Romeo Beckham, the son of former footballer David and fashion designer Victoria Beckham is no stranger to style, so when the footballer posted a picture of his farmhouse kitchen online, it was the pale blue kitchen cabinet color that caught our eye.
Conjuring endless skies and infinite seas, pale blue is the color of the moment. Embrace this fresh color to create an uplifting and optimistic space that soothes the soul, similar to Romeo Beckham's modern rustic kitchen.
But what is it that we love so much about blue kitchens? This timeless color is cool and calm and works well in both classic and modern kitchens. Let us count the ways...

Sky blue shades can add such delight and happiness to a space with their inherent freshness but just be careful they don't appear too chilly as the natural light will have a big impact on their perception. It's a wonderful shade for coastal kitchens where it will respond to the light you get near the water, says Patrick O'Donnell, international brand ambassador of Farrow & Ball.
Joyful sky blues, such as the one used in Romeo Beckham's kitchen, are perfect for use in spaces you spend lots of time in. Interior designer, Pandora Taylor adores the versatility of blue.
'If the room gets a lot of natural light the blue will appear quite pale, then when evening comes you get a stronger color developing, a bit like the perfect day-to-night outfit.'
Never be afraid to decorate with blue. Smart and stylish, luxurious and hypnotic, it is totally on trend at the moment, and the latest designs dispel the myth that the color is cold or masculine.
Fresh, airy and imbued with the restorative power of nature, light sky blues have this year been tipped by interiors experts as the perfect backdrop to modern living.
‘Whether we are working or relaxing, creating or exercising, it is essential to have a space that reflects the optimism and desire for a fresh, new start that is top of the agenda for the year ahead,’ says Marianne Shillingford, creative director of Dulux.
Naturally soothing, but equally energizing and hopeful, the shade promises to bring the outside in to enhance well-being. Pair it with neutrals such as white and cream for classic calm, or with stronger tones of charcoal, olive, and navy for a unique, head-turning modern kitchen.
