May I ask the name/brand of the beautiful wall paint? It is perfect for the bold colors. :-)

What Houzz contributors are saying:

KitchenThere is no need to settle for a bland kitchen just because you are renting and can't change the big stuff. Focus first on your breakfast area, if you have one, and pack in the color.Paint a set of wicker or bamboo outdoor furniture, throw a vibrant cloth over your table and hang a colorful framed photo or print.

Love the bench, table and small chairs. I don't have a lot of room in my "dining area" so this would be perfect for it!

Interior Designer Emily Ruddo recommends how to add a splash of color without painting the walls like painting wicker furniture or being strategic with tablecloths like in this space.

this is featured in an article about renting a space where painting the walls is not allowed. suggestion is to pack the breakfast area with color, painting the second hand wicker furniture, pick up the same color in the picture and add tablecloth and curtains.
