I may have mentioned (ahem) on a few social media accounts that I had a kitchen I designed featured on Remodelista this week in an article entitled “Trend Alert: The Cult of the Blue Kitchen, 10 Favorites“. I was flattered to be included because it’s Remodelista and I love their website and book, and for the design company I was alongside. Here are seven photos of a few of the other kitchens that I’m loving from some of the other designers and architects on the list. They all have made bold color choices with their paint selections and kept the surroundings neutral. Even this pale blue kitchen (below) is a bold choice although it might not seem so at first glance.
What do you think? Could you handle some boldly colored cabinets in your kitchen? Or, would you get tired of them in a year? Now that I’ve seen that yellow kitchen, I kind of want to try it out.
Last week I talked a little trash about the month of August. The weather this week in Denver has been amazing and I take it all back. I also have a small, yet pleasant, feeling of vindication for my smelling of Fall in the air. School starts for Littleton next week and I finally cleaned out and organized some kitchen drawers and cabinets in preparation for supplies, books and all the stuff that comes with just having one child in school – it made me feel absurdly on top of my game. I recommend cleaning out a drawer every once in a while just to make you feel like a champion.

These are really fabulous! Love the blue. We’d like to paint our cabinets.
