From the Archives...Beach house kitchens

It's summer, and many of us have the beach on our minds. If you were building/planning a beach house, what would the kitchen look like? Colorful or white, sleek or cottagey? Here are some images that I collected of beach house kitchens. Many of the images below are white kitchens with a shot of color (either floor, back splash or accessories)- a fun way to liven up any kitchen.

The blue pantry door (a former screen door) makes the kitchen - all of the fun elements flow from that door.

Blue just seems so appropriate at the beach...

The green painted floor is pretty and fun. And how about the retro pink appliances in the image below this one?






I used to have green cabinets like this in a former kitchen - it was very soothing.

This last kitchen is eye popping red - looks great with the blue from the ocean!

So, what kind of kitchen would you design for your own beach house?
