Posted by Steven Schrenk

 

For a kitchen and master bath reno at a home perched on the water’s edge in St. Petersburg, Florida, designer Brooke Eversoll looked to the sparkling views outside for inspiration.

Like a wave sweeping a beach clean and leaving bits of shell and sea glass behind, Eversoll replaced the dark and dated cabinets and countertops with cool water blues and soft sand neutrals that reflect a coastal vibe with a layout more conducive to its homeowners.
