Color Inspiration: We choose this shade of blue for the walls shortly after purchasing the saffron-orange cabinet. They're cheerful while still soothing and it looks great when contrasted with bright shots of color.

Color Inspiration continued: We do a lot of cooking and entertaining, so we spend a lot of time in the kitchen and what seems like many, many hours washing dishes. Instead of staring at a blank wall while standing at the sink we hung up a print by Anne Silber we'd picked up at a prop house sale. That was the beginning of our landscape collection. The other pieces are from thrift stores, etsy.com and the tiny watercolor Suzy purchased on a family trip to Italy after her high school graduation.
Our cookbook collection inadvertently brings a colorful punch to the kitchen. The vintage and contemporary tomes provide both graphic color and culinary inspiration.
Colors Used: Paint: Behr, "Rivers Edge", (510O-3)
Color Tip: As in many homes, crowds seem to gather in our kitchen - we like to think that this is not only because that's where you'll find the host and hostess scurrying around, but because it is a bright and inviting space. The color you live with should be happy and make you glad to be home.
