Q: I am in the process of updating my 70's kitchen. I have already removed the wallpaper and I now have a white kitchen, with slightly beige countertops and a grayish floor which I don't plan to change soon. The cabinets in the second pic will be removed, to make room for a breakfast area. I need suggestions for a wall color — I would like something fresh and sunny, maybe a green or a blue.

The kitchen is facing west, so it gets afternoon light. I need advice on a color that would match the wall leading to the kitchen (not shown) which is painted Benjamin Moore Autumn. Also, do you have any ideas for a very inexpensive backsplash?
