Blue and White Kitchen Decor Inspiration {40 Ideas}

I have a little experience with blue and white decor at home, but you have to venture back into our home history. In our first home in Elmhurst, Illinois, we gutted a tiny 1920’s kitchen and created a navy blue and white kitchen we found charming and beyond cozy. 

Many years later we bought a second home and chose a tranquil blue grey for the painted cabinets along with plenty of creamy white.

As real life renovators, we made over our ugly Arizona kitchen with no demo or dust with smart upgrades and swaps. Light grey cabinets, Viatera quartz counters (Soprano), and calacatta marble hex accent wall - Hello Lovely studio.

Here’s one of my favorite Roy Orbison songs mentioning the color of the day and easing my mind back to a simpler time…if you don’t have time to listen to her whole performance, definitely don’t miss the gorgeous vocal moment at 4:00!

But I also love this bluesy blue song which I listened to on repeat in my angsty teen years…

According to color psychology, “Blue is a color that suggests peace. It’s the color of the calm sea and the clear sky, both of which are linked to inner serenity, calm and clarity. Blue was also shown to slow heart rate and breathing, so it can be a good color to aid in meditation or relaxation. Blue is associated with intelligence. It has been proven that different shades of blue can improve concentration, stimulate thinking and provide mental clarity. It also improves productivity. This is a good color for study and work, as it offers relaxation and stimulation at the same time.”

How is blue different from red? “Blue is a color that is linked with confidence. Unlike red, which shows aggressive dominance, blue is related to a calm authority. Blue inspires trust, it is non-threatening and shows persistence.”

Ever considered the relationship of the color blue and emotion? “Another characteristic of blue is that it is not a very emotional color. It can be described as aloof or snobbish. Just as it is associated with intelligence, it can be associated with being cold and rational to a point of showing little emotion.”

I also learned from color psychology research how blue is an unappetizing color which is curious since so many folks love blue in the kitchen! Is blue kitchen decor for people who are watching their portions or maybe attractive to folks who don’t do a lot of cooking? Food for thought.

    I have a blue and white kitchen, too! Actually, the shell is almond, both upper wall paint and subway tile, as well as onyx counter tops, but Blue Willow dishes and a deep blue French soup pot fool the eye into seeing a blue and white kitchen. Next step would have been to paint the cabinets white or deep blue but for the fact we’re getting ready to put the house on the market. Next place?

      How I love blue willow dishes! They bring back all sorts of warm nostalgia from my childhood and my Swedish gram who served us Swedish pancakes on them. That’s exciting stuff since you’re gearing up for a move…can’t wait to hear more along your journey. xox

    You’ve got some dreamy kitchens here. I’ve never been a blue kitchen person. But the variety of blues available now vs in the 1970’s is enough to change my mind. I’m loving the new navy & gold theme.
    Thanks for sharing.
