Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

 

Built in the 1930s by Henry Ford at his winter retreat near Savannah, this former caretaker’s cottage had been abandoned for decades. Historical Concepts consulted on the restoration of the primitive, 800 square foot cottage for clients who were compelled to save it from demolition and preserve Ford’s legacy. Original poplar tongue and groove walls, heart pine floors and terra cotta roof tiles were restored, while antique lighting and architectural salvage finds were added for period authenticity. A screened porch, designed to complement the home’s historic character, adds entertaining space and a place to enjoy the coastal setting of The Ford Plantation.

This cottage shows why life is a little sweeter in the South… Enjoy!

 

Southern Cottage

You enter this cottage and you’re immediately embraced by its charm. This is a place you go to wear romantic summer dresses and flip-flops. 🙂

Washed Walls

The washed walls give this cottage a rustic feel to it. The walls were painted with a watered down paint, which contains 50% paint, 50% water.

The coffee table is a vintage piece. Artwork is by Bellamy.

Dining Room

What a cute and cozy dining room!

The chandelier is a custom design made from reclaimed and antique lighting parts. The designer is Eloise Pickard with Sandy Springs Gallery in Adairsville, Georgia.

Kitchen

This kitchen is practical and very inspirational. I really like the open shelves and the paint color on the cabinets.

The lighting is handcrafted by Eloise Pickard ((404) 252-3244), who uses parts and pieces from antique fixtures to create new light fixtures. Each piece is custom made.

Kitchen Open Shelves

The wood countertops are heart pine.

Bedroom

The bedroom is very cozy and full of charm!

Bathroom

What a fantastic space! It was beautifully restored and I love the floors.

Also, notice the vanity table here… You  always see people wanting two sinks in the bathroom, but if you don’t have the budget for a renovation, you can always add a nice vanity table and have a place for you to put your make-up without being interrupted. 

Porch

This is a great place to have breakfast in the morning… very peaceful!

 

Many thanks to the designer for sharing the details above.

Hi everyone! I just want to thank each and everyone of you for all the emails and comments I got. Your words and your prayers are giving me so much strength. 

Sometimes it’s hard to explain certain things, but this friendship has a very special place in my heart and I am always thanking God for having the privilege of having all of you here.

This blog is a big part of me… I put my heart and “uncountable” hours on these posts. Knowing that you enjoy, that you like and that you keep coming back is a gift for me. But knowing that you cared enough to send me your prayers and positive thoughts, well… that’s a blessing!

Talk to you soon! 🙂

    What a charming and comfortable cottage. Just love the colors they used and the touches of stained wood adds such warmth. So hope you are doing well – happy Tuesday!

  3. Petra said,

    I could move into this place right now! Love everything about it – I prefer super small homes than medium-large homes. Good idea re putting a table in the bathroom rather than the extra expensive of a vanity sink. Thanks so much for showing this gorgeously humble home.

  4. Monica said,

    Amazing to see how beautiful they crafted the ceilings with all the wood.

  5. Karen said,

    A down to earth, comfy, cosy home…..my kind of place! Some of the same words I would use to describe this blog’s creator. Thank you for your work, and for your words of encouragement.

  6. So charming and homey and cozy. Well done!! Enjoy your day…

    My husband and I are putting plans together for our dream home. This cottage is exactly what I want. I love the washed walls. I’ve never seen that before. Could you decorate my home? 🙂 Great job!
