True Blue

First Place: Specialty Room

True Blue

Located just off the kitchen in a waterfront home near Annapolis, this bold bar space was designed to make entertaining easy and enjoyable. And, says architect Scarlett Breeding, “we also wanted to celebrate the character of the property with nautical and maritime-inspired details.”

She and project designer Richard Anuszkiewicz collaborated on the space, seamlessly concealing an under-counter ice maker, refrigerator, and wine cooler behind the royal blue cabinet doors to create a ship-shape look. They selected a hand-hammered copper sink and knurled Waterworks hardware for rustic appeal. Graphic wallpaper on the ceiling accentuates the height of the room and adds a whimsical—and affordable—
design note.

The casework resembles fine furniture rather than stock cabinetry, while the teak countertop provides water resistance, durability and a nod to finely crafted yachts sailing by the home.
