Historic on Highland Avenue – The Gardener’s Cottage


I posted this eating room yesterday on my instagram and thought I would put up right here too and let you know a bit of concerning the venture that’s nearly wrapping up.  That is my buddy Mary’s residence.  I had talked about some months again that she had bought this residence and actually by no means dreamed I would be employed to brighten it.  What an honor and pleasure to work on this stunning historic residence only a quick stroll away.  Aside from the children bedrooms and the kitchen and baths which had been already finished, I wound up engaged on all of the rooms. 


I began engaged on the home in earnest round June 1st. I am so thrilled with the outcomes.  I’ll put up quickly on the remainder of the home and I promise you’ll adore it.  It is such a gorgeous residence all by itself.  So many unique particulars nonetheless intact, you may inform it has been in loving arms all through its historical past.

So a bit of about this eating room.  Mary was dwelling in a tract residence right here in Redlands previous to this buy and her fashion was Farmhouse with a bit of Boho on the aspect.  We slowly however certainly transitioned it right into a contemporary, stylish conventional look.  

This was the room I began with.  It is instantly off the entry to the precise and I knew the minute I noticed it what wallpaper to decide on.  That is Ralph Lauren Marlowe within the Mom of Pearl colorway and it’s drop lifeless attractive in particular person.  I imply it actually makes you gasp a bit of.  The chandelier was discovered at an area vintage retailer.  We saved the massive desk and added a few Louis chairs.  I imagine we discovered the rug at Lowes of all locations.  They use this eating room each single day as it’s proper off the kitchen.  

I can not let you know the paint shade as a result of the home was freshly painted earlier than they moved in.  It is a smooth creamy off-white.  This room set the tone for the remainder of the home so keep tuned to see the remaining.

Only a aspect notice…Blogger, omg Blogger what have you ever finished to the unique format/publishing?  I for the lifetime of me can not work out why they alter issues so typically and make issues so tough.  Eradicating a photograph was a easy click on and now it is a 3 half state of affairs.  I am making an attempt to re-learn and that makes it much more tough to weblog.  Please forgive any errors you might even see…I am engaged on it!

So what do you suppose?  Do you want?  Inform me every part!  xo
