Sorry for not keeping up with the blog, but my "day job" (as a designer) keeps me very busy these days as this is the busy time of season. I create "vacation fun" for clients who want a Jane Coslick Cottage.
This little two-bedroom cottage, located right on the marsh on Tybee Island, was given to me to finish 3/4 of the way through the renovation. Everything was beige!!!! I love beige, don't get me wrong, but subtle beauty wasn't going to create the "happiness factor" for this little spot. With the beige, I inherited purple sheets (Ralph Lauren) and a rust-colored sofa. We are "designing on a nickle" for those of you who watch Design on a Dime!
What I do in a case like this? RUN WITH IT!
With the help of some Jane Coslick Cottage Shutters turned into a headboard, a few thing from my secret stash, and a few "hand me ups" from the client, I surprised even myself with how it all turned out. It definitely has "the smile factor" and can be rented through http://www.mermaidcottages.com/ .
When I learn to load more that one photo, I'll show the other bedroom complete with purple RL sheets.
