White wall paint - Hi, what brand/name of white paint did you use on the walls? They look so crisp and clean, exactly the white I'm going for in my house.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The close-knit kitchen and living room works really well for the family. It's easy for the clients to cook and clean the kitchen while their daughter is within watching distance in the living room. The rest of the house is split-level, so the bedrooms are just upstairs and a studio space is below. "Everything is in shouting distance," says Zames. More Kitchens of the Week:Bright and Modern in 90 Square FeetCheerfully Modern in OregonSmall Kitchen, Big View
This home in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, was renovated by General Assembly for a family not yet ready to expand. The small living area serves for cooking, eating and lounging. These functions are clearly demarcated in the L-shaped space, yet the boundaries between are open. This is not unique to small homes, but it is carried out rather efficiently here. On the left is the lounging area with a couch, a coffee table, a chair and storage, while the small kitchen is on the right, serving the dining area (shown in the next photo). The kitchen is key, as it is accessible on two sides and has storage that is also accessible from other sides. (Note the shallow shelves on the island in the right foreground.)
Laura Gaskill added this to 16 Ways to Shake Up Your Summer Bar
Incorporate the bar into the kitchen. Do your guests always end up in the kitchen? If so, take the hint and set up your bar where your guests can be right in the heart of things. Use open shelving or set a bar tray on the counter.
Choosing What's Right for YouThere's no set formula that can tell you which kitchen layout will work better in your home. Part of having a conversation with a designer is trying to figure out what's best for you. Start with a list of needs and wants, and go from there. "You've got to consider the way you live in your home and the way you use your home," says Carrino. "How do you use your kitchen? How do you foresee using your new kitchen?" Everyone's needs are different, so don't let yourself sway with trends. "A family with kids that need supervision might decide to do an open-concept plan with a large multifunctional island," says Dixon. "But a couple who loves to entertain might opt for a closed-concept space so they can prep courses ahead of time and not spoil the surprise. It totally depends on your lifestyle."
