Currently my kitchen is gray, on gray, on white, on gray.  I love the simplicity of it, but in between the rain and the rain, I’m looking for some sunshine!  I’m looking to add some color to my kitchen without changing the color of my kitchen.  Changing up the accessories in a room can instantly alter the mood of a space without a major overhaul.

color … vineyard kitchen

Inspiration for a room design can come from anywhere.  A piece of artwork, a photograph, textiles… a vacation? I recently completed a kitchen design plan that was inspired by my client’s tour of a Kelowna Vineyard.  With this design the client wanted to recapture the warm, earthy, traditional feeling of the vineyards with a touch of spice! Working with the existing countertops, Abingdon Putty (HC-99) was selected for refinishing the kitchen cabinets, Olive Branch (2143-30) for the walls, and Spanish Red (CC-92) as an accent colour.  To tie it all together this oversized ‘Suzani’ type print, ‘Varenna, Harvest’ (www.tonicliving.com)was chosen for window treatments.Paint: www.benjaminmoore.com
