I was recently hired by a customer from Loot to paint a built in cabinet in the master bedroom in her beach house.
During the recent remodel of her beach house, she had a cabinet builder make the built in to fit the space between her two closet doors.
She wanted it to be neutral enough to blend in with the white and grey color palette, while still standing out against the white walls.
I painted the cabinet with Country Grey Chalk Paint. To define the top, above the drawers, I whitewashed the natural wood and sanded to distress it. I also added the same distressed white finish to the trim on the drawer fronts
To tie the cabinet in with the greys in the room and, because Country Grey is not technically grey, I applied a wash of French Linen Chalk Paint.
This woman has exquisite taste and I want to give you a tour of her gorgeous, sophisticated beach home.
Isn't that an amazing headboard?! It is a salvaged architectural piece from an old house.
The luxurious, velvet and linen bedding is by Bella Notte. The blues, greys, and creams of the bedding tie in perfectly with the color scheme of the room and the newly painted, built in cabinet.
She created a relaxed eclectic look by using two different night stands and lamps and adding unexpected pieces like this perfectly shabby chair.
Her sister bought this darling, ratty, old chair at Loot and it looks perfect in its new home.
The living room is neutral and beachy too. The grey washed hardwood floor is not actually wood; it is tile. I could not tell, even in person, until I touched it. No need to worry about scratching this flooring!
One of my favorite things in the whole house is the chippy, old front door.
Look at that charming letter slot on the front.
I sure do love that door!
The elegant kitchen was remodeled with custom cabinetry and stainless appliances.
The guest suite is ocean inspired and so lovely to look at. Besides the pretty interior, the guest bedroom looks out on a beautiful flower farm. What a location! Beach on one side and flowers on the other!
On the other side of the bed is this dear, weathered, vintage night stand with original paint and curvy, little legs.
On to the bath...
I want to know where she got that adorable occupied/vacant sign on the door of the guest bath.
Both bathrooms are outfitted with custom cabinets, complete with louvered doors, and topped with marble.
Just when I think it can't get any lovelier, I step out on their deck and take in the panoramic view of the great Pacific.
This was an inspiring place to paint!
