Kitchen | I'd choose blue instead of red. Bead board lends a traditional touch to kitchens and bathrooms. Cut holes in the boards or sheets for outlets, phone jacks, and other wall necessities. For a modern take on bead board, try wider plank paneling, which dresses up the island in this fresh kitchen.
The ceiling is painted "haint blue" as a playful nod to the old Southern superstition that says blue porch ceilings keep evil spirits at bay. A fan keeps the area cool on warm Southern days, and curtains add privacy to this outdoor space. I thought the blue was to keep the stinging insects away....(I wrote non of this)<---- Ditto, but love the color
