It was totally crazy looking at first, and drastic, but it looks wonderful now that it's finished. Definitely a transformative color. I enjoy the jewel box effect it provides for all of my bright dishes, my roommate likes it much better, and I think that it will go very well with the new floor. Very happy with this most recent finished part of the room.

more kitchen painting
I sort of feel like, if everything is cleared out for one painting project in a space, you may as well do a bunch more. So while I was painting the kitchen cabinets, I also changed to color on the wall. I love the idea of a yellow kitchen in theory, and it was fun for a bit, but in practice, in this space, with they type of light the room got, it made everything look a bit dingy. So it seemed like a good time to try something new. I have been pinning rooms painted with Benjamin Moore's deep space for what seems like years, it's a rich velvety looking dark gray, and it seemed like the perfect time to try it out. I was thinking that with the bright white on the cabinets, the contrast would make everything seem brighter and cleaner.
