Tour a Light-Filled London 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 colors inspired by the water near Israel, where one of the owners grew up, they searched Houzz and found designer Samantha Watkins McRae.
McRae 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 base and bright white refaced cabinets on the perimeter. Numerous glass walls let light flood into the open-plan living space, which McRae made more cozy by using warm finishes and furniture that create the feeling of intimate zones.
