When you try to hide something as substancial as a kitchen in a small apartment, it only stands out more. I'd definitely de-clutter a bit but also add a butcher block table paralell to the kitchen counters and the same height as well. With a couple of useful drawers on the kitchen side and barstools on the outer side you'll integrate the kitchen into the apartment which actually makes it stand out less. You might also hang a pot rack from the ceiling over the butcher block table. I did this in my studio apartment and it really worked! From the fancy mid-town NYC apartment where I now live with its enclosed kitchen, I miss the flexibility of my studio apartment kitchen. I used the butcher block table to repot plants, roll out pie crusts, crafts, dinner parties - you name it. From my experience, curtains or doors to hide something are equivalent to shining a spotlight on it. Integrate! Good luck.

In New York, I've been going to Pageant Books in the East Village for years. Amazing prints but not as thorough as Ward.

Dark and rich. I like going to bed and waking up feeling like a king. White walls make me think of generic cereal in the morning: boring and no personality. I have great light in my current apartment but even in the previous apartment where there was very little light the rich color on the walls maked everything look better, even me!
