Kitchen + Dining + Staircase

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
Stair Run Color: BM Sterling 1591
Floor: 6x12 Squall Slate (local tile supplier)

This photo is tagged with the answer, Tolix Marais Barstool from DWR.
DWR doesn't have any in red now. http://www.dwr.com/product/marais-barstool.do?keyword=tolix&sortby=ourPicks#.UXCFb7VJN3o
But they are available elsewhere - some are copies.

I actually just purchased some stools VERY similar to these on overstock. If you are open to finding a different option, check there as well!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jen Jafarzadeh L'Italien added this to A Rainbow of Colorful Kitchen Stools
Red. These Tolix red metal stools instantly catch your attention. Just like the perfect red lipstick, the red stools awaken this mostly white kitchen.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Plunge Into a Refreshing Beach-House Look
This is what I call California casual. White walls with beadboard on the ceiling, an open layout and wicker chairs all beckon for lazy days with flip-flops left at the door.
Laura Gaskill added this to Tile Floors Help a Hot Home Chill Out
Create durability in a beach house. It's easy to clean and will stand up against gritty sand and dirty feet. Sleek rectangular tiles in a cool gray hue work with the whitewashed walls and ceilings in this beach house to create a carefree mood.
Choosing themed art. Artwork is a great way to tell a story in your home, building on the other elements and really bringing your theme to life. Just remember to choose art because you love it, not only because it fits your theme. Usually this means taking your time and allowing your collection to grow organically over time.Tell us: Weigh in on themes in decorating. Do you love them, or do they make you cringe? Any more tips on making a theme work?
Crisp white walls and ceilings make the perfect backdrop for colorful art collections, and a tiled floor feels delightfully cool on hot feet.
Using red and gray at home: Red and gray are quite easy to work with, especially when the gray is a natural material (like slate tiles) and the red is a glossy accent, like the Tolix stools shown here. Think of the red as a fiery flash — the burst of a bonfire on a beach.
