"Gingi,"* the red-headed kitchen

This is the color that we chose for our kitchen cabinets:
 It's a nice beige with warm reddish undertones.

This is the color that we got:
Day-glow orange.

What did they use as the wood stain:  carrot juice?!

*"Gingi" is the contemporary Israeli Hebrew word for "red-head."

Are the captions reversed on those two photos, or do I simply have no color sense?

I don't know, Larry, maybe it's the other way around. :) In any case, I prefer the color on the sample chip, something a bit more reddish and less yellow, more copper-colored and less brass-colored.

See the top of this page for a brass vs. copper color comparison.

YOU have a WINDOW over your SINK!!!

I am filled with envy.

And Larry, thanks for pointing out that I am not color blind, I wonder if it's something to do with the color temperature of the lighting.

Reform BT, no such luck--we have a window, not visible in this photo, to the left of our sink. Directly over the sink is (what's currently left of) a wall, with cabinets directly above it.

But, yes, I did get suggestions from some friends to whom I e-mailed these photos that the lighting may having something to do with how I'm seeing these colors. That does seem to be the case, since the sample looks different when I bring it into the kitchen than when I look at it in the living room.
