Look! Rich Blue Shelving in the Kitchen

There's not a lot to say about this photo — except that we stopped and stared, and immediately decided to paint a bunch of kitchen shelves blue. OK, maybe not, but we're pretty smitten with this color in the kitchen right now.

Yes, we talk a lot about open shelving, and yes it has its challenges and its practical applications. But every now and then we just get so smitten by a particular installation. We really like the way the blue makes the white dishes pop, and how it makes a very simple, streamlined kitchen feel rich and warm.
