To Paint or not to Paint...

that is a silly question. Of course I plan on painting. So we added the back splash which has really brightened the kitchen. There is still a bit of the wall that is dark brown (Chocolate Curl by Olympic). It looks okay but I am thinking something lighter but not sure if I want to go with a pale blue like this (China Blue by Benjamin Moore) or a creamy white like Sailcloth (Valspar)

or something else. I have the China Blue in my dining area which is open to the kitchen. It actually is a bit lighter than shown here. Believe it or not we have no where in town to get Benjamin Moore paint. A crime, isn't it? We had two places but one closed and the other stopped carrying it. There is a great guy at Lowe's who can color match it so I'm not too worried.

So let me know your thoughts. Take a look at the kitchen with the back splash - you'll also see the paint that is there now - the brown. The area that I want to paint is around the windows (that part touches the white cabinets) & a section of wall that is about 2 feet wide (you can see that here). Should I go with a pale blue or a creamy white? Or something else totally?

I will probably go get a few samples tomorrow & paint an area China Blue and see what I like but I look forward to hearing some other thoughts.

If you love that color blue, go for it. If you are worried about too much blue, maybe mix the paint with a little white to lighten it up. That way it isn't too matchy. Can't wait to see what you decide to do.

That's exactly what I was thinking. We have alot of blue in the house which I love but I don't want it to be too much so I thought about mixing it with white. Thanks!
