Great rapport of blue and beige at vintage kitchens

If you’ve decided to change the look of your kitchen this year, painting your cabinets a new color is a great (and relatively low-profile) way to freshen things up. However, choosing just the right shade can be challenging. Maybe you’re looking to deviate from a classic, all-white look, but 2022’s maximalist kitchen trend isn’t your taste either. Enter blue kitchen cabinets, one of the most versatile and proven ways to give your cooking space some serious star power.

There’s no doubt that the color has had a moment: Benjamin Moore named a soothing shade called Aegean Teal the 2021 color of the year; the year before, Pantone named Classic Blue its color everywhere.

In one of Davis’ most recent projects—the restoration of a classic Joseph Eichler house in California with architect Gustave Carlson—the design team and client were drawn to Farrow & Ball’s steely Hague Blue in the kitchen. But depending on your unique lighting conditions and space, you can choose to go for an electric Yves Klein-inspired blue, a barely-there seashell, or (the better of two color trends, in our opinion), a rich blue-green. To complete your blue kitchen, Davis recommends accenting the kitchen cabinets with blue finishes, whether it’s flecks on terrazzo floors or veins in a marble countertop. From there, she will contrast “the coolness of blue with warmer colors like a yellow oven or the warmth of walnut.”
