Blue is an incredibly popular color for the kitchen. While I've always liked darker blues, I think I may have found my new favorite blue hue: "Hemlock" by Benjamin Moore, seen above. Doesn't it just look beautiful in the kitchen?
Benjamin Moore's Hemlock is a lovely blue-green that pairs particularly well with silver (or stainless steel) accents. The kitchen you see here was designed by Sheila Bridges, and recently featured in House Beautiful. The cabinets are painted in Hemlock, and they play beautifully against the shimmery Torino Damask wallpaper, the stainless steel Bertazzoni range, and the white marble countertops.
Such a pretty, statement-making blue — and a little more of an unusual blue than you'd normally see in a kitchen. What do you think?
