A Day at the Beach
Siemasko + Verbridge refreshed this coastal house by highlighting the design elements hidden within the structure. The cheerful and ocean inspired style is reflective of the active family who call it home. Removing several walls eliminated underutilized space and gave the living areas a cohesive and natural flow; expanding upon the existing windows allowed more light to fill the home.
The kitchen serves as the hub of the home for this active family. Siemasko + Verbridge reworked the layout and designed a large island with plenty of workspace and corner counter seating. The dark wood cabinets were replaced with crisp white cabinets and accented with white marble countertops. The result is an inviting and functional space for gathering and entertaining.
Nautical details in varying shades of blue give a nod to the home’s coastal community. Nautical charts are used as wallpaper, bold stripes enliven a hallway, and seaside-inspired throw pillows add a playful touch in the family room. The home’s prior formal tendencies have been replaced with a casual and welcoming atmosphere to fit this busy family’s needs.
