all things Bright and Beautiful

21 Oct

Paula lives here along the coast of Maine where she has worked with us for two years to assemble this bright, beautiful living area – piece by piece and fabric by fabric. She’s very proud and excited about the outcome. And so are we! Here’s a great picture from her.

Maine Cottage look

What an invitingly warm and colorful living space! We love her choice of a Maine Cottage Adeline Sofa, Simon Chair and Ruben Hassock in Rambler and Just Dandy print fabrics with painted Fiddlehead End and wicker Cooper tables. A Tulip Lamp by Jill Rosenwald in a simple, proportionate form with coordinating colors adds interest. The repetition of soft greens, yellows with some red pull the whole area together with ease. Congratulations, Paula! Thanks for sharing.

multi-generational island retreat: Fripp Island, SC

11 Oct

Set against a landscape of pristine waterways and forests, Fripp Island is South Carolina’s most seaward barrier island and vacation home to three generations of family – with a main house (above) and a 3500 square foot guest house and pool where extended family can spillover into a comfortably relaxed and FUN setting. The owner worked closely with our Charleston store crew, including Sara Meyer, to plan and fill many rooms in this family compound.

“Just to repeat, Sara, what I told you about the pleasure of working with you and Maine Cottage on our beach house. I recall the day we sat down at the planning table around 10:00 in the morning and by 5:00 p.m. that same day we had planned the whole entire guest house. It was a joy working with you and I was amazed at how easy the process was.”

“Maine Cottage samples and furniture made it so easy to choose what I wanted. The colors are so well coordinated and the furniture is on a scale that fits in most any size room. So, we didn’t have to second guest our choices. I love the finished look and am very pleased with everything. The furniture, colors and fabric are always cheery and pleasing and not one that you would get tired of looking at. Thanks for all of your help and your friendship in this process. Thank you, too, for the quick follow-up with any questions I had after the job was finished.”
All the best, Judy R.
