Looks fantastic!!!  What an amazing colour.  It looks supper modern, very impressive. 

I just painted my cupboards Baby Blue but having lived with it for a week am going to be bolder and paint them again (I left them on the walls for painting and don't think there's been compromise on the finish.  Trying to choose handles / colour at the moment and your pictures are a great inspiration.  Thank you
