Dear AT,

We're renovating our little 8' x 8' kitchen (design sketch below) to match the rest of our very mid-century townhouse, and are stuck with some color questions.

We've chosen Ikea cabinets (in Nexus Yellow-Brown (photo below) and a bright white Corian counter top, but we're stumped about what colors to use for the wall tile and floor...

We were thinking of using white tile with white grout on the walls, but we're just not sure whether this will be an opportunity lost for a nice splash of color.

We have no idea what to put on the floor.

The contractors arrive in one week. Any advice?

Thanks! Christopher
