Casual Luxe Beach House

Taking this home out of the 1950's meant removing almost every surface in the house...except for the original wood paneling. We painted the wood a soft hue of blue that is great contrast to the new coffee stained bamboo floors.

Did you caulk the gaps in the paneling before painting?

We first used TSP on the original paneling, then used caulk to fill the gaps before priming and then painting.

We love these pieces. One thing I recommend is applying a wax finish as they are a natural metal that can get corrosion and pitting.

Love this... I will be painting my den with the original wood paneling next weekend. the den opens up to my kitchen with the original pecan wood cabinets from the 50's. Any suggestions for what color the kitchen cabinets should be?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Hullinger chose a soft white trim throughout, knowing it would work perfectly with Seaview's often-cloudy and muted light. "I also kept the furniture backs low in this room, so you can sit anywhere in the space and enjoy the expansive views outside the windows," he says. Trim color: Benjamin Moore's Winter WheatCoffee Table: Oly StudiosSide Table: WisteriaTripod Lamp: AM Living Surveyors LampArt: Robin Denevan

(Ignore mod style & green walls) For Family Room: Use SAME color scheme as front rooms EXCEPT with your brown upholstered furniture it will have a sightly different look to it. This "variation on a theme" is a perfect way to have interesting but coordinated rooms on your main floor.
