Thinking of revamping the kitchen. It's currently F&B cooking apple green. Units are cream but more yellow than cream. Worktops are black granite. I can't get an accurate photo of unit colour best I can is attached.

no point in judging colours on screen as every screen and camera device has a different colour balance and there is no way to tell what thre settings differences would be between our screens and your camera.

It is easy enough to unscrew your smallest drawer front or cupboard door and take it with you to a paint store that offers colour matching.

don't get an exact match though - calculate the exact colour code for the units then choose a custom paint shade that is 2 or 3 steps darker or lighter in intensity.

alternatively, if you can also take along a sample of your flooring to scan for the dominant colour of that, or if there is a dominant colour in your splashback (if you have one) then you can use a colour wheel to identify the locations in the circular spectrum for those two colours - pleasing colour combinations for three colours tend to arise when the 3 colours form a symmetrical triangle on a colour wheel.

I recommend dulux kitchen paint as it is robust enough to withstand the much greater wear and tear that kitchen walls get, and can be mixed to any shade. much more sensible than restricting yourself to the 100 or so shades currently considered fashionable by F&B when there are millions of colours in the spectrum.

Floor is cream tiles (as in the pic) and splash back is just a small stand up and is black granite too.

You can have any colour with that combination.

Go for a muted shade of green or blue maybe mix and match two colours for different walls.
