Tour a Light-filled Home With a Soothing Coastal Palette
Late-1990s finishes weren’t cutting it for these London homeowners and their two children. Wanting a more modern look with colours inspired by the waters around Israel, where one of the owners grew up, they searched Houzz and found designer Samantha Watkins McRae.
Samantha used Houzz Pro software to coordinate the project with the homeowners. She updated the kitchen with a soothing coastal palette that includes a dark blue island and crisp white refaced perimeter cabinets. Numerous glass walls let light flood into the open-plan living space, which Samantha made more cosy by using warm finishes and furniture that create the feeling of intimate zones.
