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.
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.
Designed to optimize the functionality of the space, this white coastal kitchen is grouped into various distinct work zones. The clean-up zone features an elevated dishwasher in the main island, allowing ease of loading and unloading. A twin bin waste pull-out is conveniently located to the right side of the sink. A second island with a small entertaining sink and under-counter refrigerator provides a perfect space for an intimate family gathering.
The gleaming white kitchen has a L-shaped island seating as well as a round glass dining table with seating for four. The large windows allow for amazing ocean views from the kitchen and dining spaces.
