A bright blue island is bee-yoo-ti-ful in this country kitchen, a cheerful shot of color that freshens up the whole space. It's topped with a handsome wood counter; backless stools tuck neatly underneath.
This large, cottage kitchen has white cabinetry, a long, blue kitchen island with a marble countertop and a trio of windows that let in ample natural light. The herringbone-patterned wood floor was custom-made.
The centerpiece of the kitchen, the long island was designed as a feature that would make the space more functional. It offers plenty of space to prepare meals and entertain guests, but also has added drawers for maximum storage space.
A vibrant blue island adds a dramatic pop of color in this transitional kitchen. The intensity of the color is softened by the stainless steel appliances, soft gray granite top and yellow glass pendants.
Because the rest of her home is full of pattern, owner and designer Sarah Wittenbraker kept the kitchen clean, white and fairly minimalistic. Black countertops and a navy blue island create just the right amount of contrast, though.
This open kitchen and dining space with a breakfast nook and country blue island combines modern amenities with rustic flair. An open bookshelf stores cookbooks, dishes and other knick knacks while a drum pendant light hangs above the dining table.
In this lovely transitional kitchen, style works hand in hand with functionality. Transom cabinets provide extra storage and visual interest, with their interior lighting and frosted glass doors. A slate blue island adds a hit of color as well as a much-needed work space.
A supersized island not only provides ample storage space, but is the perfect spot for entertaining. The blue and white color palette evokes a tranquil feel while two spherical pendant lights above the island give the kitchen a playful vibe.
That blue and white color palette continues into the kitchen with the help of a cobalt island. Striped barstools bring some pattern into the space, as well as create an eat-in counter where the family can enjoy breakfast together.
This kitchen's clean lines and fresh white cabinets are warmed up by brass pulls and a blue base for the island. Lighting over the island is provided by a handsome black-and-gold pendant; creamy marble cascades over the top all the way down to the floor.
