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.
Lovely mud room with a Dutch door. The soapstone sink is used for flower arranging and bathing the family's two King Charles spaniels, who come in and out through a louvered dog door at the base of the floor-to-ceiling cabinets.
