If you’re a fan of color in the kitchen and you like the color blue, you’re in for a treat! Today I’m featuring a crisp blue, English style kitchen by Laura Design Company located in the suburbs of Chicago. If I could afford to hire a design team for my kitchen, this would be it! I think you’ll see why.
I’m calling this an English style kitchen because it reminds me of kitchens you see in the U.K. Simple, recessed panel cabinets painted a crisp blue and paired with warm woods from the rustic ceiling beams to the polished floors.
The pattern carries a sweet little floral-type pattern which I prefer over a more contemporary, geometric pattern. It lends a country cottage vibe that I find so endearing.
The custom hood vent matches the lines of the cabinets and is painted the same crisp blue color.
An expansive island features open shelving at one end so you can display some of your favorite kitchen pieces. Or maybe this is where you store your most-used serving pieces so they’re easy to grab. Floor to ceiling cabinets provide plenty of storage and also remind me of an English style kitchen.
I like when a kitchen has a mix of open shelving with upper cabinets. Between the windows is a great spot for this type of application since the shelves won’t obstruct views or any natural light through the windows. It creates an airier appearance.
Of course, every quaint and pretty kitchen needs a white farmhouse sink underneath a window.
And that golden goose neck faucet – I need that in my life. I don’t like huge kitchen faucets and this one is graceful and a little old-fashioned looking.
