The Perfect Beach House Kitchen


This is one of my favorite projects because the goal was to have FUN...It is a summer house with amazing views. The family is wonderful and wanted this home to be light airy and kid proof!! Coastal living ran this story in June of 09. It now is featured on their great design site in the section called 50 favorite kitchens. When we were designing the kitchen we "pondered" long and hard about doing this wonderful turquoise color in such a bold manner. We were looking for major "Happiness Factor" and we got it!!!!! The old style vent and the chrome(which is an upcharge when you purchase the stove) almost make we want to cook something.

The site is called www.myhomeideas.com.

Magazines are wonderful!!!! Maybe Cottage Living will come back one day.....{ Some of the photos are actualy from Cottage Living}

Ps.. This is another photograph taken by Richard Leo Johnson of Alantic Archives.com. The man is amazing....

I remember when I got that issue of Coastal Living...I about died. It still remains my favorite kitchen of all-time. That whole house is a total dream!

It's so wonderfully fresh and friendly. The stove reminds me of one I had, and loved, in a dolls house when I was about 8!!!!!

This is my favorite kitchen of all time too. I think the first time I saw it was Erin's House of Turquoise. I love, love, love it!
