Hi Annie,
I'll concur with some of the previous posters that suggest brushed chrome/pewter hardware on the cabinets and that pale gray walls will balance the color of the oak (tone it down if you will). I would also suggest Formica Quarstone in Smoke for your countertops - it mimics slate in texture and color and is an inexpensive and transformative. These easy changes will update your kitchen and give you a natural looking foundation and allow you to bring in pops of other color that will tie in with the color schemes of adjacent rooms. I think it is prudent to work with what you've got and make the best of it before you sink the huge investment into a kitchen re-model. If the appliances need to be replaced, you'd want to go with stainless steel finishes. I new sink and fixture should be chosen at the time you replace the countertops. Good luck - and have fun making your home your own!
