Bring Home the Beach
With the right mix of tranquil colors, organic textures, and playful accents, this room creates perfect coastal style.
A light-blue shade on the cabinets and island complements the sea-inspired backsplash and softens stainless steel appliances and dark countertops and floors. Atlanta designer Carter Kay started with the tile, and the color inspired the palette for the entire house. A hint of iridescent shimmer sets off the blue cabinetry and sandy trim and ceiling.
