An all-white contemporary kitchen accented with pops of cobalt and periwinkle blue was featured in a recent article in Westchester Home. The kitchen’s frameless, flat-paneled high-gloss white and glass front cabinets, with stainless countertops and appliances, act as a canvas for the dramatic blue color accents. The kitchen was designed by Tom Vecchio, Senior Designer at Bilotta Kitchens and Eva Bouhassira, Architect PC.
The article makes several recommendations on how to add a pop of color to an all-white design in a way that makes a big statement but is relatively inexpensive and easily replaceable if the homeowner tires of the look. Color can come in the form of accessories or through the use of paint, wallpaper, or tile in small areas. In the featured kitchen, Tom introduced a textured periwinkle tile behind the sink and also added a cobalt blue two-sided waterfall slab top to the center island. “It’s easily replaceable, as it’s literally two sides,” said Tom.
Another place to add color and interest is the cabinet hardware. “Knobs can really be the jewel on the cabinet and add both color and texture,” said Tom.
