Our tour of this dream beach house designed by Lindsey Cheek of Gathered continues! (Go here if you missed the living and dining room.) There’s no denying the Wilmington, North Carolina-based interior designer was inspired by the Figure Eight Island home’s stunning water views. The crisp, bright gourmet kitchen makes the most of the beach view while splashes of turquoise perfectly complement it. The addition of natural texture only adds to the coastal vibe! What’s most inspiring to me is that the designer kept the same cabinets, same appliances, same layout–yet a fresh coat of paint and major updates on finishes and lighting completely transformed the space (see the before pics at the end)! Scroll on for more great images by Mille Holloman and Amanda Holloman!
The designer gave the barstools a complete makeover with turquoise cushions.
Look closely and you’ll see South Carolina oyster shells in the Bretagne Blue recycled glass countertop from Vetrazzo. SO beautiful!
Love the gleaming subway tile–2 x 8 Glass Ice Mint with Avalanche grout. A fab pairing with the Caesarstone in Pure White.
Oh yes, this would definitely inspire me to do some cooking!
This cute setup is perfect for playing games, extra seating or a kids’ table. Those bistro chairs are fantastic!
Loving the sea-inspired wallpaper on the stairway, not to mention the gorgeous turquoise grasscloth in the powder bath below!
Like I mentioned in the last post, this beach house was a rental for many years before the client purchased it. I love how the designer kept some of the original pieces but updated them with a fresh new look. Most everything else is available for purchase through Lindsey Cheek’s design studio and shop Gathered–visit them for more info. And be sure to follow them on Instagram for even more inspiration!
Now for the ‘before’ shots:
I’d say that was quite the upgrade!! Be sure to come back to see the bedrooms, bathrooms and fabulous solarium! If you missed Day 1 of the tour, go here.
