Paint Color Choices for Open Plan Space?

Paint Color Choices for Open Plan Space?

Q: We live in a 1950s ranch and the living room, hallway and kitchen all sort of flow into one space. When we moved in three years ago, we removed wallpaper and a border from the kitchen and painted it red. It seemed like a bit improvement at the time but now I am sick of the color (Behr Roasted Pepper) and especially hate where it meets the hallway/living room.

The hallway and living room are Behr Quincy Tan which I like but does not look good with the kitchen cabinets. Additionally, the backsplash in the kitchen has a few random "fruit-motif" decals that are not removable - a large image behind the stove and then several others on 4X4 inch tiles throughout the backsplash. I guess I have two questions: what would be a good color to paint the entire space and how can I cover up those decals? Painting the cabinets or any other major kitchen renovations/upgrades are not an option although I am open to an inexpensive option for re-doing the backsplash. Thanks!
