Kitchen Accent Wall Color

Hazel Writes: Hi! I have a 26ft long wall in my kitchen and a 12ft wide wall at the end of the room. The other walls have medium oak units, with black-grey worktops and black-grey flooring. It is north-facing, so there is not a lot of natural light. Could you recommend a color that won’t look like ‘too much’ on the long wall? Maybe a contrasting/accent color on the end wall? Thanks.
