This is one of many southern, tropical projects I have finished. I took existing furniture and refurnished it for an up-to-date look. I also had new furniture built for the cottage while still maintaining a vintage cottage look.
This was a three year long project – a one hundred year old cottage on the Gulf of Mexico! It was a gem that needed love and attention. I kept it mainly in its original state accept for redoing the kitchen and the bathrooms. I changed the colors because everything was mint green, both outside and in! There was originally beach sand where the pool is now, which made it the perfect place for a puddle pool. All the cottages surrounding the main cottage are original.
What a place! Come enjoy some of the inside…
Striped floors add fun to this screened-in porch, overlooking the pool. Sweet mermaid light with colorful furniture.
To give it an airy feel, I designed open shelving and added a butcher block island. What a kitchen!
Sleeping porch with whimsical art we made on the wall so it would be different and fun. Sleep while the waves hit the beach like a lu-lla-by.
Master bedroom has a headboard made out of an old theater frame cut in two. Added filling to the middle and covered in a striped fabric and voila! It’s a funky headboard. No one else will have this!
A place to sit, have an iced tea and relax. I used vintage wicker furniture and added new outdoor fabric. We also made some of the pieces.
Simple guest bedroom by the beach. This room is facing the ocean – oh, listen to that surf!
Vintage wicker on the porch overlooking the sea – the beautiful sea.
