"Made in the Shade" Shutter Headboard



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.

And don't forget to join The Jane Coslick Cottage Collection on Facebook!

Stay tuned!

It is so much more inspiring to see creative ingenuity applied with limited means than er um, the other way round!

What a fresh dose of summer. Lovely, just lovely.

I LOVE design on a "nickel", if this is the result! Those pillows are lovely...and perfect for this bedroom. Where can I find them?

Jane.
It is definately a room that gives you a smile and a hug.
So simple, yet so simply beautiful.
