With a coastal kitchen, every day can feel like a vacation! Soothing colors, sea-inspired accents, and hardwood furniture are key to this aesthetic. White countertops and cabinets can brighten up the room to call to mind sunny beach days, while a color palette of pale blues and sea-foam green are reminiscent of ocean waves. Choose subtle, soothing lights to illuminate the space in concert with the soft colors. For furniture, look for wood that is unfinished or has a natural stain.
