Blue Kitchens Are Trending

Blue is hot in kitchen designs right now. Unlike other colors, blue can act almost like a neutral, says interior designer Christina Tello, an interior designer and owner of Tello Interiors in Portland, Oregon. Just think about the pens you write with, she says. "You don't think of blue ink as an accent color," Christina says. "It can carry a range of tone — you can go dark and deep with it, or you can go lighter and brighter."

"Navy was a burning hot trend a few years ago, but now we’re really seeing pale blues make their mark," says Michelle Gage, who designed this kitchen.
