New Year ..New Cottage..Introducing BLUES AWAY




I had the pleasure of working with some new and very interesting clients to create a cottage that will…actually take your blues away. The colors are happy but soothing. They have shared wonderful books and music and art from their own collections. Every time I walk into the cottage , I feel relaxed, invigorated and happy. I think it is the unique mix of all the elements in the spaces.
a pleasure  to behold ...new life to a tired 1950's cottage. I love my job!

it was one of the stars of the Jane Coslick Cottage  Holiday Tour held the first of December


the porch has a new tile floor and great new outdoor fabrics

the natural light in the living room is so fresh and inviting  I love the colors ...the mix of patterns on the throw pillows with the indoor /outdoor stripe rug and PS(I love their Christmas tree!!!!)
this little sign speaks  volumes ..to me. In my work, art is everything!!!

wonderful, fun and newly renovated  dining room …

bright and cheery new kitchen

some of my favorite pieces of art and a new and very comfortable  slip covered dining chair….a great mix 

OK .. the surprise  that makes you smile …. queen bed room with paper mache zebra heads WEARING pearls!!!!
TO ME THIS ENTIRE COTTAGE IS ART !


the wonderful master bedroom  soooooo comfy and relaxing

the colors…I love them!

the twin bedroom with  new floor ,ceiling, color and bed linens

Great pieces of folk art…. (sorry about the cords)



new cottage sign by our favorite person Leonard Miller 
fabulous outdoor shower 

 BLUES AWAY is the perfect place for a siesta or a fiesta…
It is a Mermaid Cottages  vacation rental when the clients are away.www.mermaidcottages.com
I love the beautiful cedar tree..and there is nothing like sitting in the shade of a giant old tree watching the world go by…My personal opinion..SHADE is very under-rated...

I'm in love! Blues Aways is too adorable. Jane Coslick did a fabulous job. The folk art is wonderful.

Being immersed in so many, beautiful colors, how could you fail to lose the blues? This is just wonderful. I'll bet the owners are as unique and creative as their home. Congratulations to everyone involved.

The owners are very talented themselves and we had fun creating this interesting and very comfortable cottage.

I toured this home during the Tour of Homes in early December and also met the owners. Lovely cottage! All your designs were great in all the homes on tour! My hobby is painting furniture and love to one day leave the corporate world and pursue my hobby! Love your style! Carol

Denise said...

I love your work. Your website is marked in my favorites. I always look forward to you posting something new. Would you tell me the colors that you used in the master bedroom? I would like to replicate those colors somewhere in my home.
Thank you!
