This Boston harbor view and its sailor owners inspired Aimee Zaslaw’s open, light kitchen design. “The beauty of the space is in the view, which was obstructed by the enclosed kitchen,” she explained.
An open concept allowed the kitchen to flow into the dining area. White lacquer cabinetry brightens the space and contrasts with the dark wood floors and cherry veneer slab-front cabinets.
Under and above-cabinet lighting on the wall, floor lighting under the island and recessed lighting above are used for task lighting in the kitchen or mood lighting in the living area.
These cabinets softened the look of the glass tile backsplash, which brings back the reference to the sea.
For the master bath, the oceanic theme is continued with iridescent turquoise blue tiles. Cherry cabinetry and a cherry accent wall add warmth to the space.
