One aspect of the house that Brenda did change was the use of more vibrant colors. “I’m not afraid to use color, and I wanted there to be a surprise in every room,” she says. Brenda is an expert at mixing and matching colors: She designs many of the pieces for her very successful wholesale clothing company, Cupcake International, and gathers many ideas for the use of color during her international buying sojourns. “The kitchen had 1940s red Formica counter tops,” she explains, “so I played off that red.” The floor has vinyl tiles with one of the squares representing a red, white, and blue nautical flag. (The Hyannisport flag is also represented). The kitchen walls are a nacho cheese yellow and the decorative trim around the cupboard and window was hand-painted in the 1940s by artist Peter Hunt. The first-floor bath is hot pink and yellow, while the pantry is painted white with a cobalt blue floor. “The blue reminds me of the color found on the Greek island of Santorini,” notes Brenda.
