    Default OT: Paint Color Advice

    I just painted my kitchen bright white with bright red accents (baseboard,

    molding, cover

    plates). I'm not sure I like it as it might be too white. My husband says our

    kitchen now

    looks sterile and not warm and inviting. I want to keep the red accents - any

    suggestions on

    what color to paint the walls? We usually get a a Home Depot gift card for the

    holidays and I

    figure I'll use it for new paint. Thanks in advance.

    Maybe get a very pale yellow added to warm the color up. Nothing that

    by itself would looke 'yellow', but it would take the brightness out of

    the white, and it's a warm inviting color.

    I agree. I painted our kitchen/great room area a color called tea cookie (a light warm yellow color, but not too yellow) and the color could probably be looked up at Home Depot........we used Behr paint. Anyway it goes great with my red couch and the other red accents I have around the room. Even a nice light beige might go well with the red. Kelly

    check out the program &#39;semi home made&#39; she has a white kitchen and just changes the assories for each show ..

    spring bring in hearts in various shades of reds and pinks

    with the red & white its easy to add in some dark blues for the summer and have a R/W/B Americana style

    or add in light and dark greens and go with strawberries or watermelon

    for fall bring in apple assesories

    winter bring in dark hunter greens and white lace ..
