Barbara Hamerick and her husband John were remodeling their kitchen in San Leandro, Ca. They didn't know where to begin. They had ordered maple cabinets in which the color was less natural wood stain and more prismatic color. I wanted to balance the warm cabinets with the cool stainless steel appliances. I chose deep gray-green countertops to bridge the orange tone of the cabinets and wall color with the stainless steel gray. I also repeated the arch design element in the fan and pulls with a focal window.

"We didn't know what to do with the orange cabinets!"

Daryl Reed has a keen sense of color but was overwhelmed trying to paint the exterior of her Berkeley Historical home.
