Melanie’s Blue & Harbor Gray Kitchen

Name: Melanie
Location: Catonsville, Maryland
Type of Home: 1950s rowhouse

Color Inspiration: I have to confess — the kitchen cabinets were there when we moved in, and in amazing shape! We decided to embrace the turquoise and figured the only color we couldn’t use was a competing blue. Using the black inset on the cabinets as a base, we went with black and white tiles on the diagonal to make the galley kitchen seem larger. And we used red, yellow, apple green, and orange here and there to brighten up the narrow space.

Give Melanie a THUMBS UP if you think this room belongs in the finals!

Throwback Turquoise

Colors Used: Black and white Congoleum 16″ tiles Walls – Benjamin Moore Harbor Gray AC25 LG French door black refrigerator Turquoise Cabinets – there before we moved in Crate and Barrel wall pot rack (no longer available)

Color Tip: A little color goes a long way (at least with bright accents). Oh, be careful with gray – we went through two previous colors before we found the right one, without tints of pink or blue. But paint’s easy to fix.
