Find Your Flow

To unify a whole-house palette, Clements also likes to pick a flow color that can be used in as much as 65 to 70 percent of the house. It can be a neutral, but it doesn't have to be. For the Eatons' palette, she suggested the yellowish khaki-green pastel used on the kitchen walls as the flow color, and carried it into the dining room, down the back staircase, and up into the second-floor hallway. "It looks different in different lights, so it's a great flow color because it's kind of alive."

Shown: The dining room cabinetry around the corner from the kitchen is painted the same greenish gold as the range wall to emphasize the open connection between the spaces.
