A coastal kitchen in Sag Harbor with a farmhouse table and shaker cabinets.

The kitchen in Steven Gambrel’s Sag Harbor project, introduced to me by Gabrielle, caught my eye the most in the whole project. I love the idea of a dining table in the kitchen – for use as a kitchen island and pre-dinner conversation hub, that can quickly become the dining table. It brings everyone together in the kitchen, which I truly believe is the heart of the home. Steven strays from the ubiquitous white kitchen with a serene shade of cool grey, but balances the blue tones with a warm farmhouse table. The wishbone chairs and whimsical prints add a fun sense of modernity, while shaker cabinetry and multi-paned windows keep the traditional beach cottage feeling alive. It’s quite the quaint kitchen, with a fresh sense of fun that invites everyone in to get cooking!

I love those vintage French cutting boards, which contrast with the fun mix of abstract black and white art. And you may have seen those dining chairs in one of my recent projects – they’re one of my favorite renditions of the wishbone chair!

  1. My house has a kitchen island, and the room next to it is the living room. I love it when my friends and I are having a baking party, we’ve put everything in the oven, and we just sit back and chat while we wait with the delicious aromas waft through the air. It feels just like we’re at a cafe! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
