What is this love affair with kitchens that so many of us share? Maybe it has to do with the romantic notion of cooking in a kitchen that fuels your imagination with possibilities and choices.

You can imagine our wonderment, coming from a rural community that relies on Walmart, Canadian Tire and The Brick for its interior decorating needs. Please keep in mind that not all of your readers live in Oakville, Ont., or Westmount, Que. Good interior decorating should be within reach of all communities — urban and rural, large and small, and rich and not so rich. — WAYNE WILSON, Pembroke, Ont.

BLUE CRUSH Classic Blue (19-4052), Pantone’s Colour of the Year, signals a return to traditional shades that never fall out of fashion.
