Today’s kitchen is hard to describe in a single sentence. A simple blog title simply won’t do it justice. A rich wood vaulted ceiling, a black slate floor, and a wall of windows provide the frame for this beautiful space. A surprising color on the kitchen cabinets led me to dub it the peaceful blue kitchen. Because I imagine stepping into this space would immediately relax your nerves as you gaze out the windows for a view of Puget Sound.
It looks like the knobs from the stove became the inspiration for the shaker kitchen cabinet color. Or maybe it’s the other way around. Glossy white subway tiles seem to reflect the light from the wall of windows. The black slate floor is rich with a little bit of drama added in.
Would you use the dishwasher – or wash the dishes by hand if you had a view like this from your kitchen sink?
Glass shelves in front of a portion of the windows creates extra storage while allowing for natural light to flow in.
I like that an unexpected pale blue is used on the kitchen cabinets, instead of gray or white. I would imagine part of the inspiration came from the waterfront views outside. The peninsula provides a great spot for dining and enjoying nature through the windows.
I don’t know about you, but I would by this house for the kitchen alone. The warmth of the floor and ceiling, coupled with the amazing view, is all I’d need to call this home. Not to mention, it sure would inspire me to cook more.
