I was contacted about the Jane Coslick Cottage Collection Colors
and so I will begin with the color I named.. Favorite Blouse Blue.
I was working on Fish Camp Cottage at the time and needed a color for the exterior. The place was a mess and I had HGTV coming to shoot an episode of Dream Builders. They were going to shoot the site (dumpster and workmen) but it looked awful. What was a girl to do?
It is like when you try TOO hard.. it never works......
..... Like when you "have to have" a dress for a special occasion... you can never find one.
I had to give this pitiful place something great......
I thought it was beautiful but I was definitely in the minority on this one. I tried samples of colors but nothing was feeling just right.
I owned a blue/periwinkle linen blouse that people were always saying, " You look great " every time I wore it. If it could help me , I knew it could help my cottage.
I took the blouse to the paint store and ask them to match the color in exterior semigloss paint. I added the colors of the blooming landscape as accent colors and Fish Camp Cottage came to life.
Fish Camp Cottage was my home for 8 wonderful years. It made the cover of Cottage Living Magazine and shown like a star for the article. It was a magical little spot if ever there was one.
The new owner have changed the interiors but the outside still remains Favorite Blouse Blue.
It is now a rental through Mermaid Cottages for the new owners.http://www.mermaidcottages.com/
