We are redoing our kitchen. Painting previous wooden cupboards light and the walls a light brown. I previously had a red feature wall but now not sure if I should? Can you look and give me your opinion? Need to decide today!!!

You are painting the walls light brown? Is there a reason for that?

The wall colour is a match of the tiles on the splashback (I had it scanned). It's really light (it's been painted on in the photo). Do I get rid of the feature wall and just have it all the same colour or bring colour in?

I wouldn't have a feature wall personally and that colour looks dark. I'd stick with some accessories in a brighter colour.

I'd always go for a bit of colour somewhere (and apparently the colour red stimulates the appetite, so good for a kitchen) otherwise I think it's in danger of seeming drab.

The kitchen Lino is a terra cotta with reds. The table cloth has reds and greens and the chair have red seat covers. I have a red frame for the kitchen that was up before and other terra cotta type wall decor if I don't do a feature wall.

Too dark for me - prefer light kitchens - suggests cleanliness - all in the mind of course.

I've gone with no feature wall smile

With all the other colour in there I think that's the right decision All. If it felt drab for you it's easier to repaint in a colour than to cover a colour over.
