The Shrimp Cottage got some TLC......................

the screen porch fluffed and ready for a visit from Erin
Erin from House of Turquoise www.houseofturquoise.com/came to visit Tybee and stayed at The Shrimp Cottage. She loved it and we had fun taking a cottage tour.  It was her birthday and I was thrilled she could spend some of it on Tybee Island.
the cottage was the garage for the Key Lime Parrot ( which is next door)

it is the smaller of the two cottages(Key Lime Parrot and The Shrimp)
small in size but big on charm

the cottage is all about fun
a mix of color and happy spaces. I added 14 windows to bring in the light because everything was dark ,brown and a bit scary.

added beaded plywood to the wall and painted everything bright white
THEN came the color in the furniture and fabrics and accessories

the out door shower  before we added a door..

added some Jane Coslick Cottage Collectionwww.janecoslickcottagecollection.com turquoise stripe euros

and a throw pillow with all the colors in the space

more color

the twin bedroom with two Star of the Sea Shutters for another punch of turquoise

You done did it again! Love the shrimp color. Never would I have thought of adding that with the blue and green. Just adorable. Lucky Erin to get to visit. What a happy place.
