Small rooms or even an alcove or niche in a room can be made to be quite special. These new home owners will eventually be changing the 1990 kitchen, but for now, it's got white cabinets, backsplash, appliances and a white tile floor with bottle green and black chicklet accents. "White walls, right?" the homeowner asked-- well, more of a "duh" statement to me. "Absolutely not" I told her, and steered them to Farrow and Ball's No. 93, Studio Green.
"Everyone told me not to do it", the homeowner said after the fact, "But I went with you and it's now one of our favorite spots!"
