Creamy is an excellent light-based neutral for kitchen cabinets against repose gray walls. In addition, the greige notes of the wall color can activate the yellow tints in Creamy for a richer texture.

When you choose off-whites like this for cabinets, you get the visual effect of brightening a space up by reflecting more light. This superb color can work for any design theme or accent.

Make your kitchen feel bright and airy with a dull Repose Gray for the walls and a subtle tinted Classic Light Buff for the cabinet color.

Contented by Sherwin Williams

You can use a powerful color like Contented for the cabinet color to go with Repose gray walls. Contented is a blended gray with saturated green pigments that give this major color power.

The mid-tone richness means that your cabinets have saturated tinting. However, it gives your kitchen a soothing, earthy nuance that affects the undernotes in Repose for walls that look slightly yellow or yellow-green.

Museum Piece by Benjamin Moore

Museum Piece is a versatile neutral shade of gray with rich brown pigments that give this color a darker earthy nuance. 

A few shades darker than Repose Gray, Museum Piece can give your walls a cool, yellow tone that offsets the denseness of the cabinets. 

Arctic Seal by Benjamin Moore

If you’re looking for a bold, modern way to decorate a kitchen with Repose gray walls, choose a dark cabinet color like Arctic Seal.

For contrast against Repose gray walls, choose a cabinet color like Lavender Wash. This cool, faintly pigmented tone of gray has traces of silver and lavender.
