the same colour. I did this with a pale yellow shade, then just added a white benchtop, white glass tiles, white window trim and blind and the cupboards blend with the wall to make the room look bigger and less cluttered while the white keeps everything looking really fresh. Been over 2 1/2 years since I did it and I still love walking into the room, it is so peaceful.

My favourite colour lately is Dulux Blue Lobelia. I painted my front door with it, a small chest of drawers, and a few small items. I love the deepness of the blue in the evening and the bright..well...typical lobelia blue in the day time.

I have been umming and ahhhing for a very long time at what colour I should use for the kitchen cupboards thatgets little light naturally. I am daring to be bold and go the Blue Lobelia but I am concerned it may 'bring in' the kitchen. It is on the small side, but then again, nothing ventured nothing gained, right?

I'm not a fan of yellow especially in the kitchen. Pale blue, meh. Greys I like but need to be in the right style kitchen. Now I am still leaning toward dramatic blue! Argh! that does it! >grabs paint tin and brush<
