Before and After

It's Claire here! I FINALLY had some professional pictures taken of the Isle of Hope Cottage I've been working on and wanted to share the before and after photos with you. Allison Morgan, who is a wonderful Savannah photographer (and a lovely person!), took all the great shots. She also has a fabulous historic house you can check out here

This is a small guest room that was built over the garage.  Here is the before...







The walls were covered in shiplap and painted a creamy white.  We added a dramatic upholstered headboard we made with Libeco Flax Linen with a tape trim and antique brass nailheads.



Then we had curtains made in an ivory linen and added a trim of a gold on gold animal print (Glam Skin by Duralee).  We used bamboo shades for some texture and privacy. We reupholstered an existing club chair in a taupey/gray cotton velvet. The brass lanterns are from Circa Lighting and then we added fun patterned light sleeves from Kaarskoker. The bedside lights are the Boston Functional Lights by Circa. The linen bedding is by Libeco and the gold striped bedskirt is from John Robshaw. A wool & sisal carpet by Merida Meridian makes it feel like you're in a cloud!


These are the great photos that Allison took...






Let me know what you think!  I'll be posting the other rooms all week, so stay posted.

So funny! I was quickly researching the John Robshaw bedskirt you used - it is on OKL as I type - because it seemed to be just what I was looking for. Ironically in a space that I am getting those same Boston library light from Circa. What a lovely room! Cheers!
