Stylish Spaces: Rich Color by Dirk Jan Kinet

The more interiors I look at the more I realize how drawn I am to rich, saturated colors--which are unfortunately illsuited for a renter of a tiny home! Lighter colors will make rooms seem bigger and even if you have size to work with dark colors are a pain to paint over when it's time to move on. Oh well, the heart wants what the heart wants and my heart and eyes are drawn to deep colors like the sort that fill interor designer Dirk Jan Kinet's home in Mexico. His kitchen looks like a Delft plate come to life and the textured dark teal wall in his living room creates the perfect atmosphere for his collection of gilded figures and frames. via
