I was sitting in my dining nook tonight and had an epiphany that the country kitchen oak cupboards that I can't replace right now read as orange in the evening light and really, do I want more of that? So I've changed my mind and I'm thinking I'll flip flop the colors around and do aqua as my wall color with orange and green as my accents. I think the aqua will look really fresh and will help balance the warmth of my cupboards and better complement the lovely grey I chose for my living room. I have the perfect green lamp for over my dining table, but I'll need to pick up a few orange accents. I guess I have a good excuse to start collecting Le Creuset in their traditional (and my favorite) shade of flame orange.
I'm picking up paint samples tomorrow. Wish me luck!
