Perhaps it's the homeowner's favorite color?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Another example of simplicity and elegance. The ceiling floats, shelters the kitchen and relates to other large scale forms in this space.
This kitchen's showing another loud color that could easily overwhelm any room but in this case it doesn't. The whole "color budget" gets spent on that red cabinetry. By ganging together all of the tall elements, the red cabinetry in this kitchen functions as an accent wall.
This Alterstudio project uses a clerestory to bring light into a kitchen area. While it's accompanied by a large rectangular window by the sink, it takes advantage of that "no man's land" above the upper cabinets. Might as well use it to make the work surfaces brighter.
Scheer & Co. added this to The High Life: Clerestory Windows
Strategically placed built-ins could have resulted in a dark kitchen, but clerestory windows were cleverly installed above this feature wall.
Becky Harris added this to Sample Bright Color in the Kitchen
Commit: These glossy red cabinets create a bold swath of color and a strong accent wall.
