There is also dark, kind of speckled granite or marble on the counters and backsplash that can’t be changed. It’s a very old beautiful house but hasn’t been updated much. De-clutter, clean, clean, clean and embrace the country pine and go with that style. Not only does it change the texture of the room but how you look and or feel when in that room! Have a jpg photo (web appropriate size) on your hard drive (or media card). See what she likes- we are helping to choose paint for someone that is resistant to change.

I am not much into bright colors and consider my style casual. My countertops have black and brown with some cream colors in it. My appliances are black with oak cabinets, beige countertops, and a dark blue floor. Now, for some reason, aqua is so popular right now you might get way too many of those. I saw some beautiful one that were made of quilting material sewn in squares. You could also use the tan as you already have four colors – blue, tan, oak, gray.

The sink, dishwasher, stove, and microwave are on one side and the laundry closet and refrigerator are on the opposite wall.

The work tops and cupboards are oak and the tiles are black and cream. I can’t seem to find a color for the that would go with this combination.
