A bold color such as aqua creates a strong visual impact in this kitchen. To avoid a busy look, architect Mark Maresca paired the strong hue with black accents, creating a crisp and clean contrast. If you are considering a bold paint color, make sure it's one you love. Then head to your paint store to have them mix a custom hue to match your favorite shade. The floor, painted by South Carolina artist Jeff Renow, provides a graphic foundation for the colorful cabinets and sleek island.
