I painted my family room Olympic Beach House which is a light blue with a twinge of gray. My kitchen overlooks this room so what color should I use for the kitchen? I have zero decorating skills! My cabinets are a dark mahogany (sp?) Any advice?

If you don't want to go blue, you don't have to.
Ivory or Cream would look quite lovely with the mahogany cabinets too.
But of course you have not mentioned what color your appliances are, which is rather important. If you have stainless steel, the blue/grey would really look neat, and SMS has given you some good choices to consider.

What color is your countertop? Any tile work? What colors are present in your public spaces. All give cues. Once the color is decided, view a sample in your kitchen's lighting conditions. This should reveal it's undertones and also help to determine the best hue value.
