"warm hues (reds, oranges, yellows) play tricks on perception. Warm colors will tend to pull a wall towards the eye. If you paint a wall bright red, for example, that wall will seem closer to you than a white wall. ...painting a side wall red can make a room feel too narrow, but painting an end wall in a long, narrow room will make the room feel more balanced in size."
Designer Gail Drury combined traditional sage-green accents and ivory cabinets, along with contemporary materials and conveniences, to bring an updated look and feel to this charming bungalow home. An eclectic mix of wood finishes in the island and barstools further add to the kitchen's old-fashioned appeal.
