There’s just something charmingly timeless, tranquil, and lovely about blue and white kitchen decor, and we’re celebrating 40 pretty blue and white kitchen ideas today with these inspiring pins for you to consider.

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.  We painted a statement wall in our bedroom a deep blue, and chose periwinkle blue and white for our son’s spaces. The kitchen in our next builder’s special home got a major customized redesign with subtle mint green accents, and more blue and white in the bedrooms. Then came two very neutral brand new kitchens and more tranquil blue bedrooms before we landed at the fixer upper where we opted for a crisp classic white with light grey accents. When we bought the vacation cottage in Arizona, I was ready to makeover the red kitchen we inherited into a serene, blue-grey, Nordic French style one, and handpainting the cabinets blue-grey turned out to be my favorite part of the transformation since the mood instantly quieted. Pale blue remains my favorite color after white.

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.

Regardless of your personal analysis of blue, it’s hard to argue with the appeal of the following inspiration from 40 blue and white kitchens with charm, smart design, and architectural interest. I hope you’ll agree there are plenty of blue and white kitchen moments to PIN to your boards and share with your Pinterest followers.

    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.
