We recently welcomed an incredibly talented new design team, Bungalow 56, to The List last week and I am so thrilled to be featuring one of their stunning renovations today! With the help of Nicolls Design Build, this light filled space is giving me life with a vibe that can only be described as the perfect combo of coastal farmhouse with just the right amount of rustic meets industrial. Kristen Vincent‘s images speak for themselves, but make sure to read a bit about the design vision below!
From Bungalow 56… When we walked into this dated, dark home in the Coronado Cays we instantly saw it’s amazing potential. The high ceilings, the natural light and the fun spiral staircase were features we knew we wanted to showcase in our design. Initially the kitchen was closed off from the dining room/living room area so we removed that wall and raised the ceilings. Our design concept for this home was to create a welcoming, bright, and relaxed beach house that was renter friendly and functional.
In the kitchen we layered shades of white and gray and added contrast in the lighting and sink faucet with a pop of black. The backsplash is an elongated subway tile with a textured finish and adds a fun dimensional aspect. To add a fun beachy element we trimmed out the kitchen hood with wood. The large kitchen island has a shiplap look underneath that is actually extra storage!
The living room boasts 20 foot ceilings so we grounded the space by facing out the fireplace in concrete and doing a shiplap up the rest of the wall in white. Before the remodel the kitchen and dining space were tile and the living room was carpet, which chopped up the space so we ran a wood looking porcelain floor throughout the entire home to help the opening living areas flow together.
