“Color makes a huge im­pact,” Vani says. “Pick a color that makes you smile, and use it smartly. For ex­am­ple, if your kitchen is small with low ceil­ings, a splash of a cooler color tone will open it up, whether in the back­splash or in­side a glass-front cab­i­net.” Vani ex­plains that in this space, the light can be “un­usual” due to the dou­ble-height win­dows. “The light changes as the sun trav­els,” she says, which can af­fect the color of the cab­i­nets; it varies be­tween gray, blue and green, given the out­door con­di­tions. The cab­i­netry was painted in a shade called “Met­ro­pol­i­tan Gray,” a spe­cial blend cre­ated by Met­ro­pol­i­tan Cab­i­nets. The color meshes well with the wall color, a red vinyl cov­er­ing with a sub­tle, em­bossed an­i­mal-hide pat­tern.
