White kitchens are undeniably popular right now, but lately it seems like more people are taking chances with color. When these homeowners decided to remodel this 1930s rental home in Hollywood and turn it back into a single-family residence, they dared to go bold with blue…
The vibrant cabinet paint color the homeowners chose is “Stiffkey Blue” by Farrow & Ball. They replaced the peninsula with an island that opens the kitchen to the adjoining breakfast room and turned it into one big, open space. Here’s another photo that shows how the kitchen looked before the remodel:
The new island top is a mix of reclaimed pine and oak wood with a wax finish, and the rest of the countertops are Carrara marble.
They were able to keep the original windows that overlook Hollywood Boulevard. Here are the before and after floorplans:
As much as I like white kitchens — mine included! — it’s fun to see something different. If you could paint your cabinets any color, what would it be?
