kitchen colors

i have picked fairway oaks as one color i like for my kitchen walls. My granite is giallo napoleon and I am looking for a complimentary color to match. Also if i go with fairway oaks benjamin moore 1075, i might want to paint a darker contrasting color under the penisula. What would you suggest? Thank you marianne


Here are a few suggestions that could match the granite counter top. I hope this helps.

Benjamin Moore

Blair Gold HC-22

Summerdale gold HC-17

Princeton Gold HC-14

For the bold contrasting color for the peninsula here are three options.

Onondaga Clay 1204

Warm Sienna 1203

Livingston Gold HC-16


Here is another recommended idea you can use with your colors. You can paint your walls with one of the two suggested reds above. As for the peninsula you can paint it a darker shade than the granite counter top (Livingston Gold).

Or you can paint the peninsula the deep rich red to contrast the counter tops
and paint the walls with the matching granite counter top paint color. A shade lighter is more preferred than the granite counter top color, but still in the same family. The Fairway Oaks should also work for the wall color.

Experiment with these color combinations and have fun with it. It takes time to select the right colors for your kitchen. Please note sample all colors before making a commitment. Also lighting conditions, computer screen monitors, and fan deck color swatches will vary with your kitchen's environmental elements.

Good luck with your project.
