Coastal Colonial

Coastal Colonial Kitchen with Oyster Bay Finished Cabinets
Photo: Randy Godeau

"Raised panel doors and heavier crown molding at the ceiling define this kitchen as Colonial. However, the cabinets' Oyster Bay finish gives them a driftwood color for a coastal feel. The crown moldings, done in Harbor Mist, further emphasize a coastal, beach house palette. Two different sizes of molding top the cabinets. The larger 4" upper cabinet molding is repeated at the ceiling, with dentil and decorative moulding below it for a weightier effect.

"The grain of the Rosetta Corian countertops plays on the molding, as does the grayish-taupe ceramic tile floor. Brushed pewter knobs and pulls and the bead board backsplash reinforce the Colonial style. Seaside hues create a room fairly neutral in color, with the exception of the stained glass window. Colonial formalism is softened through the use of curved cabinets, making for an inviting, casual atmosphere with formal elements."
