Design Notes: Bright, tropical-colored cabinetry in finishes of oranges, blues and greens enliven this open plan kitchen. The homeowners selected the vibrant palette for the cabinets, which were hand-painted and distressed on site by a local artisan and designed to match the yellow-orange walls. Spanish Mediterranean-inspired tile graces the backsplash and a tall plaster hood stretches up the length of the 13-foot ceiling. Topping off this colorful pool-house kitchen is a 48-inch cobalt blue Viking range.
