Kitchen Paint Color Pick #3: Sunday Tea

Sunday Tea is a warm greige color; it’s not quite gray, and it’s not quite beige. This soft and subtle color is reminiscent of a peaceful and relaxing afternoon spent sipping tea and reading a book. Sunday Tea works well with other neutral tones, such as Simplicity for a refined and classic color scheme.

Peacoat works well in a variety of design styles, from traditional to modern, and works particularly well with crisp whites and metallic accents.

Kitchen Paint Color Pick #5: Soiree

Soiree is a warm, mushroom beige tone. This color looks great with other earthy tones, such as warm greens like Fireworks, or soft browns like Driftwood for a natural and harmonious color scheme.
