A new but bland brown-and-beige kitchen came with the house. Cheery blue walls and colorful accents gave it the same liveliness as the rest of the rooms. "Colorful walls and bright accents warm up cold granite and stainless steel, turning a functional kitchen into an inviting gathering spot," says Llewellyn. Alternating frosted and clear glass subway tiles in the backsplash creates a subtle, light-reflecting design.
