The walls of this coastal breakfast nook are painted a fresh white, Benjamin Moore's Swiss Coffee, highlighting the gray of the charming banquette bench. A natural oak stained table and dining chairs are paired with a white airy drum light for a modern touch. Designer Becki Owens ties the look together with the pink block print fabric of the window treatments and pink and neutral throw pillows.
Floor-to-ceiling striped linen curtains can be pulled together to separate the dining room from the kitchen for increased privacy. The kitchen's light blue island with white quartz counter offers an eating area and extra storage.
A bright and airy coastal outdoor living room offers a comfy seating area. The exposed wood ceiling sets the modern-rustic feel for the room which is continued with wicker furniture and reclaimed wood coffee table. A bright blue rug, a yellow light fixture and yellow-striped pillows add a fun pop of color to the space.
Eclectic Kitchen with Gray, Yellow and White Tile and Art
Switching out the window treatments in your kitchen can be a super quick and easy way to change up your decor. Have a decoration you’ve always loved, but the color just didn't go with the rest of your kitchen? Find a window treatment that brings that color in, or try something in your same kitchen colors with a new pattern. In this 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Competition winning kitchen, designer Cheryl Kees Clendenon installed a floral shade with grays and yellows to match the tile work and dishes already on display.
High-Tech Kitchen Cooktop With Glass Tile Backsplash
A clear glass tile backsplash provides a sleek, clean background for the stainless steel range hood and high-tech cooktop. It has a child safety lock, anti-overflow system and touchscreen capabilities for easy meal preparation. A stainless steel pot filler is mounted above to cooktop for convenience.
Breezy fabrics, woven textures and seashells work surprisingly well with evergreens, mercury glass and elegant china. With seashells available in craft stores year round, you don't have to live by the seaside to use beach inspired decor when the holidays roll around. Add in favorite pieces beach vacation finds to give the table a personal touch.
Seashells collected during the homeowner’s family trips to the ocean were the perfect choice to create a personalized backsplash in a vacation home. Designer Kelli Kaufer of Kelli Kaufer Designs attached the seashells to the wall with an all-in-one sanded grout, available at any hardware store. No additional grouting required! “Apply a clear sealer once it’s dry to make the backsplash easier to clean later,” says Kaufer.
