Pumpkin Corner





A while back I regaled you all with my apprehensions about





painting my very drab kitchen a shade of warm pumpkin. After looking at sample after sample of orange (who knew there are so many varieties of pumpkin!), I finally settled on something called "Aged Clay". A not-so-inspired name for a beautifully warm Tuscan color, just right for the kitchen. Always one to jump in feet first, the room was immediately transformed into the best room in the house. To say I love it is to put it mildly. A recent tree trimming session in the front yard yielded the branches (complete with nest!) for the corner and the bay window is the perfect spot for sitting with a cup of coffee to watch the birds. The gorgeous birdhouse was crafted by a dear family friend that I have know my whole life, a woodworker extrordinaire. All of the elements I adore in one little cozy spot. Life is good.

I am just over the MOON with this color and I'm not an orange girl. You have totally inspired me to get back to the work I started over two years ago in my kitchen.

What a lovely warm color for a kitchen! Deb, I LOVE this color, but if I had heard only "pumpkin" without the accompanying photos, I would not have envisioned it could have been this lovely. The tree with its beautiful lights and bird's nest lends the room such a wonderfully unique quality! You have created such charm here!
