Kitchen of the Week: A Compact, Nautical Entertaining Kitchen on Cape Cod

Falmouth Beach Cottage Kitchen

Earlier this week we posted on a Cape Cod beach house reimagined by college roommates Tei Carpenter (an architect) and Victoria Birch (an interior designer), inspired by the Belafonte, Steve Zissou’s boat in The Life Aquatic. The kitchen is full of design ideas to steal; let’s zoom in closer.

The light fixtures are all vintage; a double sconce from Amsterdam and a red barn light from 1st Dibs (for something similar, look to Barn Light Electric).The countertops are oak finished with a marine varnish. On the white electric range sits a Kaiko One-Handle Pan by Japanese designer Makoto Koizumi.

A deck-mounted utility Chicago faucet was stripped down to reveal the brass construction and paired with a ceramic farmhouse sink. (A similar sink is the Shaw’s 30-Inch Original 3018 Fireclay Apron-Front Sink from Rohl. For more, see our post 10 Easy Pieces: White Kitchen Farmhouse Sinks.)

The Breville Quick Touch Microwave ($249.95 at Williams-Sonoma) is concealed in the kitchen island with a retractable door. For more countertop microwaves to stow away, see our post 10 Easy Pieces: Countertop Microwaves. The floors throughout the house are painted in a California Paint high-gloss finish.
