Bright Blue Kitchen Island Adds Fun Twist to Coastal Vibe
Benjamin Moore's 'Blue Suede Shoes' paint adds a fun twist to the cool contemporary coastal vibe to the kitchen in this New Hampshire beach home. Shiplap-style paneling helps conceal some of drawer seams in the cabinetry, and open shelving continues those lines while balancing the weight of the blue to keep the space feeling open and airy. Thick countertops were a splurge for the homeowners but were balanced by lower-cost touches like the decorative lighting.

The kitchen island is a large centerpiece in this contemporary kitchen. A white subway tile backsplash adds a nice texture among the smooth finishes in the room. Red barstools surrounding the island, orange rimmed pendant lights and blue walls add touches of color.
The home owner's of this Burbank, CA home entirely renovated the space, including widening the opening to the living room before installing wood laminate flooring, white Shaker cabinets and new appliances. The end result is an open, bright and modern kitchen as seen on HGTV's original series House Hunter Renovation.
