The lights in the breakfast nook are actually a deep red.
You know Jenn,
I was thinking.....if you need more counter space, your kitchen looks big enough for one of those islands (large carts) on wheels. They have a big choice now on these. I saw some very contemporary looking ones with black legs. BTW, love your wood floor.
Since you are going for the deep red with the blue, you now have a color palette to work with. Some deep red accessories and area rugs perhaps?
From my home to yours,
Thanks for joining in.
