Color psychology in the kitchen

Normally I am partial to all-white kitchens that bring in color through the accents, accessories, rugs and fixtures, but lately, I am really enjoying the use of bolder color choices in more substantial ways in the kitchen.  So I naturally find myself wondering, if I were to stray from my tried-and-true white cabinetry and white… Continue reading Color psychology in the kitchen
