What Color Should I Paint My Kitchen?

Q: I rented a new apartment a few months ago in an older home with great charm and potential. The bedroom, bathroom and living room were taken care of immediately, but somehow the kitchen has been neglected and doesn't feel like it's part of the same home. I'm unsure of what colors will work.

It was already painted this dull yellow when I moved in, which makes it feel dumpy and not very cheerful. I am pretty sure I can paint it however I choose. I love anything with a botanical / alchemy feeling, so that's my inspiration. I may even build a banquette by the bay window area. My house is mostly neutral tones; the bedroom is mint green and the living room is beige, so I was wondering what palette I should go with for the kitchen. I'm assuming I can't paint the cupboards, so it needs to be a color that can work well with wood tones and in natural and artificial light. Suggestions?
