Hall/Kitchen/Stairs beach-style-hall


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)

Hello! The beams themselves are an unfinished Oak wood, found outside at a local lumbar yard and fairly worn. They are "finished" with a flat stock trim.

The shelves were fabricated by our cabinet builder. The shelves and brackets are solid maple painted.

It could be Shiplap siding. Looks like 4-6 inch widths to me.

The "beach" sign you see is made of letter mugs that were hung on top of one another.

Yes they are - the squall tile is shared between the kitchen, dining, living, and hallway spaces.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rustic, widely spaced beams combine with tongue and groove to create the ultimate beach-house ceiling.
Katya Popova added this to Sporty Rooms Hit a Home Run
Tennis is another favorite sport of mine, so I was thrilled to see this neat racquet display. You can apply the same methodology to make it easy to just grab a racquet on your way out the door.
