With every design, our authorized Siteline dealers create a masterpiece of color, texture and sheen. In this month’s Siteline blog, we feature the gorgeous “Coastal Bungalow” flat lay designed by authorized dealer, c|s DESIGN STUDIO, of Clifton, Virginia.

The designers, Christina Simon, ASID, CKBD, Brittany Gunst and Emily Ahmad wanted to create an inviting and calming kitchen space for their client. “Our client was drawn to the Evergreen cabinet finish, so we selected a fun patterned floor tile that complimented the green.” notes Simon, president of c|s DESIGN STUDIO.

Mission accomplished!  The c|s team pulled together some soothing neutrals with the countertop and backsplash tile choices, then introduced some subtle texture with a grasscloth wallcovering, and punch of fun in the floor tile.  #tranquiltones #peacefulpalette
