A couple of cottages I designed are going to be featured in an upcoming book, so we filled the vehicles (all three of them) to the brim with things for styling the cottages for the photo shoot. People love to "shop" out of the trunk of my cars. These pillows are for the large porch at Bead Cottage and its tiny living room. I both found and made some fun pillows and borrowed a few wonderful pieces of Bellamy Murphy's amazing art to complete a few room. "Less is more" when it comes to simple spaces and beautiful art ties all the elements together.
Remember the the cottage off-island that I wrote about--the work in progress with the old windows? We are back in business and working on the finishing touches. I'll share with you soon!
This is Bead Cottage--a wonderful, original Tybee cottage . It looks like we just came in from the beach and created ART with two damp towels. The new owners love it and are happy to rent it through TybeeCottages.com. I restored it several years ago and it was featured in Cottage Living in 2005. I really do miss that magazine. They nicknamed this cottage "the white house," which makes me smile every time I hear this--because it's actually painted the Jane Coslick color Beach House Blue! The door is painted the Jane Coslick color Key Lime Parrot. Everything inside was white but we fluffed it for the shoot with punches of color.
