Eastern white pine brings the color of sand into a beach house kitchen.
Simplistic and rustic are usually not the first words that come to mind when I’m asked to describe a white pine beach house kitchen. But that is exactly what the owners of this timber-frame home received from their architect. It is located in Seaside, Florida, a “new urbanist” town that began development in the 1980s and is famous for its architecture, walk-ability and urban spaces. Perhaps that’s why this cottage style kitchen also manages to look modern as well as charming.
The Florida Panhandle is known for its sugar white beaches, So the watered down paint mixture washed over the eastern white pine brings the sand colors inside. Open cabinets and a vintage plate rack display every day dishes. The sideboard with drawers, another vintage piece, replaces lower cabinets along one wall. Cabinet hardware is omitted in favor of cutouts. The rough wood texture of the tongue-and-groove planks, cabinets and beams of this Charleston side-yard home are anything other than the typical beach house; a timeless design.
