Kitchen Color

Here's what our kitchen looks like right now (from a few different angles).



The plan is to remove the two wavy pieces between the cabinets (we're also going to remove that single cabinet that's to the right of Dave in the second photo). I'm also VERY excited to have two lights hardwired to the ceiling to illuminate the countertops. We'll put one of the pendant fixtures in where the chandelier is hanging right now, and the other one centered in front of the single widow by the oven.

We're pretty sure that we're going to paint the cabinets white, but we're trying to figure out what color to paint the bead board (which basically makes up all the white parts that you see in the photos...besides the molding around the windows). I love the look of an all white kitchen, but it also might be nice to add some color to bring out the lovely molding around the windows. What do you guys think? Any insight?
Below are some inspiration photos :)

I agree with Ali O, I think if you paint the cabinets white, then the knobs should add a splash of color. Lookin forward to seeing what you decide!

oddly enough... i've become a VERY big fan of neutrals... browns and whites... I think I would stick with those... and then you can splash colors either inside a cabinet or with accents...
