Advice For Painting Kitchen With White Tile Countertops

My kitchen is all white--white tile countertops, cabinets, fridge, oven and walls. There is a cobalt blue stripe in the white tiles. I am tired of all white, so, what color could I use for the walls or cabinets that would look good with the cobalt blue?

Cobalt is a pretty intense color. I wouldn't use it as a solid over a large area. Could you use a "Blue Willow" type pattern for wallpaper or curtain fabric? Then use cobalt as an accent such as drawer knobs, canister set, etc.

Cobalt blue is such a beautiful color that can look great with any color. It looks great with literally every color, so I would pick my favorite color, with cobalt accents. Maybe think about whether you want warmer or cooler colors. Yellow or orange would be warm and sunny. Light blue or light green would be cooler, but very pretty. Good luck. (09/13/2007)

I have a similar problem to yours -- too much white in my kitchen -- but I do have peach-colored walls, which are very pretty. I have a lot of cobalt blue accessories and really like the contrast of the dark blue and light peach. Maybe you could paint your walls a light blue and your cabinets peach? (I'm thinking of painting my white cabinets light blue to contrast with the peach walls.) (09/16/2007)

Cobalt blue is used a lot in Russian dinnerware. I would look at the many patterns (google Lomonosov) for ideas.
I like the idea of a pattern on the walls using cobalt blue or toile. Use the Russian color combinations. Check out Mexican or Tuscan ceramic tiles containing cobalt blue for color combinations. (09/17/2007)

Have you thought about staining the cabinets cherry wood? As far as the walls, maybe using the same color as the tile? Or a very light blue? Just an idea. (09/17/2007)
