White Painted Wood Walls

White paint and exposed beams refresh a kitchen.

White painted wood walls and kitchen cabinets freshen up this east-coast cottage kitchen and dining area. Hardware in black wrought-iron balances the counter stools and dining chairs and makes the room feel more modern. Wood floors in wide planks made from local hemlock and exposed rustic beams on the ceiling continue the coastal cottage look.
