need help with kitchen ideas

We just bought a new house, and the kitchen is ALL white.
Cupboards, walls, and trim...even white tileboard halfway up the walls. It makes it a really nice bright room, and it is a good size room but too much white!! I want to add some color to it.
Here's the thing. There are two stained glass windows between the kitchen and the home office. They have a blue color (in the glass) outlining them. So I wanted to bring more blue into the kitchen. I would prefer to do something with the tileboard on the bottom half of the walls, and then maybe add a border along the top or something. Can I paint the tileboard in some kind of 'marble' type look? I think going solid blue would darken the room too much and I'm trying not to do that. Or maybe just paint the 'lines' between the 'tiles' on the tileboard in a blue? Any ideas or opinions? I am also thinking of painting the cupboard frames the same color to tie it together. yes? no? help!! please!!
Thank you for any input.

Thumbs up

Painting the cupboard outlines blue would be a good idea. Another way to bring blue into the area is in your accessories. Maybe a blue vase with flowers? Or some blue plates and cups?

Have fun!
