Happy, Sunshiny Room!

It has been interesting to furnish and fluff the rooms at the Coral Cottage.  Many times the things I had planned for a room just didn't seem quite right and we rearranged until everything was to our liking.  There were a million details--little things like locating the right size lamp harp so the lamp shade would look right--and they all took time.

Here's where I left you hanging last post


The blue-striped side table was moved to the twin bedroom to use as a nightstand.  The coral lamp was added and the wicker lamp was moved to the other side of the sofa (still no shade) and some of the curtains were hung.


Jane Coslick and I kept tweaking--we swapped the tables on the ends of the sofa, got a lamp shade for the wicker lamp, and got the drapes hung.


A couple weeks later on my next trip to Tybee I brought some fun ottomans that had arrived from one of my online shopping adventures.


Three weeks later, here is the room ready for the Jane Coslick Holiday Tour of Homes.  We had gotten the draperies hemmed, purchased and installed the TV and DVD and a phone.  We also added some accessories.



This is such a wonderful spot in which to sit--it is possibly my favorite room.  I can just imagine myself enjoying a glass of iced tea and looking out on the back yard with the beautiful light shining in.  It makes me smile and feel all sun-shiny inside.  Relaxing.  Love it.

If you'd like to have a relaxing time at the Coral Cottage contact Jim Heflin at Tybeecottages.com  and he will be glad to set things up for you!

    1. It is fun to move things around until they are just right. I'm finding that no matter how much I plan, things need to change around a bit to look their best. Thankfully most of the stuff in the Coral Cottage can look nice in any of the other rooms.
