I've got the blues

So on my quest for that perfect blue I came across this photo.

It is from Cynthia's Cottage Design and I just LOVE it. (Speaking of love, her blog makes me wish I could just crawl through my computer and live in her house, especially her kitchen) She has so much talent for pulling the cutest stuff together and I like that she is also a fan of the color blue. Anyway, I zipped her an email asking her what color she used on the island and she wrote me back saying it was Yarmouth Blue. I'm hitting the Home Depot tomorrow to pick up a little test pot and I can't wait to see how it looks. Isn't blogland great? So many talented women who are willing to help a girl out.
Thanks Cyndie!!

So I have started painting my kitchen cabinets. Well, I have painted one. I wanted to start small so I wouldn't get overwhelmed. It was pretty painless and I think the other cabinets will go just as smoothly. However, the thought of painting my lower cabinets white is making me nervous. I've been looking at pics of kitchens where the lower cabinets are painted a darker. I think I'm liking this look. I would love to find a nice chambray blue color, but I'm undecided. do I really want a red, white and blue kitchen??? If anyone out there has a good light blue PLEASE share.
Hope everyone is enjoying these last few days of summer. School starts Thursday and I swear this has been the fastest summer ever!! I think the lack of sunshine in the good Pacific Northwest didn't help. Oh well :0)
