Oceanside is a coastal city located on California's South Coast. Although it's the third largest city within San Diego County, it is one of the most relaxed areas of the state, where people go to enjoy panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, which are offered from almost every part of the city.
In order to carry this theme into their remodeled kitchen, a couple that owns a beachside cottage in the city decided to employ a colorful collection of mosaic tile from Lunada Bay Tile. "The clients did not want to remodel the entire kitchen. They wanted to make an aesthetic impact without tearing everything out," explained Charmean Neithart, senior designer of Charmean Neithart Interiors in South Pasadena, CA, who led the design process. "We saved a significant amount of money by keeping the existing cabinets and only installing a new counter, backsplash, sink, faucet and appliances; and painting the cabinets."
