Coastal View

This unique property had a spectacular location but a dated interior with disjointed walls and crevices. It took significant effort to transform the space, including moving a wall to center the range, giving the room the symmetrical focal point it deserved.

The goal was to create a clean and modern space to compliment the breathtaking views with warm organic accents to avoid feeling sterile. The open, floating shelves with integrated LED lighting were matched to the white bleached oak used in the ceiling and floor. The team added a soffit around the recessed ceiling with oak detailing to draw one’s attention up, giving the room an inviting warmth. To allow room for the expansive windows, outlets were cut into the counters and elevate by touch. Paneling the appliances gave the room a serene feel, with the Galley workstation and BlueStar range making it a true cook’s kitchen. 

The inset shaker cabinetry with bronze hardware is classic and simple, and serves as the perfect setting for the continuous, marble slabs used for the backsplash, counters and hood. Designed by the homeowner and Kathy Yates Interiors, the hood is made from the same marble used throughout, with artful veining making a dramatic statement.
