Beachy Kitchen Design Board

Some days I wish I was a California girl. I may never be, but I’m not above day-dreaming about living with my family in a sweet little beach bungalow, where most of the walls are those accordion doors that stay open all day, and sunlight fills my cozy eat-in kitchen.

The reality is I do live near the water, there is a private marina at the end of my street! While it’s not exactly the beach, I could still channel that coastal vibe and transform my kitchen into a vintage inspired, relaxed space to cook, eat and celebrate. The centerpiece of this look is the retro looking fridge by Big Chill. I just love how friendly and old-fashioned it is, with it’s curved edges and horizontal handles.

Here are a few of the elements I would want to see every morning in my cheery, and beachy but all-blue kitchen:



  1. Shiny chrome finish knobs to pick up the abundant natural light. Knobs from the Chareau Collection on PullsDirect.
  2. Floor length curtains for softness and pattern.  Aubusson fabric in Aegean by Richloom on
  3. This fridge is the cornerstone for the design. Big Chill Original Size Fridge in Beach Blue. (Of course!)
  4. The light fixture is a reflective focal point, but it doesn’t detract from the laid-back beach cottage vibe. Possini Euro Pendant Lamp from LampsPlus.
  5. The rug is in keeping with the serene color scheme, and provides a subtle pattern. Tia Mark Making rug from Urban Outfitters.
  6. A timeless chair in a modern color. Boothbay Chair in Porch by Maine Cottage.
  7. A gallery wall of beach photography, just in case I don’t make it down to the water each day. This photo is by HazyTone on Etsy.
  8. This round and rustic pine table adds a warmth. Phill Table on Wayfair.
