What about curtains to hide the bottom 2 shelves? Tiny curtain rod suspended from cup hooks. Use the fabric to add texture, color, coordinate with the space you move into from the entry hall. Agree with the suggestion to paint/cover the backs of the shelves. Wonderful space!

Grrrrrr! I lost this in the middle of commenting. Please forgive if I'm repeating myself. Consider adding some raised trimwork to the cabinet doors when you rehab them to give some depth and visual interest. Your boyfriend cooks? Get the stove! Get the stove! ;-) Is there any way you can get both the stove and perhaps faux stone laminate countertop? If a new stove is stainless, you could put faux stainless film in the fridge. (Lots of faux stuff here, but save for the day you update a kitchen in your new house.) Please post an "after" photo when your projects are finished -- inspire us all!

I vote for new fabric on the chairs, with padding replaced if needed. With my dining room chairs, I selected two coordinating fabrics -- one fabric for the two armchairs and the other fabric for the remaining chairs.

Navy with high-gloss white trim, perhaps?

For the salmon/brown, would very light teal work? You could have ocean-themed accents (although I am not a big fan of theme rooms, so just accents, not coral-reef shower curtain!). The previous poster's suggestion of navy with the light olive is intriguing; I say give it a go, perhaps by painting navy on poster board and propping it up by the tile (instead of having to cover a sample painted on the wall). Also, take a color wheel and determine what colors are opposite the colors of your tile; this frequently prompts a good idea. The shiny tiles are great -- I wouldn't rush to remodel!
