Mmmm... I love my new kitchen.
I was inspired by this:
It just feels clean and crisp. We used Benjamin Moore's Natura Paint, semi-gloss finish, in "Clear Skies." We liked that Natura is zero-VOC. I don't mind so much for other rooms, but for the kitchen it seemed like a good idea. And we went with the semi-gloss so it'd be a little easier to keep clean.
I think it makes the room feel bigger, brighter and fresher. Now we just need some curtains on those bare windows!
