Coast Awhile Cottage is a biggie--5 bedroom house and a 1 bedroom apartment all under one roof! It took a lot of hunting and gathering to fill it up! When the house was ready for decorating, Jane Coslick and I placed the furniture in the rooms and then we put most of the decor items in one spot--like a store where we could "shop" what we needed.
Here is the Pillow Department...
The Bedding Department (some of the fabric remnants I got at a sale are there waiting to be made into pillows...
Let there be light...the Lamp Department
Mirrors and Artwork Department
And last but not least, Hooks (an important thing for beach houses)
|I'm crazy about my fishbone hook!|
It is good to lay everything out so you can see what you have and what you still need. Sometimes when you have a chance to play with all the pretties, you can come up with fresh ideas and combinations that you might not have considered at first.
Next post I want to finish up what we started in this post and this one as I show you how the living room at Coast Awhile Cottage turned out!
