Aga-Centric Kitchen

blue kitchen with Aga and white robinson and cornish cabinetsA British cooker plus pierced wood-door cabinets heaps on the old-school charm

Bright blue walls give a lively punch to this large kitchen in Scotland. While the walls and base of the large island are painted blue, a cream-colored Aga cooker is built into an imposing niche lined with yellow-gold mosaic tile. Counters throughout are polished black granite. The island houses a prep sink and also provides seating on one side.

A tongue-and-groove backsplash is painted white to match the cabinets. Kitchen doors have  divided glass on top, to match doors on some upper cabinets. The main sink — a double-bowl farmer — sits in front of a window with a wood-tone drip rail beneath it (a bespoke kitchen detail).  Dark cabinet hardware echoes the color of the counters.


The Blue Rooster Kitchen also has cabinets with pierced doors.

    Hi Cyndi,

    I don’t have the exact paint color but it’s likely Farrow & Ball Lulworth Blue or Cook’s Blue. Skylight is much paler and another good color which I used in a bedroom.

    I had a heck of a time with blue as well — I needed it for my living room. Wound up using Ellen Kennon’s Seaglass, which isn’t too green or too purple or too sweet. It’s just a nice soft Swedish blue (it doesn’t look anything like the color on her website unfortunately). You might see if one of those works for you.
