Decided it's time to give the kitchen a fresh lick of paint - we've been here 4.5 years and not really done anything to the kitchen. It's currently white and boring, with teal tiles and gloss white units that have a dark brown trim. Both the tiles and units are in decent condition, if a bit uninspiring, so I don't really want the expense and upheaval of a complete kitchen overhaul.
However, I'm struggling to decide on a colour for the walls! Any suggestions would be welcome - the attached picture shows it as it was when we moved in (it's a bit more cluttered now ), but the only real change is that the white table is gone and we have a kitchen island (an Ikea white/wooden one) in the middle now. We have reasonably high (10ft) Victorian ceilings and big windows, but the building opposite blocks out some of the natural light.
Try a colour with a little yellow in it. This will enhance the colour of your teal kitchen tiles and also the work with the warmth of the wood. Little Greene Stock (mid-deep-dark) are lovely warm tints with yellow in them. They're also quite fresh-looking whilst still being quite subtle in tone.
Thanks - I hadn't thought of going yellowy!
