Clei Italy makes all these things, and they are available here via various dealers. Many colors and fabrics. Not cheap but not terrible either. Signature Leather in NJ is the cheapest in the NY area.

Open shelving is a nightmare for anybody who cooks. Stuff gets grimey quickly.

Move the microwave, paint the brick wall a bright cream or other light color to brighten it up, with dark window frames. I think the best bet for the cabinets is to decoupage them. You can use parchment, a common art deco solution, in square paper bricks, or you can use paper from Kate's paperie, or you can simply get a roll of good wallpaper with a design that's simple and elegant. If you paint, you need to sand; I suggest Benjamin Moore metalic to get a little light, followed by a resin polyurethane to really seal them. DONT just put on paint and DON'T just put on sticky paper. Both of these will look like junk after about three cleanings. (Also if you want a solid, epoxy paint is not a bad way to go).
