Sparrow | 0554

Just off the living room is a dining area with large windows that overlooks the neighborhood. Marta selected a mid-century dining set that she paired with a one-of-a-kind light fixture of her design. Sparrow | 0554  walls are a sophisticated neutral that pair beautifully with the colors in the rug and the wood tones in the furniture.

Chick Pea Please | R128

Marta’s light-filled kitchen connects the dining room and the kitchen nook at the back of the house. Marta chose Chick Pea Please | R128 for the walls— an inviting, warm neutral that balances the dark floors and countertops.

Lemon Bar | 0865

Pass through the kitchen to the sunny Chick Pea Please | R128 nook. The family uses this area to snack, relax and visit when meals are being prepped. A bright pop of Lemon Bar | 0865 yellow at the bar height counter adds whimsy to this colorful communal space.

Chick Pea Please | R128

The family kitty lounges in the sunlight that streams into the kitchen nook through its south facing windows. Chick Pea Please | R128, one of Miller Paint’s 2023 Color Trends, bathes the room in warm tones. We love how this playful peach hue works as a top-to-bottom neutral.

Chick Pea Please | R128

Just inside the back door, there are useful places to hang coats and store shoes. This stylish, utilitarian space makes it easy for Marta’s kids (and visitors) to transition from outdoors and jump right into hanging out. The green accents look fantastic with the Chick Pea Please | R128 walls.
