Designed by QualCraft Construction Inc. and with interiors by Dominique Tharp, this retro beach kitchen isn’t shy on style and colors!
This beautiful kitchen with a turquoise island and colorful decor just went through a complete renovation where the designers and the homeowners chose to keep the 1940s beach bungalow’s charm. Beadboard, retro-style appliances, a Hoosier-style cabinet, schoolhouse pendants, seeded glass and crystal drawer knobs are just a few of the details that keep the home’s original spirit alive in this Coronado, California vacation home.
