If you're in need of colorful ideas, look no further than Millie Bobby Brown's blue kitchen. After all, the start of the new year is the perfect time to refresh your space and try something a little more unique.
In a recent Instagram post, Millie gave us a look at her colorful kitchen while making a delicious hot chocolate (we're for sure craving one now). Her blue cabinets, tiled backsplash, and colorful accessories are all you need to say goodbye to that all-white kitchen of the past.
Makeover your space with affordable dupes of Millie's kitchen ideas. We asked design experts to weigh in, plus found the best buys to help you get the look.
Millie Bobby Brown's blue kitchen
While Millie takes us through how to prepare a cozy cup of hot chocolate, we couldn't help but notice her colorful small kitchen. "Millie's kitchen is a great example of how to incorporate color without it looking too overwhelming," says interior designer, Artem Kropovinsky.
Artem Kropovinsky is an interior design expert and founder of Arsight, an award-winning interior design studio based in New York.
Her cabinets are painted a rich royal blue color, right in line with the small space color trends for 2024. She created a stunning tile backsplash above her stove with a bold pattern. Plus, she has plenty of fun accents and kitchen accessories, like her floral kettle, and clear reusable milk bottle to make the look really pop with modernity.
"The patterned tiles compliment the blue shade perfectly and look harmonious," says Kropovinsky. "The color Millie chose works really well to add contrast so it doesn't look washed out like some kitchens can if they're all-white."
How to get the look
You can recreate Millie Bobby Brown's blue kitchen pretty easily, even if you're in a tiny space or apartment kitchen. "Millie's look can easily be achieved, even if you're a beginner, with some pretty simple DIYs," says Lucy Searle, Content Director of Real Homes.
"Painting kitchen cabinets is a good project to start off with as the finished product will have the most impact," says Lucy. "Just make sure to properly prepare your surfaces, otherwise it may look patchy in the end."
Then move on to her fun backsplash. If you can't install tiles, you may want to consider peel-and-stick wall tiles instead. Don't lose your security deposit on damages!
