Paint a Door instead of the walls! Although dark-purple walls might be difficult to live with (and hard to paint over), a deep-violet door creates intrigue without overpowering this entryway. Love this door!
Don't think I want yellow but I like the idea of the pantry pocket door having some pop of color. Also, want the shelving inside the pantry to have the microwave, coffee maker, etc on it with the drawers below
