As seen on HGTV's Vacation House for Free, Matt's design for this beautiful coastal kitchen incorporates the natural colors of the ocean and sky, as well as material that can be found naturally, such as the wood for the ceiling.
The shiplap paneling behind the windows and cabinets in this kitchen instantly gives a friendly nautical vibe. Add lemon-yellow shades and clean-lined pendants and the whole room is ready for laid-back, beachy fun.
The beach-blue 6-foot island, capped in white quartz countertops, serves as both workspace and casual-chic dining area in the kitchen of HGTV Smart Home 2013. Pendant lights hang above the island to provide functional statement pieces.
After an afternoon in the sun, guests can head towards the kitchen to refuel. Here, light wood cabinets keep plates and utensils within easy reach, while a long counter with five wicker stools invites everyone to take a seat.
For a home near the ocean, a look that's laid-back, sandy feet-friendly and with a few elegant touches is just right. This kitchen invites hanging out with plenty of barstools and a large island. Brass pendants warm up all the white.
Breathtaking ocean views serve as the backdrop for this beach cottage kitchen. Natural wood cabinets match the wood ceiling and floors for a cohesive look and a sense of warmth. Nautical pendant lights are the perfect finishing touch.
The kitchen island was painted a soft navy and topped with white Imperial Danby marble to create depth within the space. The eat-in kitchen opens up directly to the outdoor pool area, perfect for indoor-outdoor entertaining.
With its bright green-and-blue pattern, the backsplash brings the fun to this open plan kitchen. On the ceiling, reclaimed wood is an ideal foil to the cheerful colors. Kitchen backsplash: Ann Sacks Savoy Hive Mosaic; industrial pendants: IKEA
In this open concept living area that includes a kitchen as well as several sitting areas, a common blue-and-white palette helps unify the layout. The kitchen's blue shade, backsplash and barstools visually tie in with similar shades by the fireplace.
