Part 2. A Total Kitchen Remodel- The “Beachy” Inspiration!
I divided my “A Total Kitchen Remodel” post into two parts because I absolutely love this kitchen, and in all honesty, wanted to showcase my work first because this kitchen (in my opinion)
is so pretty. I certainly did not want it to overshadow my
work!! The pictures below of this spectacular space showcase the muse that inspired the design of my mother’s kitchen total remodel! I just love the beachy, peaceful feel radiating from this space. The magazine described the color palate as “sea-salt color swirls”. My mother always clamored to scrape her 1980’s dated, claustrophobic space and create a modern, adventurous kitchen the envy of the entire neighborhood. One day in 2008, while flipping through the pages of various interior design magazines at her local grocery store, she discovered the inspiration she had been seeking for so long! It was this kitchen in the February 2008 issue of Kitchen and Bath Ideas Magazine that got her wheels spinning and pushed her to undertake the redesign. This amazing kitchen was in a show-house called Beachhurst Mansion, a mid 19th-centuryseaside cottage located on the North Shore of Massachusetts (about 18 miles north of Boston). This beauty was designed by interior designer Steve Watson of Steve Watson Interior Design www.swidesign.com
and Sheila Whalen of Timeless Interiors www.timelessinteriorsonline.com

In my research for this post, I had the privilege of speaking with Steve Watson, one of the wonderful designers on this project. I am so appreciative that he took the time in sending the pictures of this beautiful kitchen that he and Sheila Whalen designed.
