Free-Flowing Kitchen

Designer Lisa Sherry's floor plan opened up walls that formerly separated the kitchen and dining spaces.

Open and Airy

Lisa worked with the contractor to build open shelves that helped create the light, bright, free-flow design for the kitchen and dining areas.

Coastal Dining

A capiz-shell chandelier is the star of the remodeled dining area. Lisa layered textures into the space that feel both coastal and chic.

A Kitchen for Entertaining

This vacation home's kitchen includes many details to make it easy to entertain — the homeowners can plan a menu on the chalkboard, access pantry staples from open shelves and make cleanup easy with a deep double sink.

Between the Columns

Lisa took down dividing walls between the kitchen and dining areas to create an open floor plan. The travertine tile works with the coastal design of the home.

Kitchen Chalkboard

Since the hub of the home is in the kitchen, a chalkboard kitchen makes a great family messaging center.
