When I discovered Mary Ann Pickett’s lovely blog Classic Casual Home, I was wowed by the newly remodeled kitchen in her Southern California beach house.
I asked if I could share it with you, and she not only said yes — she wrote the post for me! Take it away, Mary Ann.
A Classic Casual Beach House Kitchen Makeover
As I have enjoyed Julia’s entertaining blog for quite some time, this is an honor.
This is how the kitchen looked when we moved in (above).
We raised the ceiling, removed one window where the stove is, and replaced a peninsula with a large island.
We put in French doors to the patio.
Next to the baker’s rack is a load bearing wall which left an unused space to the right of it.
We made this area into a “beverage center” by adding a small sink, instant hot filtered tap, wine refrigerator and a great little Nespresso cappuccino maker.
This is my favorite part of the kitchen:
Thanks, Julia, for letting me give you a tour of our new kitchen!
