Paint for the Kitchen

Okay, we are actually finally getting somewhere on the house we are remodeling. The sheetrock guys are here!!!! EEEEEEEE! So now I have to pick out paint colors. I am kinda stuck on the kitchen. The house is a very country-style farm house. We will have wood laminate floors and wood cabinets. The outside is natural rough-cut cypress siding with a tin roof. I am wanting the floors to be a darker color and the cabinets will be a light oak. Not sure about the countertops yet, but I am thinking of a granite-style formica (can't afford the actual granite) in maybe a green marble. The kitchen will probably be decorated with John Deere accessories. LIke I said, we are country folk. I have a green utensil holder, a metal sign advertising tractors, and several white dishes of various types with John Deere emblems on them. I am trying to figure out what color to paint the kitchen. I don't want to go with the actual JD green or yellow because they are both really bright. Anyone have ideas?

My current kitchen is bright yellow ... it's a bit much. I'm renting, so I'll just live it with ;)
A pale yellow or light sage might coordinate with your accessories. If you have lots of color elsewhere in your kitchen, a simple shade of warm brown could be a good fit. Maybe a neutral hue you could pick out of the granite you'll be using?

I like the idea of a light yellow. It will have to be lighter than the yellow we used on our daughter's room where we are now. There is this yellow glow that emanates from her room LOL. And I thought I WAS getting a light yellow. Paint look so different on the walls instead of in the can. It needs to be a very pale yellow. I also like the idea of the sage green. It would have to be just the right shade to not clash with the bright green, but it could work. That's a color we had considered for my younger daughter's room, so maybe I could do them both that color and that's one less color to pick :)
