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.
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.
Three long, wooden floating shelves line the kitchen area of the game room and are gorgeously curated with contemporary design pieces that are illuminated with under-shelf lighting. Below, walnut cabinetry provides plenty of storage space for snacks and board games.
