It's Not Easy Being a Green Kitchen

OK, here's my sad little attempt at using Photoshop to play around with the colors for our kitchen cabinets:



My first idea was to paint them cream with an inset of copper-finish metal ceiling tiles, and use the same tile for the backsplash. But I ordered samples, and the tiles just didn't look as good in person.

I want to add molding to the flat faces of the cabinet, and now I'm thinking of painting the insets green to match the green-and-cream toile wallpaper I found for the kitchen. But what type of molding? And will that just be too much green for a room people will be expected to eat in? Keep in mind I also have green Fiestaware.
