- a good clean
- fresh paint
- strategic styling (play up the good, downplay the bad).
The cottage was no exception. Once we cleared it out and it had been freshly painted, it began to feel like a totally different space. It was bright and clean and fresh!
In the last 'cottage' post, I showed our inspirational pics that we used as a starting point. Once the project really got under way, we were able to lock down more of a game plan.
Behold our mood board...
We also "beefed" up some architectural elements like the mantle. It you remember before, it was a scrawny piece of wood that couldn't even hold a vase let alone the layers of fabulous art/objects I envision for it.
