Paint Color for Open Kitchen?

Good Questions

Q: We have an open concept living room, breakfast area, and kitchen. We would like to keep the darker tan color of the living room, but repaint the kitchen. I am leaning toward a muted aqua, like in the fabric for the curtains. Will that be too much of a contrast with the tan living room? I am particularly concerned about the corner by the table where the two colors will meet. (We will be removing that extra cabinet there.) Thanks!
