To say the last few weeks have been eventful would be an understatement. It’s been a whirlwind of paint, finishing, more paint, furniture installs, accessories and more paint. Did I say paint?
The Cottage is nearly finished. We have some areas, namely the laundry and the downstairs bathroom that we still want to redo, but to see the final product has been exceedingly satisfying. It has become exactly what we wanted it to be: an ageless, relaxing space that invites visitors to stay a while.
We’ll do a full before/after unveiling after the remaining areas have photos taken 😉
Our first event Saturday was a smashing success. We hired a driver to bring guests up to the Cottage and back to their cars, which many commented felt very exclusive and posh. Friends played music, sat by a fire, nibbled and chatted in the kitchen, and came up with names for our newly completed rooms (you can view some of the rooms here)
It’s hard to say what is the favorite change. For me, it’s the kitchen. It has become so open and ready for hosting — I can just see all the wonderful meals that will be enjoyed here! This space makes you want to cook!
Bookings have begun to come in, and we are beginning to turn our attentions to the barn. It needs a little remodeling to make it a great place for events and learning seminars. We did play a little dress-up out there recently, installing the hardware needed for hanging curtains and prepping for photoshoots to take advantage of the gorgeous leaves.
Despite the drought, the leaves have been BRILLIANT — we can only imagine how they would be in a less dry year.
Full before/after post coming soon!
