Tempting turquoise. Don’t you just want to dive into this kitchen? The turquoise back wall of cabinetry is done in automotive paint, giving it a dreamy sheen. Notice how the warmth of the blushing beige-toned terrazzo floor complements the coolness of the turquoise. And the island, made of quarter-sawn African Beli wood cabinets, further draws your eye to the turquoise. For a similar turquoise, try Yosemite Blue by Benjamin Moore or St. Barths by Fine Paints of Europe. For a similar white paint color, try All White by Farrow & Ball.
Piper initiated the bold cabinetry color choice. Inspired by a turquoise platter she found at an antiques store, she knew the happy hue would make a statement in the open kitchen and warm up the home's steel and brass palette. A durable lacquer finish used in auto shops gives the cabinets their sturdy shine. Counters: Hanstone Quartz; floors: polished concrete; bar stools: vintage
