The colors of sand, the ocean and old seaglass blue is a striking scheme for a Massachusetts kitchen.
High-gloss seaglass blue kitchen cabinets say vintage beach house without being specifically retro. That’s how a 1940s to 60s look was partially achieved in an interesting contemporary kitchen which also has jade green stone counters — an offbeat choice. Mixing pale blue and rich green with white cabinets on the window walls is part of the eclectic mix which some might find a little bit like Easter colors for summer. Horizontal paneling, painted seaglass blue matches the cupboards and works through the backsplash. It also provides color behind open and glass- door display cabinets to create a vivid background for dishware. In lieu of an island there is also a blue-painted work cart on casters — reminiscent of Depression ear enamel kitchen tables — which doubles as a serving trolley or rolls to where it’s needed.
In front of the window, a white farm sink is mounted under the green countesr with runnels on one side to create an integral drainboard. Old-fashioned semicircular shelves on each side of the window serve to push back the light-blocking upper cabinets while gracefully adding shelves that showcase small objects — a vintage kitchen look updated.
