What colour on the kitchen walls with cream Rangemaster?

We're having a new kitchen put into our 250 yr old cottage. Focal point will be cream 110cm classic Rangemaster, and the units will be either Vanilla (same cream as range) or Alabaster from DIY kitchens. Worktops are grey faux slate and flooring is chestnut effect laminate.

I'm really struggling with a colour for the walls! Our whole downstairs is open plan and only has windows on one wall so light is an issue. When we moved in the whole house (I kid you not) was painted in that lovely sage green that looks so nice in cottages... but it made the room so very dark. It's currently a creamly almond-y shade but think it needs to be a little lighter and more neutral.

Does anyone have any recommendations for light shades that will work well in a dark room and compliment the colour of the kitchen and stove? We've got sage green kettle and toaster so hoping to tie these in somehow. Any specific paint recommendations appreciated as I'm at the testing on walls stage at the mo.

Thank you!

Dulux First Frost is a lovely shade of turquoise in light reflecting paint. Won't go with kettle etc.

We have a cream Ringmaster and our kitchen is currently F&B All White. Last year it was F&B Wimborne White. Both look really nice.

Our units are grey and we have oak worktops/island etc.

Ringmaster? Rangemaster, fucking auto correct.

We have vanilla painted MDF units and a similar coloured range cooker (smeg rather than range master) and our walls (open plan) are Dulux Timeless. We have light granite work surfaces and an oak floor with a turquoise glass splash back - think it works well.

Thanks everyone who's posted. marmite I tested some Timeless but it didn't quite go I thought - might wait until it's in to decide as it's hard to visualise!

A pale sagey green would look nice

I think it also depends on what lighting you have and whether the bulbs are more white or yellow!

+1 for a sage shade

Thanks ! Any actual paint names for a good pale sage? Lights will be warm white spots on ceiling and less warm led under cabinet strip light.

I've got both F&B Blue-Gray (medium sage green, confusingly) and Dimpse, which is paler, in different rooms here. They'd be a good starting point if you're looking at colour charts.

Not real F&B though (nightmare stuff); mixed from the chart by the nice man at the paint shop smile

F&B (copied in Johnstones trade) in Bone is lovely. We have it in our kitchen and utility room. It is a greeny, sagey, very muted colour. We are very happy with it.
