Discover The Formula For A Sophisticated Cottage Makeover
See how designer Emily Griffin used beadboard panelling, antiques and a watery palette to transform a drab cottage into a stylish summer house.
Emily started by replacing the drywall throughout the main living areas with beadboard panelling. She created a welcoming entryway with a country vibe by bringing in an antique bench and vintage-look mirror. The kitchen and dining areas were combined to create an open-concept space with a nine-foot dining table in the center. A servery tucked into the corner features reclaimed wood shelves. Just off the kitchen is a sitting room, where a stone fireplace steals the show. In the sunroom, a minimalist approach was taken to let the natural surroundings shine. Upstairs, the master bedroom has a sophisticated feel, thanks to quiet, patterned wallpaper and a colonial-style bed. Emily took the ensuite bathroom down to the studs and added a new window, herringbone floors and shiplap walls.
