i have lived here 44 years but am californian for 22, and i use suede finishes with thickest brush conducting in circular movements (usually to classical music) with whites, blues (avatar), and orange-reds. the woodwork on the door and window trims is an enamel grey. the timbers in my kitchen are all are australian red cedar, however, i have antique american (ny) oak, walnut (australian), as furniture and cypress pine on the floor.
I use yellow green transparent curtains and 2 other kinds of lime green curtains in the red-orange dining room (di vinci red suede) and the other rooms of kitchen, entrance hall, are lead light windows. my bedroom is white with lace curtains and heavy white curtains on each side of big windows, my husbands bedroom is a golden yellow on the walls, cedar furniture, and royal deep red curtains which is what he likes. the other bedrooms are deep purple and purple haze (light); one bathroom is cream with deep red accents. the other is pressed white metal and white suede with cedar trims. the cedar wood is not american but a deep reddish/orange brown with variations of golden colors. the decorator suggested two colors for this in the kitchen: a mauve called smokey taupe and pinkstone or the upper reaches like ceiling. and it works well. I was in an old convent in yass, nsw where the colors surrounding the cedar were very much mauve and pinkish and it harmonised so well inside. (i was only there for 5 minutes). otherwise, the cootamundra, nsw courthouse has an excellent example of cedar with lead lights. the windows are panes (9" x 14") of assorted autumn colors which all add the light onto the cedar. It is a really lovely way to easily handle light onto wood. we carried our dining room colors outside and sueded the patio walls with di vince red (which is orange) and added palms and ferns in water-well pots. we also have an avatar blue suede garden enclosed in another area which adjoins the purple haze bedroom. and we used yellow green gardenia plants there..the smell is lovely. we put in some padded chairs and a coffee table. then for the centre of the garden on which our dining room looks out of is a five metre red coral japanese maple tree with an assortment of hellebores circled underneath. (there is piped music too).
the tree needs very cold winters, like a frost, in order to change its bark red in winter. otherwise it has green and apricot leaves. the entrance hall and hallway are in a blue, the woodwork is enamel grey. the lead lights are many..it's like an octagon. it is stong internal color but i find with lead light windows it works well. it is an old house, architect designed by the way. some ceilings are old lace white/cream. others are timber, such as in the hallways and my white bedroom. the lounge room is white/cream alpaca carpet, leather cream lounge with walnut trims and a curved style, cream sheers, drapes, cream on upper walls, and on lower walls is a pink called Bronco. it is an old rose color. it also was chosen by a decorator. this goes well with the upper walls which are a cream with green, yellow in it. of course everyone has a coffee table, ours is walnut, and also for the black glass tv stuff. the black works well with the australian cedar too. the kitchen tiles are a deep teal which look black in the daytime if the sun isn't on them, but light up in teal green with the under shelves lights on them. the fireplace is in these tiles too and it is lit up by the sun at certain times of the year. it reminds me of an aquarium at night. the lead light shelves above the counters are also lit up at night. we have three black cast iron pillar posts outside which light up the garden, plus a 1000 watt light which lights up the centre tree at night.

Kitchen Layouts Laid Out: The Galley Kitchen

A galley kitchen is long and narrow, but its clever configuration means that it's a highly functional space in which to cook and entertain Full Story

8 years ago I bought an existing house with my first galley kitchen. The kitchen concept was great, as I seriously dislike corner cupboards. I have since replaced the kitchen with a new and better version of the old one. The old one was full of doors, the new is all draws except for the overhead cupboards. The main problem with the old kitchen was the width between the benches, at just under 1000mm, which meant the open doors of the fridge or dish washer were difficult to move around. The new kitchen island is 1150mm between benches, and it makes all the difference with more than one person in the kitchen. In the old kitchen, power to the dishwasher in the island section came down from the ceiling through a narrow full width wall section at one end, which became a large visual block to the open plan area. The new kitchen used the same basic layout for appliances to minimise costs. The floor changed from vinyl to tiles so we took this opportunity to create a narrow trench in the slab floor to carry the electrical cable in conduit to the island bench, before the new tiles went down. By moving the small pantry to the adjoining alcove in the dining area, we now have a lovely 770mm either side of the hot plates in the recess between the oven and fridge in lieu of the 500mm on one side and none on the other, (I think a hot plate jammed up against a side wall is now illegal), it was definitely uncomfortable for cooking. The island bench increased in width from 700mm to 900mm which allowed for a decent overhang for the centre breakfast bar and overhang at both ends for addition breakfast bars. The new 900mm wide pantry has a double electrical outlet and a tv jack from it's previous use as a tv cabinet space, which is handy for electrical appliances. Note the great IKEA trivets either side of the hotplates, they protect the laminate and provide a quick put down spot for hot items to cool. Thanks.
