Conversation #32: Kitchen Design Help!

Okay, I don’t really know that too many people read this blog since I moved to a new address, but I’m begging if you do, please help me.  I am at a loss on what to do with part of my kitchen.

Here is how I painted my kitchen 3 years ago:

It was fun, bright, and I like it, but we decided it needed to be a bit more grown-up these days.  I knew we would have to paint it before we moved so we decided to just go ahead and do it now for a change.  We decided to go with a gray so that it would be neutral but not boring.  However, the gray had a strong blue tone to it on the walls and now I need to phase out my turquoise decor I think.

Here are some afters (still putting it back together):

Some of these are the same shots but with/without flash to show the colors.  I think I really like the new color, but the turquoise trim does not go anymore in my opinion.  I’m trying to figure out what to do with it, and I need help!!!  Please, give me ideas!!! I’m seriously begging now because the hubby and I cannot agree.  THANKS!

I would do crisp white trim. I think that would make the gray pop and it would look sophisicated. I agree that the turquoise looks a little out of place.

I agree with Jennifer, a nice white trim out draw out the blue tone of your walls.

A rich cream could look really nice too.

I'm with them... white would match the cabinets and the other moldings on the windows. I would maybe consider painting gray over the black under your cabinets as well...? If you don't cover the black, then I think you could also consider black on the trim. (It would sortof blend in, and frame the tiles above the stove)

What do you think, and what does hubby think, that you're disagreeing over?

Another vote for white trim -- your photos show just how much of a difference paint can make!

Oh my goodness dear! Good for you for taking on such a hefty project :) I must say it looks wonderful! Perhaps a neutral trim like black, brown or maybe even a gray?
