Denim pine

via Re-Nest
No, that's not poor lighting. The knotty pine in the cabinets really does have a blue-ish tinge. It's from a pine beetle infestation - Mountain Pine Beetle, to be exact.

The beetles spread a fungus that causes the wood to develop a blue stain before the tree dies. Once, the wood had been rejected. Now it's become sought-after.

Personally I think it's nice-looking. If I owned my place, I'd definitely consider denim pine cabinets.
