If you missed Part 1 of the 2015 Coastal Virginia Idea House, be sure to check it out! Today, we continue our tour by exploring all the glorious details of the gorgeous white coastal kitchen by Stephen Alexander Homes & Neighborhoods.
I know some people are tired of white kitchens, but honestly, how do you tire of a classic? The contrast between the crisp white cabinets against warm & weathered floors is as timeless as the beach itself.
I love the gorgeous hood over the range and appreciate the molding and millwork detail. And while I’ve never had the privilege of cooking on a professional-grade Thermador appliance, I’m guessing that even boiled water would taste better in this kitchen.
Faucets and hardware are the jewelry of the kitchen and this chrome bridge-style, gooseneck faucet by Brizo is the perfect adornment for the farmhouse sink.
Hello gorgeous! I am swooning over all 12 feet of this kitchen island. It is perfection…and now I’m pretty sure that I need a twelve foot kitchen island in my life. Do you see how the corners of the island look like little columns capped off with quartz? Stunning!
Below you can get a better idea of what the entire kitchen looks like.
Tip: Glass-front cabinetry is a good alternative for those who want an open feel without embracing open shelving.
I also love the idea of creating a custom wine rack on the side of the refrigerator. And while we’re dreaming, we might as well throw in a wine and beverage cooler!
The vintage-inspired school house pendants provide great light over the kitchen and remind me of washed up sea-glass often found on the beach.
The walls and island are aptly painted in Sherwin Williams Tidewater. (This home is geographically located in an area often referred to as Tidewater.)
Tip: For a seamless look, paint your light switch covers and outlets to match your kitchen island.
Just a few more glamour shots before we move on…
Tilt your head to the side for me, that’s beautiful!
Okay and now turn around. Gorgeous! 🙂
Directly next to the kitchen is the spacious and open walk-in pantry with appliance shelf and metal pull-out bins.
Tip: Place chalkboard decals for each day of the week for quick meal planning at a glance.
