Use the 60-30-10 Rule

Gray-green paint on cabinetry provides a unifying 60 percent base color in this kitchen. Blue, which accounts for 30 percent, highlights the room's center island. Red paint on the dining table and yellow on the cabinet doors' window muntins add cheery accents for the last 10 percent.
