Fenwick Island Beach House
A newly designed kitchen for a large extended family where food preparation and serving/sharing could be accomplished. A buffet was designed and built in to the space to separate the kitchen from the eating area with a custom table to accommodate seating for 14. The gathering place needed to have the look of driftwood which was accomplished with a translucent white paint on cherry that allowed the grain patterns of the wood to peak through. The "sand through" technique further enhanced the look of driftwood. The style is classic with small rails on the top and larger rails below with a flat center panel. Simple hardware completes the look. Special soapstone was found that reflected the ocean with deep green and blue areas that swirl like water. Small mosaic tile were mixed with mother of pearl. Pendant light reflected by nautical lanterns complete the scene.
