Distinctive Rooms October 18, 2018 Paul Miller Bold black and white graphics and contemporary accents create a striking contrast in this classic 1950s colonial home. Generous natural light not only makes for better daytime task lighting, it is written into our DNA on some level to equate a sunny kitchen with comfort, joy, and welcome. In this kitchen, we doubled down on the sunniness of the space by balancing a light and cheerful yellow with bright white trim and medium greige cabinets. Our client wanted to introduce pink while keeping the design universal. We incorporated this gorgeous pale pink with soft grays, browns, and neutrals to round out the palette.
