This was the pink door and room. I love, love, love old doors and old hardware! This family loves red and blue, so once it's furnished, no one will realize that the walls are painted all white since the art and furnishings bring the color. Floors will be installed next week.

On February 11th, I wrote about saving a cottage and its beautiful old windows. Here is a peek of the interior (looking toward the kitchen) as things are progressing. Lots of white paint to enlarge the space, but I left a bit of the old wood for everyone to see.

My online store is now live!
No one believed it could happen, especially me! I just bought my own autographed book, and the payment went through! Amazing! We are still adding things and loading images but just wanted to see it in operation. I am so thankful to Beth Thrasher of Thrasher Photo and Design for building the store and working with me and to Winn Coslick (my son), and Anna Speir and Ashley Koncul for all the hours of organizing, pondering and planning this endeavor.
Please visit the Jane Coslick Cottage Collection-- there you can purchase just about all of the wonderful items you see in the homes I've designed.
Let me know what you think! And happy shopping!

When life gets too hectic I go to my inspiration room, located behind the Bohemian Cottage in the garden. My busy schedule keeps me on the move, but when I finally slow down for the day I find myself either here or in the gazebo. What began as "World Headquarters" for the online store is now the great "Happiness Habitat."
Napping and pondering here is strongly encouraged!

After working on "Sulley's Room," I realized that my life is full of Black and White--but always with a hint of color. Here are the doors of my office on the Isle of Hope (27 minutes from Tybee Island). It was originally built as the island's Post Office before becoming the General Store, and is now part of Isle of Hope's wonderful history! Don't you just love the name--The Isle of Hope!
