How interesting is this beach house? The color of the cabinetry (high gloss silver) and the stainless appliances creates an almost seamless appearance. The kitchen would almost appear industrial if it weren't for the softer touches of the pendants, the stools at the bar, and the countertops. With light coming in from the celing and both sides of the kitchen, the kitchen fights the gloom that is (often) a reality in Ventura county beach homes.
The prominent and most interesting feature of this home, however, is the art. The homeowners are avid art collectors with a concentration in work from 1980s LA artists. The monochromatic palette of the kitchen is a blank canvas for the art. Which included, I believe, some work by Sister Corita Kent:
Corita Kent, also known as Sister Mary Corita, gained international fame for her vibrant serigraphs during the 1960s and 1970s. A Sister of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, she ran the Art Department at Immaculate Heart College until 1968 when she left the Order and moved to Boston. Corita's art reflects her spirituality, her commitment to social justice, her hope for peace, and her delight in the world that takes place all around us."
