La Cucina- part deux.

Ink Blue!

...is what Sarah said,
A color I became very aware of in Norway this summer.
Somehow I must have lived with this color in my head for some time-
because there was no question
what the new color in the kitchen would be.
Yet, an unexpected color for me.
It's so dark it becomes a neutral.
I love how it picks up the blues in the tile and makes the maple cabinets more of a feature.
Changed out my fuchsia lamp
 to a simple silver farm style lamp
works with the counter tops.
Painted the bench red- contrasting the blue.
 happy. happy. happy.
The paint chip is:
 5009-1 Black Evergreen
Valspar American Tradition
