Watery Blue Wallpaper Evokes Look of Ocean in Beach House Bathroom
Watery blue wallpaper brings the look of the ocean waters into the bathroom in this New Hampshire beach house. Soft-sided baskets offer an affordable yet attractive way to stow away extra towels and toilet paper for guests.
Bold Blue Kitchen Cabinets Feature Shiplap-Style Paneling
The horizontal detail of the cabinetry fronts are echoed in the paneling of the vaulted ceiling, creating a visually balanced look in this contemporary coastal kitchen. The shiplap-style paneling helps mask the drawer seams. Designer Kristina Crestin opted against upper shelving in the sink area to balance the bold look of the cabinets and maintain a light, airy look in the space.
Cabinets, Tiles and Floating Shelves Create California Coastal Vibe in Kitchen
Horizontal lines carried through the cabinetry, tile work and floating shelves unify the design elements of this California coastal-style kitchen. Benjamin Moore's "Blue Suede Shoes" provides the bold color to the cabinets and island base and is balanced by the sleek white tiles on the backsplash behind the stove and around the windows and the white paneled, vaulted ceiling.
Bright Blue Kitchen Island With Rustic Wood Barstools
Rustic barstools cozy up to the blue kitchen island painted with Benjamin Moore's "Blue Suede Shoes." Large glass pendant lights help visually balance the boldness of the island base with their size. The thick countertops were a splurge element for the homeowners but were balanced by more affordable pieces throughout the home.
To give this beach house a unique feel, designers traded a paler palette for crisp navy and bright green decor against a fresh white backdrop. Textures like the caned dining chairs are another nod to the beachy setting.
Entry Mudroom Offers Spot to Shed and Store Sandy Shoes
A bench by the door in the entry mudroom of this New Hampshire beach house provides a spot to take off sandy shoes, and individual hampers beneath it offer a place to stash flip flops or beach towels. The bold blue wall introduces the color palette that unites each room of the house.
Bright Blue Kitchen Island Adds Fun Twist to Coastal Vibe
Benjamin Moore's 'Blue Suede Shoes' paint adds a fun twist to the cool contemporary coastal vibe to the kitchen in this New Hampshire beach home. Shiplap-style paneling helps conceal some of drawer seams in the cabinetry, and open shelving continues those lines while balancing the weight of the blue to keep the space feeling open and airy. Thick countertops were a splurge for the homeowners but were balanced by lower-cost touches like the decorative lighting.
Soothing blue walls appear to recede, making this coastal-style bath appear larger. Built-in shelving takes advantage of an awkward corner next to the tub while a long double vanity provides ample counter space.
