|A 1990 center-hall colonial featured a drab kitchen flowing into the family room; both spaces were painted in dark earth tones.||Harvey gave both rooms a facelift and introduced a fresh palette of crisp white and pale gray with splashes of color.|
|The existing kitchen cabinets were stained a dated honey color and combined with dark countertops and backsplash.||The kitchen cabinets have been painted pale gray and paired with Cambria countertops and a backsplash of white, hand-molded porcelain tile.|
|The fireplace was boring, with a traditional wood surround. The owners wanted space for TV-watching and entertaining, but the family room area held an awkward sectional and little other seating.||A sleek, new fireplace is clad in large-format, marble-look porcelain slabs around an Acme gas firebox. Wood-and-brass shelf units from Sherrill Furniture add visual interest behind the sofa, while comfortable seating abounds.|
