What Color Should I Paint My Kitchen/Dining Room?

Good Questions

Q: We're moving into a new apartment and want to repaint the kitchen/dining room. At present, it's a fairly neutral griege but I just don't find it that interesting and would like something more lively. The cabinets are white (we don't want to paint those) and the counters very dark gray granite. The floor is dark brown. The room has...... big windows but doesn't get much direct sunlight. We like bright, dramatic colors but I'm not sure which way to go here. I like blues/greens but would these be unflattering in a dining area? Is it better to stick with warm colors like yellow or orange? Thanks for your help!
