The ceiling is a good place to add color in the kitchen since many times there is not a lot of wall space. It's also a good way to get color without doing it with tile, cabs, or countertops....all very permanent decisions. A ceiling could easily be repainted at any time.
White kitchens are back! The new white kitchen: grey walls, French doors, salvaged rustic wood dining table, white or grey kitchen island, white marble countertops, marble subway tiled backsplash. Simple beauty.
