1. Sea + Sky

One no-fail approach: using two shades of the same color. In this large open kitchen, designed by architect Stuart Disston, the deep-blue island takes center stage, while sky-hued cabinets define the perimeter. Interior designer Sherrill Canet chose the custom shades to ground the high-ceilinged space and harmonize with the stainless-steel appliances and the island's bands of dark wood.
