Using Paint to Expand a Corner

Austin

It's such a simple idea, but we can't stop thinking about the gorgeous painted corner in Karen's Cozy and Cheery Cherrywood Home. The corner in her kitchen was transformed into a bright and modern spot in her home using paint...

Taking the advice of an architect friend, Karen painted every part of the wall when she decided to add a bright and modern green accent color to her kitchen. Painting the molding, the doors, the hinges---everything, the wall really becomes unified as an accent, expanding the small space. Not painting the architectural details another color helps add to the minimalist-feel to the area.
