Paint Colors in Timeless Blue and White Kitchen!

The emails keep rolling in about the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles 2017 Southeastern Designer Showhouse kitchen profiled and profusely praised last year. Even after an interview with one of the designers and spilling lots of secrets, you still want more. I keep hearing from folks who desire more specifics about colors, materials, and sources associated with this showstopping kitchen and breakfast area, a collaboration between Matthew Quinn of Design Galleria and Lauren DeLoach Interiors.

Questions for the Designer

When last we caught up with designer Lauren DeLoach, she shared key ingredients in the kitchen design.

What were the design objectives for the kitchen and pantry?
We wanted to create a cozy, proportional kitchen. This home has a ton of old character and classic details. The kitchen needed to fit in without standing out in scale, if that makes sense? As boring as it may sound, functionality was our main objective. Matthew is the master at making a place for everything.

What inspired that divine color palette?

We preferred a color other than white. Blue is the homeowner’s favorite color. The blue we settled on works as almost a neutral in the space.

Matthew Quinn and I loved the idea of using brass accents with the light blue. Something you may not be able to see from photos? The paint is brushed on the cabinets. We all felt this made the kitchen feel more a part of the original house–like cabinetry that had been painted many times over the years!

PAINT COLOR FOR CABINETRY: FARROW & BALL Light Blue

This tranquil BLUE PAINT was HAND-BRUSHED ON THE CABINETRY

#lightblue Farrow & Ball Light Blue - on Hello Lovely Studio
FARROW & BALL Light Blue. A light silvery blue This silvery blue was so named because it was the lightest blue Farrow & Ball made in its first collection of colours. Light Blue becomes a little more silver in tone when used in shaded areas so is very popular for use on the walls of internal halls, especially when the remainder of the house is painted in cooler, more neutral greys. When used in well lit areas it feels both peaceful and calming, especially when paired with a cool white like Blackened.

Design Details: Range

RANGE HOOD: Main material is a burnished brass. The strapping is hammered polished brass.

Design Details: Decorative Plates

PLATES ON WALL NEAR THE FARM SINK: Antique Ridgeway plates found at Interiors Market in Atlanta.

“I have never seen any others like them…and I’m constantly shopping antique china. They were the exact shade of the cabinet color so I think they were meant to be there. Fortunately, the homeowner purchased them and they are still hanging next to the sink.”

Design Details: Butler Pantry

TILE IN THE BUTLER PANTRY: Custom through Renaissance Tile.

We loved the handmade quality. And tying the light blue and cream, together with the darker blue color of those cabinets made it a very cozy space. 

The butlers’ pantry has lots of storage and even a full size freezer and dishwasher.

Design Details: Marble Countertops

While I am waiting for confirmation about this detail from the designer, the white marble appears to be Levantina’s Kalos Bianca Porcelain.

Design Details: BREAKFAST ROOM

Yong Pak, the architect had drawn those lovely niches with plate ledges, and I’m a sucker for plates on the wall! I decided that painting the back wall the same color as the kitchen would really unify the two spaces.

Design Details: BANQUETTE

I worked with a local company to design the banquette using recycled leather for the seat and a fabulous Cowtan & Tout Buffalo Check for the back.

Design Detail: BRASS NAILHEADS

During a meeting with them, the fabric panel around the round window just popped into my head and that wonderful flower brass nailhead detail was born! I love how that pulls the brass elements from the kitchen subtly into the space.

Design Detail: Fabrics

DRAPES: Cowtan & Tout

 I used more Cowtan & Tout fabric for the draperies on both the french doors outside and the cased opening opposite so the breakfast area is flanked by fabric. I’m a big believer that drapes make the space!

ANTIQUE CREAMWARE: Loaned, Interiors Market.

I personally collect reticulated basketweave creamware like the pieces I used. I thought it seemed so graphic against the blue wall. I just love it and was so fortunate to be able to use so many fine pieces!

Design Details: Furniture

DINING FURNITURE: Table and chairs, antiques.

The antique table and chairs just suited the space. I prefer to use antiques as much as possible in my designs for the sense of history they bring to a space. The table felt like it could have been a family piece that was passed from generation to generation.

Stunning built-in blue painted shelves with lace creamware plates and banquette.

How would you describe the mood of the kitchen experienced in person?

Light yet elegant. It feels refined without feeling stuffy…I love that balance! That balance makes everyone feel comfortable in the space and you wanted to linger.

What guiding principles for creating a timeless space inform the project?

First, cross-reference some elements of your design- repeat a color or pattern or metal finish.

Second, MORE IS MORE when it comes to fabric in a room. Drapes and pillows make the space!

Third, Antiques. Always and forever. Don’t be afraid to use them! Your grandmother would want you to!!
