This stunning painted kitchens by Lewis Alderson featured in Beautiful Kitchens magazine and combines a pale warm grey with the darkest shade of blue grey - there's a larder painted in a shade of aubergine too. http://www.kitchensourcebook.co.uk/2015/05/18/kitchen-of-the-week-painted-classic/
Have included this because of the layering. Need to see the rug in person to know if the colours wld work. There's a lot going on in this room and it all contributes to the soft and cosy feeling. Note the lamps in the window and the variation in textures.
