This hutch could go in a few different places. It could be the china cabinet in the dining room,a book case in the family room, or the hutch/cabinet in the kitchen eating area. I don't think I would change the colour.
Hang plants from the ceiling as opposed to sticking to the perimeter. On this Andrew Howard-designed porch at The Prairie by Rachel Ashwell in Round Top, TX, a perfect shade of haint blue (Yarmouth Blue by Benjamin Moore) sets a "Good Times Only" vibe.
