NY Good Questions: What Color Yellow Should I Paint The Walls With?

Pin it button big

Dear AT,

I am closing on my very first townhouse in a few weeks and I'd like to paint the living room navy blue and the kitchen yellow.

I love the KWID's Imperial Trellis wallpaper, but it isn't very budget friendly.

I'd either leave the cabinets white or paint them cream.

All of the appliances are fairly new and so I won't be replacing them with stainless steel appliances so unfortunately they'll have to stay white!...

What kind of yellow should I use for the walls and cabinets that would match with the vibrant blue living room?

As a side note I think I'll later upgrade the counter tops from the faux wood laminate to a white carrera marble or black granite for that strong contrast I love.

I also would like to change the back splash tiles to the Solistone Piano tiles.

Please help!

Thanks! Tasha
