Soothing Vintage Blues and Greens

Soft, optimistic shades of blue and green bring the outdoors in and can make a kitchen visually interesting in a subtler way than higher-contrast two-color schemes. In the kitchen shown here, cheerful bands of green and blue add pep to a compact workspace and blend well with wood countertops and floors that have warm amber and cherry undertones. These casual, comforting colors have an inherent versatility, says Dorienne West Farzan, an architectural designer and colorist in Newport, Rhode Island, and can be equally at home in a seaside setting or a vintage cottage or amid retro furnishings.
