Absolutely stunning! I'd do it if I had one. I know, my powder room!

Thank you for all of the great feedback! I agree this is quite a gutsy use of color in this small space. It required several painstaking coats of high gloss paint to achieve this look. While most of the house is finished in a neutral palette, this Butler's Pantry as well as the red Study make quite a statement with color.

Gorgeous!! Floor plan - Just wanted to say I adore this home! Love the wide entrance hall! Beautiful treatment of each room without going overboard! Is this a custom floor plan? Thank you!

The blue paint in the butler's pantry is a stunning and bold choice! Unfortunately, because the client designed the interiors of the home themselves, we do not know the exact color of paint that was used.

This roughly 5' wide X 15' long. A butler's pantry or wet bar can take on various sizes depending on your needs. We have creatively arranged them in various nooks and crannies, as a hallway passage or designed them into floor plan like this instance.

Home Depot has a magazine out this month with what appears to be very much the same color. Maybe they have an answer.

Thank you to everyone who helped try to answer this question. Unfortunately we do not have any information on the exact brand and color of the paint used in this butler's pantry. Hopefully the the other users' suggestions are helpful.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Sample Bright Color in the Kitchen
Commit: A butler's pantry is the perfect spot for floor-to-ceiling saturation.
4. Strong statement. Paint your butler's pantry walls and cabinetry a strong color to bring contrast and drama. A unique wall covering adds unexpected style to this pantry's ceiling. See how to warm your space with a wallpapered ceiling
… make it dramatic. No matter how you use your favorite shade of blue, take a moment to think about why you like it and how it will affect your space. You might just learn something new — not only about the color, but about yourself.More: Dreaming in Color: 10 Beautiful Blue Bedrooms
