Kitchen + Dining + StaircaseBeach Style Kitchen, Atlanta

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)

    But is the flooring on the stairs the same tile or a different material?

  • Nellie S

    It's wood, painted the same color as the cabinets.

    The floor is Brazilian green (jade green) slate which is very dense
    and does not flake. Brazilian Jade Green Slate in different sizes can
    be purchased from

    You can always call Shop SCAD to ask about the Artist (912) 525-5180. That is where we found it. Sorry we do not have any more info about the Artist etc.

        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.

        Laura Gaskill added this to Outfit a Beach House From Deck to Drawer KnobsMay 18, 2013

        Crisp white walls and ceilings make the perfect backdrop for colorful art collections, and a tiled floor feels delightfully cool on hot feet.

        Laura Gaskill added this to 4 Classic Decorating Themes — and How to Work Them Just RightFeb 24, 2013

        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?

        Laura Gaskill added this to Tile Floors Help a Hot Home Chill OutJul 9, 2012

        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.

        Charmean Neithart Interiors added this to Plunge Into a Refreshing Beach-House LookApr 16, 2012

        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.

        Jen L'Italien added this to A Rainbow of Colorful Kitchen StoolsJan 8, 2012

        Red. These Tolix red metal stools instantly catch your attention. Just like the perfect red lipstick, the red stools awaken this mostly white kitchen.
