Contemporary Coastal Kitchen Features Natural Wood
Black-framed windows add architectural interest to this kitchen while also supplying ample natural light to the space. A natural wood ceiling and coordinating cabinets pair with crisp white walls and countertops to create a casual, coastal feel.
Just like the kiss sculptures on the countertop, we embrace the color and style of this Brentwood kitchen designed by Jackson Paige Interiors! The teal backsplash tile makes a grand statement and complements the blue-patterned window treatment without having to use a carbon-copy color. The style of the off-white cabinetry helps to accentuate its subtle coastal design, along with the dark tones of the kitchen island and round bar stools that also add depth to the space.

Multi-Functional Kitchen with Views of Puget Sound
This space was designed with quilting in mind. The family that owns this house teaches a quilting class, so the countertop of the kitchen island had to be both elegant and durable. It was constructed from Bubinga wood, which can stand up to any beginning quilter. The oversized kitchen island provides seating for students to sit and work, while still maintaining a view of their teachers, peers and the beautiful Puget Sound, which provides serenity and inspiration for the family and the quilters.
Rustic and country touches make this coastal style kitchen, designed by HGTV Design Star contestant Danielle Colding, inviting and fun. From the chalkboard pantry door and cabinets to the rustic pendant lights, this room is casual and family-friendly.

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.
Take a cue from the lighting in this coastal kitchen, which combines sleek style with weathered ceiling beams reminiscent of driftwood from the sea. The glass-domed shade on these pendants strikes a fine balance between those modern and rustic elements in this home in Florida’s Alys Beach community. You’ll find similar pendants priced between $125-$200 at lighting and home decor retailers.
Designer Danielle Colding bought this table with an espresso finish, then sanded it down, added a coat of white paint and quickly removed it. This created a whitewashed effect that evokes the look of driftwood.
