Cooling & Tranquil: Light Blue Kitchens

We have a light blue bathroom. The color alone has such a cooling effect that we're considering it for the kitchen, too. What do you think - could color alone help cool the kitchen?

5 A strong blue hue matched by a black chandelier.

SECOND ROW:

7 The kitchen from the motion picture The Good Wife.
8 A Manhattan studio kitchen by Michael Rubin Architects.
9 The light blue in these beautiful tiles is matched by the ceiling color.
