Traditional Blue Kitchen Design: What Makes it Timeless?

Is it my favorite kitchen of all time? I do love a European country kitchen or any space touched by Pamela Pierce, yet this stand out from an Atlanta 2017 showhouse (kitchen designed by Matthew Quinn & Lauren DeLoach). continues to reign since it never fails to soothe! We recently explored its starring design element: the color of the cabinets HERE, and today we’ll muse about this traditional blue kitchen and What Makes it Timeless?

PAINT COLORS…Sherwin William ALABASTER on walls and also Farrow & Ball LIGHT BLUE on cabinetry.

Read about how Alabaster is still a strong contender for interiors in THIS.

Curious about this shade of blue-green? Me too. Did you know you can order a sample? (Click on the paint can below). Yep. I just did and painted a small canvas to get a feel for the hue before using, and guess what? It read very green in my light…not at all as blue-grey as photos online suggested.

So before investing in a whole gallon or getting carried away in your imagination with a particular paint color, invest in a small sample and see what you think!

However, the lamps!

See if there is a pocket in your kitchen a little lamplight might brighten. And don’t overlook a floor lamp to cozy a dim corner.

Antiques Plates Displayed on Wall

Of the antique Ridgeway plates which are hung on the wall next to the farm sink, the designer told Hello Lovely:

“I found them at Interiors Market in Atlanta and have never seen any others. They were the exact shade of the cabinet color so I think they were meant to be there.”

I rarely like brass details in modern kitchen kitchens, but this burnished effect has me sold.

Light Blue Hand Applied Painted Cabinets

In this completely custom kitchen, Farrow & Ball Light Blue paint was hand-brushed on the cabinets.

The designers felt this application increased the character of the space and better integrated it with the original house.

Brush marks give the cabinetry a look as if it has been painted many times over the years!

Isn’t it amusing that homeowners angst over getting a perfect factory sprayed on finish for cabinets, and a high end luxury one like this sees the beauty of brushstrokes? I am a brushstroke kinda girl.

The millwork is a masterpiece in this dining area, and what a testament to using color instead of all that white shiplap we see everywhere.

Lauen DeLoach upholstered the window surround, adding nailhead trim for unexpected elegance.

I’m not sure what the sentiments will be in a few years about so much shiplap everywhere away from farms and cottages.

    Happy Sunday Michele!

    It is a most lovely kitchen indeed!

    Though I don’t tend to lean towards blue, here in our new home we have such beautiful expanse of sky out our windows, I did toy briefly 😉 with doing our kitchen cabinets in a light blue similar to this home. Because I just couldn’t take that step quite yet, I did paint a lovely little vintage counter stool in a similar light blue color.

    I think a subtle light blue is a wonderful addition to a room….it seems to be growing on me. 🙂

      Hi Connie! It was so fun for me to paint the Arizona home’s kitchen cabinets a blue-grey so that I could experience it. Everyone including me loved living with them so I’m a cheerleader for the timelessness of a sophisticated light blue or blue-grey when done right. Painting the stool is such a smart move! I did the same thing a few months ago – picked up an old wooden country stool at an estate sale…who can walk away from a cute one? Thanks so much for reading and sharing more your progress. xox

    It’s so pretty! I’m glad to see that brass hardware and fixtures are becoming more fashionable now. I’ve always loved the warmth of brass. Thanks for the post, Michelle.

      Hahaha we all want those antique Ridgeway plates Lauren DeLoach somehow snagged for this kitchen which coordinate perfectly with that soothing blue. Thanks for reading!

    I like the tall metal flowers on the nightstand in the master bedroom. Wish I knew where they got those. Any ideas?
    Also, I noticed the use of table lamps at the kitchen sink. Could you do a post specifically on how to use lamps in kitchens when there are already pendants, spot lights or chandeliers?

      January 7, 2021 / 4:07 pm

      I’ll look into those flowers and locate the designer’s name in case I can ask. The lamps – yes! I used table lamps in our Arizona kitchen because of the plentiful counterspace, but that is a great post idea. I have a floor lamp in the breakfast nook which is slightly different – and I have been thinking about the need for battery operated lamps and sconces for kitchen. There are sources for battery sconces (not a great variety of styles) which I should share as well. Thanks for reading!

      It is truly a killer combination, and I’m not always crazy about brass hardware yet this makes me a believer. (If I tell myself ‘gold toned’ or ‘warm metallic’ I feel even better!). Merci for reading – have a wonderful weekend!

    I love the look of these kitchens, they are so classy and timeless! I’m having my kitchen cabinets redone by a local cabinet refinisher in a few weeks, and I would love to use Farrow & Ball Light Blue paint and matching gold hardware and knobs. I have a lot of vintage antiques that my grandmother gave to me that I’ve incorporated into my kitchen decor, and I think it would look well with these colors. My only concern is that my kitchen doesn’t have a lot of windows or natural light. Do you think this color would still work with my space?

    • Michele

      January 7, 2021 / 4:02 pm

      Definitely try a sample of the color on the wall in your space first since it is likely to look entirely different than these photos given your lighting and given photography/editing/computer screen settings. I would also try a sample at 50% saturation in case you like that effect better. Best of luck on your project…exciting!

  7. January 9, 2022 / 2:03 pm

    I love Farrow and Ball colors. We moved into an 1138 sq ft home 2 months ago, and I had the kitchen cabinets painted stone blue by FB, with white quartz countertops. Beautiful home by Pamela Pierce!
