Elegant Shades of Blue

Rich, saturated shades of blue have a time-honored, traditional look and evoke Chinese porcelain, says Josette Buisson, a color forecaster who works with PPG Pittsburgh Paints. Buisson, who says she is seeing more of these blues in living rooms and kitchens, likes to layer dark and midtone indigos for an understated elegance similar to the effect in the space shown here. The blues on the walls and cabinets are unified by a blue-and-white tile mural and extend an element of formality from the open dining room into the cook space, an effect that is reinforced by black countertops and chairs and a table painted navy blue.
