Cowabungalow Kitchen, Dining and Living Almost Complete

As you can see, the kitchen is not quite complete. The butcher block kitchen counter, tile back splash and wooden cabinet knobs to match the counters are all missing. Again, we went with bright beachy colors here.

The cabinets are still missing the seeded glass as well.
We really had a lot of fun setting the dining table with a combination of items from Pottery Barn, World Market, Hobby Lobby and Marshalls.
Since the house will be used for short term rentals as well, we used wax flameless candles from Hobby Lobby. We found some sea glass locally with all of our colors. Aren't these lanterns a great color from Marshalls?
This is a view from the living room. The color scheme on this floor all started with the pillow on the right from Dash and Albert. Then we threw in some bright blue and orange too.
The large shell mirror was a find at the Pottery Barn Outlet.
This living area is actually on the third floor to maximize the views from the balcony. There is an elevator in the house to help when you have to lug up groceries. Too bad it was not in yet when we were moving. I climbed many stairs this last weekend, no need for the gym. There's Stanley on the phone in the background working to make money for this place! Oh, and did you notice that fabulous chandelier....

Cool, huh? This is a place were you need to splurge for a one of a kind item. This fixture needed to be grand in this size room.
Also on this floor is a small powder room with turquoise washed pine walls. The tile back splash isn't up yet but will be this great glass mosaic tile from Dal Tile.
This is what it's all about. What could be more inspiring than that? As pretty as the house is inside, nothing can compare to that view. I can't wait to go back to see everything finished and when I do, I'll be sure to share the finished product with you.
