Designer Becki Owens transformed this formerly dark Tuscan kitchen into an inviting, coastal heart of the home. Calcutta marble is used for the countertops and backsplash, and the once brown cabinets are painted bright white, bringing a fresh new look to the space. Soft color is brought into the room with a custom-made linen Roman shade.
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.

“Undress your kitchen,” suggests Donna Mathis of Atlanta-based Haven Design Works. “Then thoughtfully put the accessories back in place -- maybe not all of them can truly make a huge difference in how your kitchen looks.” Designer Cheryl Kees Clendenon of Florida's In Detail Interiors thoughtfully picked a color pattern that went with the vibe she was creating for this coastal kitchen. With its unique tile, window shades and just a few accessories carefully chosen to complement the color scheme, this kitchen won a 2016 National Kitchen + Bath Association Design Competition award.
