Tongue & Groove
This home was built on a stretch of North Carolina Low Country fronting the Intracoastal Waterway and within view of the Atlantic Ocean. To capture the mood of seaside sunbeams, full-moon risings, and maritime stargazing, the home’s Brazilian calcite countertops feature LED underlighting, adding iridescent depth to the stovetop backsplash and kitchen island.
The island’s corbel corners also capture the complexity of colors and textures of the materials used in this space
Dramatically underlit blue agate in the gathering room, and in the powder room’s floating vanity shown below further echoes the coastal environment and creates subliminal underwater illusions.
