Help Needed with Red Formica and Knotty Pine Kitchen!

We recently bought a mountain cabin built in 1958. The kitchen needs some help. Remodeling is not in a budget at the moment as we have to address more important structural issues.

But we would like to give this kitchen a cosmetic uplift and be respectful to the original knotty pine (or some of it).

Thinking about painting the upper cabinets (all or just a more recent upper storage built-ins?), the wood trim around windows, and the walls. We would liked to leave the lower cabinets and wood paneling as is. We would relocate the 'pedestal-fridge'.

Need some help with paint colors. Should we paint the upper cabinets and the dry-wall the same color or different? What are the color suggestions that would balance the red counter top and knotty pine?

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
