What Color Should I Paint Kitchen Cabinets?

Good Questions

Q: I just bought an apartment and the kitchen is in good condition but not my taste. The counter is a jade-like granite and I'm not in love with it but I think replacing it would just be too expensive. The cabinets are a good quality and I believe they are cherry but they really seem to clash with the counter (not even mentioning the back splash). The kitchen is open to the living room and I wanted to paint an airy pale blue with white trim and extend that into the kitchen area. Any suggestions on what I could paint the cabinets to tie these colors together? I was thinking maybe a two toned paint — one darker on
bottom, lighter on top.
