Ideas for faux finishes comes from unusual places.  This color palate was inspired by the client’s favorite beach bag. The goal was to replicate the energetic feeling from frequent vacations to the ocean.
A bright citrus green was placed on the lower cabinets and extended up on to the walls which punctuates the crisp white trim and upper cabinets. This creates a bold contemporary background that frames the true focal point of the kitchen . . . the island. In contrast, the island was treated with various faux finish and distressing techniques to replicate the effects of salty ocean air over time. The cabinet finish is very resilient to the wear and tear of an active family. It invites you to put on some Jimmy Buffet, pour a margarita and be happy!
