This kitchen has a grey granite with cream walls. It looks excellent, because they used the multi-colored back splash to break up the starkness of the white walls. Perhaps something like this may fit your somewhat dark kitchen.

Thanks

I think it is better if you apply a light color like blue or white, I guess it really looks good and compatible. You can choose either of them.

Since you have only 2 colors in the kitchen (yellow and purplish-gray), I would recommend you to add a new color to the scheme. The best-looking color schemes have 3 or 4 colors.

My suggestion is sagey-green - it will coordinate beautifully with both your cabinets and countertops/tile. Try Svelte Sage (Sherwin Williams) - it has enough gray in it to work with the countertops/tile, and enough green to complement the yellow of the cabinets.

In modern technology, paint is classified in three major categories because of differing performance requirements: architectural paints, commercial finishes, and industrial coatings. Architectural paints are air-drying materials applied by brush or spray to architectural and structural surfaces and forms for decorative and protective purposes.

As you've said. Your kitchen is small then you must use a light color paint to feel it more spacious. And I agree with them, use a white or off white. Good luck on decorating your home.
