The second I laid eyes on this Swedish style kitchen by Jean Stoffer Design, I fell in love. It’s the perfect kitchen to feature the day before Easter with its pastel blue and white color scheme. It’s light and airy and oh so pretty! You’ll find that the details really add to the charm and appeal of the space, starting with the custom coffered ceiling.
Pale blue subway tiles set the stage for the kitchen’s color scheme. Darker blue plates and glasses can be seen through the glass front cabinets while large red knobs on the stove lend a whimsical touch.
The cabinets and trim are white, but the kitchen island is painted the palest of blues. I love the length of the island which provides ample space for meal prep and dining at the same time. A glass front cabinet stocks favorite cook books. White drum lights enhance the room without being a distraction. The wall of windows above the sink reminds me of the trio of windows in my own kitchen above the sink (although my kitchen is far more humble!).
The Swedish style kitchen ceiling echoes the pale blue of the subway tiles. The cabinets have rich detailing with recessed panels and unique toe holds. Brushed silver hardware looks elegant against the white cabinets.
Now it’s time to ooh and aah over the built-in hutch in the kitchen’s dining area. The dark brown of the cabinet mimics the shade of the nearby table. Blue and white dishes line create a pretty display behind the glass doors.
A pretty chandelier illuminates evening dining. This Swedish style kitchen is elegant without being stuffy or cold. It’s practical and livable without sacrificing design and style. The trim throughout the space is beautiful.
Sconce lights are cleverly placed between each window. The KitchenAid mixer enjoys its own little cubby next to a smaller, second sink.
Here’s a close-up view of the detailed trim on the kitchen island. You can also see how pretty the island’s counter tops is.
I love this little pull-out basket that acts as a drawer. You don’t see this too often and now I’m trying to figure out how to add this in my own kitchen.
The counter top above the cabinets is a darker shade than what’s on the island. When a room isn’t matchy-matchy, it tends to have greater aesthetic appeal. Note how the shape of the metal part of the sconce is similar to the faucet above the sink.
A close-up view of the seated side of the island reveals the raised paneling behind the stools. If you have plain cabinets, you can always add strips of molding. We added bead board at the ends of our cabinets to give them a little more substance. It was easy to do and didn’t cost much.
I hope you enjoyed today’s Swedish style kitchen by Jean Stoffer Design, Its white and pale blue palette is perfect for spring. It’s also great for winter as it echoes the colors of snow drifts!
