Wall colours in a white gloss kitchen

Bought a house recently that has quite a bland white gloss kitchen with wood effect laminate worktop. The long-term goal is to replace it but in the short-term I want to refresh the space by painting the walls. I'm unsure what colour to paint it. I'm a fan of dark colours in living rooms and bedroom, and am easily drawn to them on a colour chart. The same cannot be said for lighter shades which is a challenge as I feel that I should keep this space much lighter. I want to keep the ceiling white as to 'hide' the spotlights (I feel any other colour would cause them to stand out). Do I paint one colour on all walls? Use a combination of two maybe?

The space functions as an open plan living space day-to-day with kitchen, dining area and a sofa.
