See how a designer took an interior color scheme of blues and greens and ran tastefully wild
Although Singer wanted to take risks with the design, he was slow to embrace the idea of green kitchen cabinets in high-gloss lacquer. “It was the first thing she showed me, and it was really out there,” Singer says. “I asked her to redo the design with a more neutral palette.” Murray complied—but eventually convinced Singer to okay her original idea after she pointed out that green would read like a neutral because of everything outside the large windows: the trees, the grass, the bushes. “If it were any other bright color, it would feel too bold,” Murray says. Handsome brass hardware pairs brilliantly with the hue. Glam design demands elegant materials, so Murray finished the room with Nero Marquina black marble counters and turquoise stools to bring some blue into the space.
