Working On A Cottage

Last spring I had the pleasure of accessorising this cottage.

The owner had chosen this blue for the outside accents on the home. I snagged her color and painted the anchor and oars for outside her front door and planted pink Geraniums and orange Impatiens with flags for accent. Added the sailor knot mat in front of the door.

Nantucket beach look was what I was aiming for.

Then she had me accessorize the guest room working around these two red chairs with gold running through them.

Using a round mirror and blue and white plates I mimicked the Oriel window in the hall.

It was tough working with the red chairs because the yellow walls made them look brick orange. So I went to the old stand by, blue, white and yellow. Love the blue and white lamps with the blue and white quilt and pretty hand made pillows.
