When the owners of this New England home decided to renovate their beachside property they chose the muted colours, traditional furniture and natural materials that are characteristic of America’s eastern seaboard. They describe the colour scheme as being inspired by sand and sea, and the relaxed, appealing design captures the mood to perfection.
The wife and daughters all love to cook, and the family enjoys both Thai and western-style food.
They frequently entertain friends so the kitchen sees plenty of use. The owners found the Poggenpohl design team very helpful when it came to planning and choosing the kitchen. The island unit ensures that the cook or cooks can stay part of the conversation while preparing meals. Everything they need for is close at hand. Open shelves match the look of the living area, uniting the two areas and retaining the open and airy feel of the room.
