I've just painted my kitchen f&b skimming stone. It's a lovely pale gray/cream colour. It looks nice on all the walls until I did the one next to my cupboards. My cupboards are a cream but I think the paint has now made them look nicotine yellow! I've put a picture on my profile. Could you see what you think. Maybe I'm better painting that wall a colour as opposed to a neutral or am I stressing over nothing? Thanks
Arghh... I thought so. Typical after finally deciding on one colour and lots of indecision. The old colour was natural wicker by dulux which was a pinky creamy cream but after 6 years of it plus having it in all other rooms I got bored and fancied a change. That's the only wall where it's directly next to a cupboard as I don't have any wall cupboards so there would be worktop and tiles in between on the other walls. Do you think I could get away with painting that wall a completely different colour ie green/purple and going with this colour everywhere else or won't it look right with my tiles either?

Not sure which one is the green (links to a specific page seem to struggle on that site), if it's #110051, I'd go for matching the very dark purple (second stripe shown in the sample, very narrow line). I think with a light tile colour, light cabinets and other walls really light, a dark dramatic colour would look great, and hopefully help balance out the nicotine effect you mention.
Would love to see what you go with. Please post an update when done.
Runs with, thank you for the help. Yes that was the wallpaper. I think your right. Now I need to persuade dh to let me do a purple wall and choose which blinds to go for the windows. I'm tempted as we have French doors and 4 other windows to go for the ones which go inside the UPvC casement to avoid long cords etc but theyre plain and boring!
