Steal This Look: A Beach Cottage Kitchen, Starring Ikea

July 30, 2019

“I had never worked with a blue palette before,” says Glenn Ban, a designer better known for neutrals and organic pieces. But, inspired by the blues and whites in Tiina Laakkonen’s shop in Amagansett, New York, he decided to branch out and try ocean hues for his cottage in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

Sourcing from P-Town shops, antique dealers, and Ikea, Ban created the perfect blue, white, and breezy kitchen.

Photography by Stephen Kent Johnson, from A Beach Cottage in Provincetown, Styled for Budget-Minded Summer Living.

The Ikea kitchen features wood Karlby countertops and a Grundtal stainless steel rack, now discontinued. (Scroll down for an alternative.)

Ban stashes the Ikea table, along with a few other pieces, over the winter in a storage locker. The Danish midcentury chairs came from Beall & Bell on the North Fork.

The vintage midcentury Danish and German pottery vases are from Ruby Beets. The James Keating work on the left was a gift, and the abstract work on the right is by Jen Bradley from the Schoolhouse Gallery in Provincetown.
