Color/style flow opinions needed

I'm remodeling the entire downstairs of my house and just opened up the wall between the living room and kitchen to put a little breakfast bar on what's a half-wall now. In the bedrooms I'm doing a dark green on the bottom 32 in. of each wall and a lighter gray on the top portion with a stained, wooden chair rail around. The living room will be the same. I would like to paint the walls in the kitchen just a solid light yellow/brown from floor to ceiling without the chair rails. Will this create a design flow problem considering that you can now see into the kitchen from the living room? Should I continue the chair rail and two-tone color scheme into the kitchen as well?

I realize it's all about personal preference, but I'd love to hear others thoughts on this. I don't want this to be an unpleasant contrast that people see when they walk in my home.

Thanks in advance.

That says it all There is no right or wrong when it comes to colors. I'd go ahead and paint as planned and if you decide later the contrast between rooms is too much - it isn't that big of a deal to change it. Paint colors make a big impact for a small amount of money, don't be afraid to experiment!
