Until recently, design shows and magazines have suggested using vibrant colors, graphic patterns, and layers of texture solely in home accessories and other areas than can be easily and affordably changed. But now the more permanent, pricier parts of a kitchen are going bold and idiosyncratic. Appliance fronts and entire ranges sport red, blue, and yellow hues rather than neutral stainless steel, white, or black. Big Chill Appliances in Boulder, Colo., says its most popular custom colors are beach blue, cherry red, and buttercup yellow. Backsplashes display graphic patterns in large, colorful tiles instead of spa-calming solid white, gray, and pale blue in diminutive subway tiles. And even countertops are getting in on the act with swirling, exotic designs from Formica and other manufacturers. The trends being seen in cabinetry—often the most visible and costly part of a kitchen remodel—include deep blues, greens, and even red paint choices, a stark contrast to the former safer bets of white or pale wood. Textured, highly decorative wallpaper has returned too, after years of being banished. And everywhere, black—or navy—is the new gray, according to Chicago designer Rebecca Pogonitz, owner of GoGo Design Group.
Therapy gardens neednt be large. In fact, a small footprint can make them easier and less costly to tend. They can be sited almost anywhere on a property, but terrain, a homeowners wish for privacy, and the amount of light needed for the desired plantings will help determine the best spot. Many therapy gardens are built in secluded places, away from a house and neighbors or at a different elevation, says Sacramento, Calif.–based landscape designer Michael Glassman.
