Q: I've just moved into a gorgeous 1920s Mediterranean-style bungalow. The house must have been renovated in the 1960s or 1970s, if the avocado green and harvest gold tile in the bathroom is any indication. Thankfully, it isn't the bathroom that's keeping me awake at night... yet. The kitchen, however, gives me denim-colored nightmares with it's denim-blue and chrome countertops and painfully flesh toned walls. New counters aren't in the budget just yet, but new paint definitely is. The cabinets are honey-toned wood. Oh, Apartment Therapy, what colors can I paint the walls to improve these awful eyesores?
