Blue Rooster Kitchen

French provincial kitchen with yellow stucco walls and pale blue rooster motif cabinetsYellow and blue is a classic French country décor combo

Designer Mark Wilkinson evokes the spirit of Provence by combining sunny yellow stucco walls with pale, sky blue-washed cabinets under an antique beamed ceiling. Cabinet doors are pierced by rooster cutouts which crow “country” despite the thoroughly urban Miele dishwasher with an integrated wood panel. Drawers have wide, turned basket-pull handles above pull out basket drawers. There’s  a brick floor and, in addition, a rooster-motif door made as an exact match to the cabinets.

    Well, it’s kind of sad, if surprising, to me that I’m the first to comment on this warm and inviting kitchen after so many months! I am generally “green” (as in color) and yellow person, and not one given to ever painting a room blue, but, I have to say that this is the kitchen I REALLY want! Blue cabinets and all.

    I’ve often wondered why no one has commented before on this kitchen and I’m very glad you did — thank you Sal! I think the blue cabinets are spectacular with those roosters. But it’s a little too rustic to be considered chic today when everyone is focused on Belgian kitchens with those honkin big stoves and gray, gray, gray.

    You are so right. I am so tired of the “necessity” of having a GRANITE counter and new, cookie-cutter stained cabinets!!! They have become BORING as 70’s Formica.
    I don’t have much money, or I’d find some cabinet maker to make me deVol bespoke type of shaker cabinets. Because I HAVE to replace my rusted out cheap sink, I plan to paint my cabinets a grayish green or the blue in your photo, and am considering either an oak countertop from IKEA, or a ceramic tile one… Maybe even soapstone, as there’s a local guy… But It’s probably Shone my budget tho, ha, ha!

    I know this post is a year, but I had to comment because it is a beautiful kitchen.

    I am new here and found the picture of this kitchen… It is just so so fantastic… Everything… from the floor with the lovely tiles…

    If I could I would copy every bit of it… Those cupboard doors, the drawers…. the sieving… EVERYTHING!!!!!!!

    Please put in more pictures of your kitchen, and I guess your entire home is in the same style… Would be glad to see that as well…
