Contemporary Cottage Refresh

This beautiful circa 1920 cottage has even more curb appeal with a new custom stain glass and wood framed door. The stain glass color and design was chosen to beautifully tie into the lavish colorful garden, and leafy green views out the bright windows.

The door looks beautiful on both the outside and the inside. It has become an interior focal point as we have turned what was a simple stone entry with cement floors, into a multi-use, year round space. One side is utilized as a home office, complete with stationary bike for exercise in-between conference calls, and the other side is a small reading nook. Directly across from the entry we customized a built-in area for coats, shoes and hanging backpacks, that is organized and welcoming when walking into the home.

We changed the entry into the main house to include two sets of French Doors that lead into an Asian inspired Living Room. Simplicity and calm were the style direction. The fireplace received a long overdue makeover, brightening up dark tired brick with a clean white wash. The hearth was updated with a beautiful stone slab, replacing broken 4×4 terra cotta tiles.

The new wall paint accentuated the architectural detail original to the house over the fireplace, with a graduating pattern leading up to the ceiling. New crown molding, window blinds, and built ins with seating and storage flanking the fireplace, completed the new look!

The common element throughout is good design. There’s always a reason why an element is chosen for a certain place, whether it’s a colorful painting in a room or a specific fabric on a chair. There’s also a functionality to every item that is unique to each project’s solution. It’s sort of like an oversized jigsaw puzzle with a place and reason for each piece.

“Your rooms are like a painting. Each component is a brushstroke to create the whole picture. It’s magic every time!”
