design inspiration: tybee island renovation

From the pages of Coastal Living (March '09)... a few interior shots of a renovated hundred-year-old house. The beach house was given new life when the owners opened up the spaces, painted the walls a powdery white and brought in pops of bright colors. All the while, the goal was to keep the identity of the house as when it was first built. It's left me wanting to see more! (And oh, how I long for a trip to the beach!)

(A Light and Bright Kitchen with an adorable turquoise blue screen door to the pantry.)

(See walls of unpainted boards saved from the original house in a perfect example of Old Made New in a Dressing Area.)

(A Perfectly Positioned master suite in what used to be a wrap-around porch.)

For the rest of the photo portfolio (and to see before pics -- always a favorite of mine! -- click here.

I've seen that kitchen a couple of times and I absolutely love what they did, especially that pop of turquoise. I wonder what the exact color of it is??
