The designer of this room Lee Ann Thornton stated in an interview with HouseBeautiful’s Barbara King, that “the deep lacquered blue in the butler’s pantry is sharp and dramatic — it makes the eye dance”. It’s no wonder both rooms work so well, as blue and white are Lee Ann Thornton’s signature colours.

The clever use of the mirror in this room can really be appreciated. It not only breaks up the glossy blue walls, it reflects the light back into the room from both the ceiling light and the window, keeping what could of been a dark room looking bright and welcoming.
