Give your kitchen a look as delicious as your favorite dessert with a cheerful pastel palette. Custom-painted appliances and two-tone cabinetry introduce an element of surprise, but by leaving everything else white, the space isn't overwhelming. (Photo: Deborah Whitlaw Llewellyn)
Dark color schemes shrink an already small space and make it less inviting. Use soft shades on kitchen cabinets and natural light to visually expand a small room. BUT... if you want a warm cozy kitchen and yours is small, then go for the warm wood tones - sometimes getting what you love means breaking the rules!
You must know that what you want is yours the moment you ask. You must have complete and utter faith. If you had placed an order from a catalogue you would relax, know you are going to receive what you ordered, and get on with your life. ~Rhonda Byrne, "The Secret" p49
