Cupboards - colour and make? - I'm another one interested in who made the cabinets, and what was used to achieve that rich dark stain? They look like Ikea, with a Minwax stain, but I'd like to know for sure!

Nah - I do get frustrated with Houzz pros who post glamour shots and never bother to follow up in case there are questions - reflects pretty badly on their (lack of) business skills, I suspect!

Did anyone ever find out the color of stain used on the cabinets? I'm looking at Minwax online, but their blues don't seem as bright.

Beautiful Kitchen! What is the height of the wall behind the cooktop, - I love how you expanded space and light between 2 rooms with your pass-thru! We are planning something similar for those same reasons. How high is the space between the cooktop and the bottom of your pass-thru. Do you know if owners have been happy with that height?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Margaret Everton added this to Feeling Blue: Incorporating Color in New Ways
This is an unusual take on blue: keeping the walls white while adding a LOT of marine blue throughout the kitchen and into the adjoining rooms.
Natalie Myers added this to Color Splash: Cool Blue Kitchens
Turning to the dark side, navy blue is hot hot hot and midnight blue cabinets can feel glamorous and sexy. Yes, a kitchen can be glamorous and sexy.
Most people want their kitchen to feel warm and inviting, and that can be a challenge when using blue. However, by using deeper, warm shades of blue you can still achieve a look that is comfortable and relaxed.Suggested paint pick: Indigo, Sherwin-Williams
