I've wanted to give this large, two-piece hutch a facelift for a while. Tony's beautiful, mostly-white china with a fruit/vegetable motif, left to him by his mom, seemed to just disappear inside the hutch, with no contrast to really allow it all to stand out.
Too, the muted colors of the walls and furniture in nearby spaces needed something more thrown into the mix. Something unexpected and dramatic. A surprise!
I chose this orangey-red, semi-gloss paint, called Aztec Red.
The color pulls out some orange tones from different corners of the viewable area, like a plant with some orange colors in the leaves and the design on a little, black-lacquered chest of drawers in the dining room. Same with the decoration of the dishes.
Overall, I think I like it.
