This traditional kitchen gets its fresh, clean look from a pastel blue-and-white color scheme. Custom cabinets with full-inset doors and drawers feature whisper-blue paint accented with hefty black hardware. The sink wall adds white in the form of an informal beaded-board backsplash and a vintage-look apron-front sink. Patterned cushions on white-painted barstools and dining chairs add fresh pops of color.
Blue, yellow, and red define this formal kitchen's cheery color scheme. Rich, dark blue paint and a yellow marble countertop transform the kitchen island into a dramatic focal point. Rust-red terra-cotta tile flooring grounds the island, and blue diamond-shape accent tiles tie the island to the floor. Adding doses of white, or another neutral, can give a bold color scheme a sophisticated edge. Here, crisp white walls, banks of cabinets, and handsome range hood do just that. The focal-point mural beneath the range hood ties the colors together beautifully.
Blue with a Southwestern Kick
Southwestern with a touch of rustic charm, this kitchen boasts turquoise-painted cabinets with twig detailing. A deep red Mexican saltillo tile floor and rough-cut ceiling beams (known as vigas) add warmth underfoot and overhead. Butcher-block countertops, wood paneling, and wood chairs temper the cabinets' vibrant hue with their natural tones.
Although a subtle color, the sky blue wall in this kitchen emphasizes the staggered heights and exquisite crown molding of the white cabinets. White subway tile backsplashes extend the plane of white, with a tile mural above the range in smoky shades of gray that help ease the stainless-steel accents into the airy mix. Black granite countertops and upholstered stools add a strong punch to balance the ethereal elements in the kitchen.
French blue-painted cabinets gain the look of age with a distressed texture and a taupe glaze that clings to their door and drawer fronts, turned legs, and crown molding. Concrete countertops and stainless-steel appliances blend into the soothing blue background. A richly stained hardwood floor adds warmth underfoot.
Designed to look like an early-20th-century kitchen, this space features blue lower cabinets with recessed-panel doors and silver-tone hardware. Painting the backs of the white upper cabinets blue carries the lighthearted color upward. A white range hood, tongue-and-groove ceiling, and subway tile backsplash add period details while letting the blue paint pop. Matching quartersawn-oak islands (which resemble vintage library tables) boast white marble countertops for palette continuity. Golden-brown granite countertops, gold-and-white floral wallpaper, and creamy golden pendant lights add warmth to the palette.
