What Color Would You Paint This Kitchen?

Good Questions

Q: My fiance and I are under contract on our first home, and we are having a difficult time deciding on a paint color for the kitchen and living space. (The electric turquoise has got to go. It's even brighter in real life.) It is an open floor plan, and the kitchen and living space are basically one room.

The cabinets are a very very dark black-brown, and the bamboo floors are quite light. The main source of natural light is the glass patio door, which faces north. We currently have some dark IKEA furniture (Expedit bookcase, coffee table, etc.) and a mint green MCM sofa, which will be going in the living area for now.
