Specifically, this room suffers greatly from bad wallpaper syndrome (pastel teacups appeal to a pretty limited crowd) and an abundance of terra-cotta-look flooring that clashes badly with more formal, dark brown cabinetry. By painting the walls a more neutral color (see next photo), Donna, Temple and David widen the kitchen's appeal to a greater range of buyers and update the look. Neutrals are the hardest paint colors to pick since there is a tremendous range. On TV at least, this particular neutral didn't work all that well with the tones of the existing flooring and faded a bit on camera. Something with more bite and a slightly warmer undertone would have solved both issues.
