Inspired by the beauty of their surroundings, the homeowners wanted to design a modern beach house with clean, warm style.
Renovating this existing home required removing cabinets along the main wall to make room for a new hood, which also allowed more light into the kitchen from the surrounding windows. DEANE designed an oversized custom hood in polished and brushed stainless steel with a gallery detail and two-tiered shape over a Wolf 30″ gas range for drama. A peninsula was removed to make way for a large island painted in Whale Grey and anchored by woven white leather bar stools. Blue Cloud leathered quartzite countertops inspired by sand and sea were used to add texture throughout the space. The framed inset Shaker cabinets have hardware in polished nickel for shine and are complemented by pendant lighting from Urban Electric. Tall kitchen doors have glass panels up top to display collectibles. The original floors were replaced with wide plank, bleached oak giving the space a lightened effect. This carries over to the family room with a built-in, contoured unit featuring a ventless fireplace and recessed television, with the same Blue Cloud stone in the fireplace surround.
