Who is The House That Social Media Built?
Once again, we had the pleasure of working with Nicole and Mike, the brilliant team behind The House That Social Media Built (THTSMB). With their knowledge of the home remodeling industry, they transform outdated and dilapidated homes. Their social media followers vote to choose different parts of their remodeling projects, which is how THTSMB got their name. In this latest project, they transformed a rundown house into a beautiful getaway with nautical charm.
Voting on Cabinet Colors
On a previous project THTSMB worked on with CliqStudios’, their followers voted on the layout and style the kitchen. For this project, their audience voted on the color of the kitchen island. The choices were Red, Light Gray, and Blue. The winning color was the CliqStudios finish Blue, a perfect choice for matching with the nautical design of the space and the surrounding White cabinets in the style Shaker.
A Beautiful Island
For this eye-catching navy island, Nicole and Mike wanted to add personality and storage. They worked with their CliqStudios kitchen designer, Vanessa Hernandez to make this happen. “They wanted more detail on the island, so we did open shelves and a drawer for storage,” said Vanessa. The open shelves are the perfect spot for decorative items or cookbooks.
Another useful storage solution added to the kitchen was pull-out trash and recycling bins next to the sink for easy clean-up. Tray dividers were also added for easy organization of longer, awkward items like baking sheets and cutting boards.
Where can I get some?
The use of white cabinets helps balance the space and allows the blue island to shine. White and blue blend together for a traditional design with a modern twist.
“I like the white and blue together,” said Vanessa. “They added a huge window over the sink to bring in the outside view and natural lighting. The natural lighting makes the blue pop,” said Vanessa.
Shaker cabinets add a clean style that easily fits into both traditional and contemporary spaces alike. In this case, the Shaker compliments the nautical themes throughout the kitchen.
A Coastal Style
The kitchen has a nautical, coastal charm. Coastal designs embrace ocean hues whites. The style also uses natural light and natural fabrics to bring elements of the outside into the home.
In this home, the uses of blue and white cabinetry and accessories fits the coastal theme. Because of the neutrality of the colors, the kitchen is easily adapted to fit other looks. “You can dress the house differently because of the flexibility of the colors,” said Vanessa.
