Take a look at this galley kitchen. Looks pretty ordinary, right? It has nice light, and a bold wash of color… and then, turn your head. That’s an enormous, gilt-framed painting on the wall, smack dab in the middle of this otherwise modest kitchen. Wow! What a statement! What do you think of this?

That is a serious statement in this kitchen, and I kind of like it. I’m not saying I would do it in my own space, but it shows a sense of drama and playfulness that I really appreciate in kitchen design.

Also? This kitchen is painted in a pretty fantastic color: Porter’s Roasted Red Pepper. How great of a name is that?
