What Houzz contributors are saying:
Dankner treated the oak floors to a dusky stain (Jacobean from Minwax), then based her palette around that, adding touches of blue to make the decor feel “perfectly beachy,” she says. The island was thoughtfully designed to face the outdoors for a pleasant view while cooking. “I wanted a large island and a large table that could seat 12 for breakfast,” she says. “At a beach house we always have lots of guests sleeping over — that means lots of meals.”Some of her favorite features are the white marble countertops, the matching cabinetry and the pot filler above the range.
