With all the flowers and trees and acres of grass it looks like a cabin in the woods! We've had several people stop and ask us where we got our siding!
We have one red wall in our house....it's the wall from our living room into the kitchen. The paint is called Cranberry Wall, so it's not one of those fire engine red colors. That color pops that wall...it is amazing how well that wall looks with the rest of the house. The living room is done in a very pale grey and the kitchen is done in light sage green. That red wall is awesome. I would not want want an entire room done in red, but definitely one wall. And at Christmas time? Fantastic!
In the kitchen, we love the color with the hutch and table finishes. It just works for us.
When we were trying to decide what color to paint our kitchen, Rick said it was up to me BUT we were NOT changing that red wall. No way.
It even goes well with Mollipop!
