Contemporary Cottage Kitchen With Rolling Library Ladder

This San Francisco space feels like a country retreat, thanks to elegant archways, handsome hexagonal tile, broad expanses of pale wood and custom French blue cabinetry. Did we mention the rolling library ladder for reaching sky-high storage?

Blue Transitional Chef Kitchen With Ladder

Benjamin Moore's Stillwater Blue bathes this kitchen's cabinetry in soothing calm. The color is so pretty with the brass and light wood accents.

Blue Transitional Kitchen With Double Ovens

For a little extra prep space, this kitchen has a slim island. The countertop extends far out on one end, just right for tucking a barstool or two underneath.

Arched Kitchen Cabinet With Blue Tiles

This kitchen cabinet ups the style bar on several levels. First off: its elegant arched shape. Secondly, its fun surprise of blue tiles on display through the glass-front doors.

Blue Transitional Kitchen With Branch Arrangement

The warmth of this kitchen's pale wood island and barstools and its brass accents is beautifully contrasted by the cool blue-gray cabinets. Paint color: Benjamin Moore Stillwater Blue

Kitchen Island With Leaf Arrangement

An island need not be wide to be helpful. This slim one has room enough to fit two stools at one end with plenty of countertop left over for prepping.

Blue Transitional Kitchen With Wood Ladder

In a pretty departure from the all-white kitchen, this one chooses a serene blue for its cabinets and range hood. To maximize storage, cabinets climb all the way to the ceiling and are easily reached by a handy rolling ladder.
