The cheery paint color (Martha Stewart Sesame Tahini, available at Lowe's,) and the inexpensive matchstick blinds make the area appear twice its size. We also spray painted the chairs so that they blend right in.

Working with a neutral color palette allows you to use pops of color to accentuate elements in the room. For example, we placed cookbooks and kitchen accessories in the corners of the countertops to add depth to the space.

The homeowners were so happy with the finished project that they bought a new dishwasher and microwave to complete the new look. Mission accomplished!
