Inspiration for my palette:
With the re-do of my kitchen cabinets to a soft white, I knew that this large sunny room was the one where I could take the most risks. Inspired by the different options of the beautiful veggies and fruits that we eat (but probably a bit more so by the delicious red wine we drink), this "berry" shade was a perfect balance between elegant yet modern and different. The warm tones look gorgeous in the morning and evening sunlight especially, and it has inspired many lovely wine tasting parties since!
Colors used in my room

Tips for using color successfully
There's little reward without some risk. It wasn't easy for me to convince my husband to paint our kitchen "purple"... and there were times I second-guessed it as well. But even my most conservative friends gush about the color of our kitchen walls.
