Kitchen Remodel Gets Splash of Nautical Color & Style
Salt water runs through Anne Nelson’s veins. Having grown up on the Gulf Coast of Florida and now living on the South Shore of Massachusetts, she uses her love of all things coastal to inspire her interior design work. Her firm, Anne Nelson Interior Design, assists clients with everything from window treatments to full interior design plans for new construction.
A recent project took Anne to the quaint little village of Cohasset just south of Boston for an extensive kitchen remodel.
“This house is a classic coastal ranch with an open floor plan,” Anne says. “The house is bright and fresh and all of the open areas are very simple with a touch of color in the smaller spaces.” Anne and her client wanted to keep the clean, fresh look and chose white as the main color in the design with touches of natural driftwood finishes in the furniture and open shelves.
In addition to new countertops, plumbing, appliances, shiplap, furniture, and hardware, Anne converted an old desk area into a wet bar. She added a touch of color to this space with two Dominion Gooseneck Lights from Barn Light Electric. She customized these handcrafted wall lights with 12″ shades, a Navy finish, and G26 gooseneck arms.
“The navy barn lights were our touch of color and custom design,” Anne explains. “They look amazing over the wet bar on the bright white shiplap, and they add that extra directional lighting that the space needed. The navy finish also looks great with the new antique brass cabinet hardware.”
Anne has specified Barn Light Electric products on numerous projects and appreciates the ability to customize fixtures. The District Gooseneck Light offers the perfect shape and style needed for the space and the Navy finish adds the nautical splash of color they envisioned.
“I love that Barn Light has so many options. They offer amazing quality and the custom look that my client wanted,” Anne says. “We took a dated kitchen and, with a few details such as this wet bar area, it was transformed to an updated, beautiful space that my clients will enjoy for years to come. They kept saying, ‘What took us so long to do this?!'”
