Designer Jill Cordner shares a project where she turned a client's California cottage into a happy home:
This was a fun and exuberant project done on a budget. The client recently bought a cottage that had great bones but a bland personality. She LOVES all things candy colored and with pizazz, so a large part of my role in the project was to edit, show her what would physically fit in the space, and keep the big picture in mind.
• The inspirations were multiple: we treated each space as its own little world: • The bathroom was a preppy/nautical inspiration that we got from the existing white wainscoating and oil rubbed bronze fixtures. • The bedroom and adjacent dressing room were a girly enchanted forest inspiration. • The office is a library feeling antique map inspired room. The kitchen wall color was inspired by a tiffany box. • The dining nook took a Parisian turn originally inspired by an existing black, white and bamboo French stool.
One issue that we had to overcome was the tiny dining room. We ordered a modular striped banquette so that the small room can now comfortably seat 4-5 people. It is a great project — done largely with flea market and yard sale finds, in addition to Ballard Designs, Target, Urban Outfitters, Crate & Barrel and other retailers.
