IN THE DETAILS The unique lighting, layered texture, dark and light colors, and use of shiplap create instant charm. The Inchyra Blue cabinetry reads blue-green-gray and creates an unmatched moodiness. In west-facing rooms, Inchyra Blue looks more blue as the day progresses.


THIS KITCHEN, DESIGNED by 2017 and the upcoming 2018 Detroit Home Design Awards judge Meg Lonergan (meglonergan.com), left, of Texas, won a PaperCity Design Award not only because of its good use of a small space, but also its colors. A mix of crisp, clean whites and a mysterious blue-green shade add up to absolute comfort. Lonergan chose a paint called Inchyra Blue, from the Farrow & Ball collection, for the cabinetry. Experts say the bespoke color, originally made for Lord and Lady Inchyra at Scotland’s historic Inchyra House (it now coats their impressive barn’s exterior doors), complements the moody Scottish skies. “I love that blue-green because it’s a color that’s hard to describe,” Lonergan says. “It changes in the light and at different times of day, and we were dying to use it. This kitchen was the perfect place.”
