I was brought up with depression era folks at home and tend to find reuse and value in most things. I've up and down-sized a few times moving around the country and one thing I've learned is to make thoughtful decisions about purging. I tend to find myself looking for something I gave away to charity and not believing I could have done it! What was I thinking!

That is amazing how similar your kitchen is to the madmen kit. Love that show!

A little "lipstick and rouge" can make a big difference:

You can paint the walls an ivory color and add a mexican, greek or italian looking tile backsplash (incorporating the blue like you meant it to be there) and add some other wrought iron elements.
- or for a sort of mod/country look, paint the cabinets with a silver color Hammarite, can or spray. It looks a little like a galvanized metal texture. Then you will need to change out the pulls and hinges. Your minimalist backsplash would look fine with this and the walls could be ivory again.

Good luck!
