A New Challenge For me: Creating the Cottage Look

Saturday, January 26, 2013

A new client recently hired me to make her house look "cottagey."  I was the first to tell her that it's a style that I'm not overly experienced in - just a bedroom here and there.  I like the style in the right house, but most people hire me to do more modern or transitional rooms.  But, she hired me anyway!  So although it's going to be a bit of a challenge, I'm excited to start. I threw together these inspiration photos and she loves them, so we're off to a good start :)

Two events I'm loving - first check out these chairs and ottomans from $204! This sale was made for me :)

And then these vintage originals, only $239 for a set of 3. I'm thinking instant gallery wall!

I hear you Stacy...We were just hired to do an entire house with a cottage "feel", as well. First time for us too. We are having so much fun. The playfulness of this style are refreshing. Thanks for your inspiration!
