Dining beach-style-dining-room


Designer, Joel Snayd. Beach house on Tybee Island in Savannah, GA. This two-story beach house was designed from the ground up by Rethink Design Studio -- architecture + interior design. The first floor living space is wide open allowing for large family gatherings. Old recycled beams were brought into the space to create interest and create natural divisions between the living, dining and kitchen. The crisp white butt joint paneling was offset using the cool gray slate tile below foot. The stairs and cabinets were painted a soft gray, roughly two shades lighter than the floor, and then topped off with a Carerra honed marble. Apple red stools, quirky art, and fun colored bowls add a bit of whimsy and fun.

Wall Color: SW extra white 7006
Cabinet Color: BM Sterling 1591
Floor: 6x12 Squall Slate (local tile supplier)

Can anyone comment on the durability of slate? I love the look, but don't want anything that is too fragile in an often used half bath. I am replacing lagos azul limestone, which is too porous. Any comments on durability and recommended sealants for slate would be much appreciated.

What is the source for the seafoam sideboard?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Rethink Design Studio
The sideboard is a 1960s vintage piece we had sprayed lacquered a soft blue/green (sea foam) color. The old rusty brass hardware was also given new life by having them powder coated (baked on paint finish) white.

The light fixture above the dining room table is from Circa Lighting. The finish is antique brass and then we painted the "hood and trim pieces" a soft pale blue to give it a more vintage cottage feel.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Sweet Georgia Summer Beach Home
Function and ambiance were the biggest priorities. An open kitchen, dining and living space made the most sense for this vacation home. Although this isn't a full-time residence, the team had to design for large numbers of people, since multiple families stay here at once. Open shelving in the kitchen keeps it casual and bright, while slate tile floors are both durable and stylish. The kitchen cabinets were done in a simple Shaker style and painted to match the marble countertops. The Cooper and white milk glass ceiling fixtures in the kitchen were salvaged from an old saloon. The light above the dining room table is from Circa Lighting; Joel had the trim and hood painted powder blue to give it a vintage look.Table: Hickory Chair; chairs: Crate and Barrel
