What Colors To Unify Chaotic Kitchen?

Good Questions

Q: We just bought our first house and are super excited to start making it our home. Our first project on the list is to update the kitchen to reflect our own style. The oak kitchen cabinets are quite boring, and we hate the tile backsplash (bluish, tan, brown), faux granite counter tops, and black appliances... but unfortunately our budget at the moment just allows for us to paint the cabinets and walls. We were thinking a white or gray for the cabinets, but  are lost on a color for the walls.

All the other colors are all over the place, and we want something to calm it down a little. We eventually plan to put in a butcher block counter top, some more neutral tile backsplash, and hardwood floors to match the rest of our house. Any ideas on paint colors? (The table pictured will not be there). Thanks, people!
