Gasp. Isn’t that blue painted ceiling amazing?

I think all mothers could use a butler’s pantry like this! At least I could. Simply gorgeous all the way around.

Happy Mother’s Day to you all!

  3. Love it! The only thing on my someday house wishlist is a butler’s pantry. Both cottages have them and I just love the look. That ceiling is amazing.

    Happy Mother’s Day to you, Melissa!! xo

  4. Oh yes! A painted ceiling and anything but white is far preferable. What a great kitchen and pantry. Happy Mother’s Day, Melissa!

  5. We’re looking at an 1850’s home (LOVE the old houses!) this week, and it has a butler’s pantry! The whole kitchen/pantry really need some TLC, but it’s so fun to see the photos of inspiring spaces to spark the “what could be” in my imagination!

  8. A Butler’s Pantry is definately on my wish list! Perhaps I’ll add a blue ceiling to my wish list too =)

  9. Hi Melissa-

    That is quite an impressive Butler’s pantry. It is the size of some kitchens. I love that it has a desk area, too. Someday…

    My best- Diane

  17. *sigh* that Butler’s pantry is bigger than my whole kitchen! I do love the blue ceiling. I did that in a hall way and it really added some pizazz!

  18. Melissa you made a mistake, I think you meant to say “kitchen.” That CANNOT be a butler’s pantry! Is that really a butler’s pantry? That is incredible!!!!

  19. Happy Mother’s Day Melissa &All! :) when I can get movin’ or get consistent help (i have wonderful friends but they have lives/kids/jobs) EVERY ceiling will be in *color*. I am in neutral right now but my heart&brain only function in *color*. Love HB, too :) Saw a great piece on installing tin ceiling panels recently too. Company’s been making for a hundred years. Can’t decide wall or ceiling,tho. Maybe wall in kitchen&ceiling in bathrm…hmmm. In copper :) yeh dream on… :D

  20. I am so loving that blue ceiling. Lust in my heart, I tell you!I can’t decide whether I want to eat it or swim in it. lol

  21. Oh, I love that! The ceiling colour is perfect! I can’t wait to live in a house without popcorn ceilings! Even if I have to scrape it all off myself! (which I may be doing in our little mudroom/back entry.)

  22. I’d never considered that, but man it is beautiful!

  23. YES, the blue painted ceiling is SUPER amazing. I used to have a blue ceiling inside my store and it looks good. It accentuated the color of my walls.

    What I inspired the most about the photo is its flooring. It perfectly matches the cabinets.

  26. Absolutely love that blue ceiling. The color is perfect! My friend once painted a mural on part of the low ceiling in her kitchen. It was so magical. It turned what was a flaw into a design element.

  29. That butler’s pantry is to die for! Seriously drooling.

    My husband and I just converted our gun rack (seriously, our house came with a built-in gun rack) into a butler’s pantry/wine rack. So much more useful now! Everyone deserves a good butler’s pantry!

    Thanks for sharing the pic!
