Can you suggest the best colour for kitchen cupboards to match wall colour, close to Benjamin Moore's Sag Harbor Gray HC-95? I got dark countertops and dark back splash.

Marietta, the best two options for you is to return to Benjamin Moore and ask for them to help you; and head to and look through their plethora of kitchen pictures for inspiration.

I would suggest going with white. It's the safest. A couple colours I suggest would be cloud white or chantilly lace.

If the rest of the trim in your kitchen is white, then white would look nice. If your trim is varnished then a light ivory would look nice as well.

I am just headed to work. I will take a closer look at it this evening and see if there is something else that would match nicely. I have Benjamin Moore color chart home so I will look at it later.

Thank you for your suggestions, Mike, John & Mark.

My current cupboard colour is Benjamin Moore OC-32 Tapestry Beige. I am planning on adding cap mouldings on top and at the bottom of the cupboards, and thought might as well change the colour. Colour of my baseboard is BM decorator's white (CC-20).

I would recommend that you check out swiss coffee OC-45.

Thank you for the tip, Candice. That's a nice colour, too. Though mine is slightly darker, I think I am on the right colour track.

Most Benjamin Moore dealers have designers on hand that can help you to make the right choice. White is indeed the most versatile colour that goes with most colour pallets. Cloud White, Oxford White, Chantilly Lace are all very popular.
