This long white foyer and hallway is crisp and elegant with minimal furnishings and lantern pendant lights. The navy blue door picks up the blue of the kitchen cabinets unifying the home's design scheme.
A large cabinet structure provides abundant concealed storage for this kitchen space. The cabinets frame an uncovered sliding window allowing natural light to reflect off the white countertop. Colorful display trays filled with fruit add vivid color against the solid design scheme.
It's amazing what a little color can do! Climb to the top of this home's stairs and you're welcomed by a rug with a rainbow array of hues and a handsome navy blue cabinet. Sunshine yellow walls beckon from a nearby bedroom.
Just after the entry but before we get to the living space, is the heart of the home, our kitchen. No compromises were made in this surprisingly expansive kitchen designed by Randy Jones of Incredible Tiny Homes whose motto is "Choose Tiny, Live Free." Not only is there a stained planked wood ceiling, it also houses a full-size refrigerator, range and farmhouse sink. I’m especially drawn to the way the gray upper cabinets compliment the blue lower cabinets against the wood butcher block counters. Last but not least, the ladder takes us to the tiny home master.
Blue-and-neutral floral fabric carries the color scheme for this great room. Display shelves with chicken-wire doors house decorative dishes and vases. Blue cabinets carry the colors through to the open kitchen.
In this kitchen, designers from America's Most Desperate Kitchens created an elegant, industrial space for these homeowners. The neutral color of the cabinets and countertops are offset by the blue backsplash that makes the space pop, while metal and wood blend together to create a seamless, industrial design.
With its white cabinets, this kitchen is designed to be a visual respite from the intense colors in the rest of Rayman's home. The kitchen is not a complete outlier though, as pops of blue make their way in through two stunning bar stools upholstered in blue velvet.
The open floor plan is perfect for families and entertaining. Traditional white cabinets pair with a gray kitchen island, which mimics the color scheme in the living room furniture. The cozy breakfast area features a round table with pretty blue chairs.
“All the trees outside this lakeside home inspired me to choose a leafy color for the kitchen cabinets that paired beautifully with a sky blue oven and hood. The look is a breath of fresh air!” — Kristina Crestin, Kristina Crestin Design, Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA
Perfect for casual weekend living, this Hamptons beach-house dining/family room has a close connection to the kitchen, as well as to outdoor living areas. Glass doors on the ground level slide all the way into the walls, opening the family/dining room and living room to an expansive deck area. The rooms can be entirely open or protected from mosquitoes with a screen system, allowing for summer breezes, ample entertaining areas and restoring connections to nature. “A consistent — but not overwhelming — thread of blue follows throughout these ground level spaces: blue kitchen cabinets, blue custom rug and touches of blue walls,” note the architects.
This modern home is filled with fun and whimsy, from the bold, blue kitchen cabinets to the soaring wood ceiling to the oversize metal art above the sliding glass doors. White walls and clerestory windows open the space and give it a light, airy feel. A traditional rug grounds the modern dining table and chairs.
The kitchen takes a colorful, industrial turn, showcasing Naomi’s fondness for metallics. The island is topped with an oxidized, steel countertop. The material is a unique twist on the usual granite or marble found in most kitchens. The steel top will patina over time. Its rough-hewn texture is also a pleasing contrast to the stainless steel refrigerator and brass elements in the kitchen. Cabinets in a gray-blue tone contrast with the brass pendant overhead. Naomi discovered the pair of vintage white bar stools and painted the legs gold for a finishing metallic touch.
