With the extra square footage and a french door added to the left of the kitchen, the Cousins on Call demolished old wall that separated the kitchen from the living room. The Betsy family now has two large rooms that flow together. The family can cook on the large oversized island, while others relax in the living room without feeling detached from the rest of the family or guests. The large new windows and french doors fill both rooms with bright warm light.
Pastel blue, yellow, pink, and green give a bright feel to this kitchen eating area. A beaded crystal chandelier hangs over an oval table. Clear chairs blend in with the rest of the kitchen and a corner shelf holds vintage photos.
Since the main level is elevated roughly 12′ off the ground, it appears as though the house is actually sitting directly on the water. With several windows surrounding the space, the kitchen area has a lovely view of the ocean from any seat in the space.
Following a trend of eliminating formal dining rooms, the largest dining area is located within the kitchen of this home. The homeowners say they use this table daily where in previous homes with separate dining rooms, their large table was only used a few times a year.
This vibrant green dining space is located within a spacious great room, complete with kitchen and sitting areas. The long wood table is surrounded by upholstered green chairs, as well as two brown rattan chairs at the ends of the table. Candles, a contemporary branch sculpture and two industrial pendant lights complete the polished look of the room.
An open-plan living room and kitchen area, large floor-to-ceiling windows that optimize the skyline views. The family gathers in this central space for TV and games. The parents can also watch the kids play in the pool.
