High gloss white paint on beadboard creates a light-reflecting ceiling in a luminous beach house.
At the beach, referencing boats seems like a logical design choice. Along with barometers and surface-mounted light fixtures in the shape of glowing portholes, there is a slickly painted beadboard ceiling that feels like an upside down ship’s deck. Sand-colored tile on the floor and similar marble on top of the island work well with the white to keep things neutral.
Pendants provide task lighting over the island where there is a sink and a curved top on one side. On each side of the pro-style range are stainless steel counters plus shallow shelves that run just below the windows to create a cubby-like space below and shallow display shelves above. Boxed-in shelving is used in the difficult corner to the right of the window.
All the quality basics are evident, too: built-in Sub-Zero and a hutch with glass-door upper cabinets with drawers resting directly on base cabinets for an English chest-on-chest look. A vertical wine storage rack is less than ideally positioned next to the fridge plus there’s a big book shelf and grand pantry.
Placing the enameled farm sink in the island gives the owner view into the sun porch and outside. The bridge faucet with goose neck spout, offset legs and porcelain handles puts some sink jewelry on the otherwise plain deck.
