One of my clients has asked me to select a paint color for her kitchen, the catch is it has to be blue. Blues are very tricky and viewing on a small fan deck of paint colors can be very deceiving. So the first thing I did was look through our image source books and digital files to see what I liked and what they responded to. I was amazed by the variation of blue kitchens I found, not all are in the running as inspiration for this particular project, but are striking none the less.
I think this kitchen is very pretty, the carrara marble, dark stained wood and light blue walls are a nice combination.

I like the blue and green of the drapes...also the very cool limestone hood is in interesting feature in the otherwise very traditional kitchen.
Another approach is to have blue accents. I think the blue slip covers and flowers are a nice punch in an otherwise neutral kitchen.
Another great neutral kitchen with blue furnishings.
Sometimes I think blue works best when you also have a lot of white in a room. Here the gray blue is a nice foil to the white arch.
I love the blue and green theme in this relaxed, cheerful kitchen
The blue lacquered ceiling is nice detail.
Here the blue cabinets with the black stove are a nice, elegant combination.

The blue is nice with a bold pop of yellow.
Gorgeous chairs in neutral, modern kitchen. So pretty
Sarah Richardson DesignsI think these are very pretty blue cabinets...the polka dot look of the backsplash tile add a bit of whimsy to a sophisticated kitchen.
I admire Steven Gambrel so much. He is fearless with his use of color, textures and materials. Note the blue stone slab floor tiles, the boldly veined marble sink and counter top, along with a great hood and lights. It's so eclectic and fun.
Which one would you choose? Happy weekend, stay cool and don't get the kitchen blues.
