My Client To The Rescue !!!!!!

My client came to the rescue for  the photo shoot. The knobs I ordered did not arrive in time  so my " Plan B" was to borrow coral knobs from "Tybee  Shutters Cottage" .( for the shoot)
My client was very kind to lend them to me and they worked out great.
 However, she failed to tell the woman who was coming to clean Tybee Shutters about what I was doing . She called my client and said, "why did your house guest walk off with all your kitchen cabinet knobs?
I forgot how wonderful that cottage is so a snapped a few photos to share with you. It gave me so much pleasure to see it in person once again.

......the colors of the cottage from my cottage collection ( beach bucket red was an inspiration from those old shutters)

..........made the head board from the shutters we bought from the new owners of an old wonderful cottage at Tybee...they did know what they had ..thank goodness they offered them...... ............they "remuddled' that amazing cottage..BUT" Tybee Sutters" came to life from their mistake.
when you buy a new house ..GIVE THOUGHT to what is there before you begin throwing everything away.

used red and white  stripe Sunbrella Fabrics for the cushions and porch curtains to work with the original red of the shutters

they collected paint by number vintage art and we did the whole cottage around this collection.....such fun!!!

I hung so much art ( my friend helped me because it "takes two" to get that job done to hold while the other looks...............)

the small turquoise box hanging on the wall is for FAVORITE beach finds....

see..knobless kitchen

 A view into the main screen porch looking to the precious shed out in the garden...

this is a family of treasure hunters and collectors and I love that!!!!!!..Treasures from the ocean in a very cool turquoise bowl

this one matches the fabric on the slip covered chairs.. 

daybed on the porch..... outdoor fabric with all the colors. The fabric designer is Susan Sargent for Robert Allen Fabrics

more knobless kitchen the towel and red tea pot

their collections of shells,sea weed and art are beautiful

.. see the chairs SLIPCOVERED WITH SHEETS ( Sheets sets ON SALE pottery barn ,COM)

love the little red school chair

says it all..................

even the beach towel look great ..................

on Tybee Time..the time I borrowed the knobs... actually " just in time"
close up of the treasure box ..

.............had this made for the son's room along with others we collected..............

.............this is where the treasures get cleaned before they come inside

got to have a clothes line to hang up the beach towels ........... the old shutter hardware.................

nothing like an outdoor shower  ..with HOT and COLD water.WOO HOO!!!!

This is a great cottage! So inspiring. Looks like a happy place. Love the drop leaf table in the living room. Susan Sargant's fabric is so beautiful. I really like her colors. Great job!

The vintage paint by number art came from shops, ebay and their own pieces. I did not know they had titles. Will pass that on.Thanks,Tricia Rose.

Hi Jane
aaah. that has my name written all over it. I can see myself in that fabulous big chair. and the variety of artwork is wonderful. It must have taken many years of collecting to get all that great stuff!! Jane x

Tybee Shutters has always been one of my favorite Jane Coslick cottages. It's as adorable on the outside as it is on the inside.
