    Lemon? Nice contrast but easy on the eye.

    With a pale grey you could be bold with the colour of the walls, depending on how much natural light there is, worktop colour etc.

    I went for Crown "Lolo plum" with my painted ivory units. The contrast is very effective (a few thought it wouldn't work), but there was a real risk that a colour that dark could be overpowering.

    We had a pale grey kitchen fitted with similar quartz worktop that you mention. I went with a bright crimson paint on splash back areas and one wall, then white walls. Really pleased with the effect.

    2. It certainly isn't stupid to link to your similar thread, as that contains further details that may aid helpful replies.

    3. You do seem to have a habit of "losing" many of your earlier threads, and starting another, meaning regular posters find it difficult to help you. I'm sure that's got nothing to do with being stupid, but it may well have something to do with lack of manners.

    4. I await your next three identical threads - on fish, roses, or kitchens - with baited breath. ... and will still try to help you where I can.

    5. Politely.....
