You already know we love Pure Salt Interiors‘ fresh, seaside style, but if you haven’t yet laid eyes on their work, you’re in for a treat! They designed this rustic coastal home with not only their beautiful aesthetic, but also their clients’ priorities. Lots of plants, seating, and a livable space for the young family. Check, check, check. We think you’ll love the kitchen, dining, and living room as much as we do!
Aly & Leigh share how this space came together here:
This space was really fun to design for us, because it was pretty much a blank slate! The only piece that we had to work around was a really roughed up, cool leather couch. Our main inspiration came from the vintage peach Oushak rug that we used as the centerpiece for the room. The client fell in love with it the moment she laid eyes on it! So, from there, we started to build out the space to create a comfortable and cozy heart of the home. Our vibe that we were going for here was coastal + botanical farmhouse…does that exist?! Clean and edgy undertones accented by vintage finds that lend loads of character.
For the family room set-up, the space really called for a love seat, but we also really wanted to break up that side of the room with a couple of oversized custom chairs to offset the cool leather couch. We had the chairs made to where they feel like a couch in the space, but are two separate seats. They are perfect for kids who will lounge in them, or when the parents want to entertain and need them to function as two separate seats.
We anchored the space down with a concrete coffee table on top of the vintage rug. We chose concrete for a couple of reasons, but mainly to play off of the other two countertop materials that were in plain sight from the family room area. These are the kitchen table and the island. We really wanted the coffee table to contrast and flow at the same time and the concrete totally achieved that! Also, it’s basically indestructible, which was a necessity for this client and her young family!
For the kitchen table, the centerpiece of this room, we wanted a really warm and functional piece. So we went with a large farm table in a cool wood tone to keep the palette super fresh. Because the dining seating backs right up to the bar stools, we chose benches for maximum functionality and use of space. The barstools, add a nice sharp edge that we are really digging right now, while keeping it white and simple and a tad bit Scandinavian.
The kitchen…who doesn’t love a classic white kitchen?! Bright and white all the way with this one. However, to keep it from being too stark we added some classic texture with the honed marble subway backsplash. The main countertops are a bright white quartzite, which is the perfect backdrop for all of the natural accents and fresh produce.
What really brought this whole space to life was all of the plant life. The client is a horticulture guru and loves live trees, plants, and orchids in the home. So we filled in every corner with large airy trees. The main tree we used was the ever popular Fiddle Leaf Fig, and our favorite, the Ficus Triangularis, which adds such an airy touch to the space. Lastly, we used airplants as a super simple centerpiece and peppered in pops of colorful orchids.
