Color Advice for Traditional Kitchen?

Q: I need some help picking a color for my dark cabinet but light-abundant kitchen! This is a fairly traditional house and we have decided to keep the original oak trim all around the house. However, I hate this color and would appreciate any suggestions on how we can brighten and modernize it a little (no to painting the cabinets as they are great quality and new). The rest of our main floor is painted in gray, gray/blue and whites. Thanks!
