Collette and her husband bought this cottage in the country town of Nannup just before Christmas of 2023, spending about three months renovating it into an incredibly colorful, patterned oasis.

They ripped out carpets, removed the old kitchen (which Collette says they found a mouse nest in!), redid the bathroom (which she says was leaking everywhere), and finally, they “painted every surface in sight.”

This cabinet and the lamps are Facebook Marketplace finds.

“We are using it for a couple’s retreat; there is no TV to encourage play and connection! We have board games, chess, card games, a library to read in, an outdoor bath for two, and a double hammock. No excuses to not reconnect as a couple,” Collette explains.

In order to achieve their goal of a “colorful, vintage, eclectic, and relaxing” atmosphere, they used “a lot of thrifted and vintage goods” as well as incorporated a ton of color, pattern, texture, “and, of course, plants.”

Although there are a number of delightful elements worth pointing out in the cottage, Collette calls special attention to her favorite room, the kitchen, because it has a yellow floor and an orange fridge and is an “inspiring and just a joyful space to be in.” She also loves the kitchen for the wall that features a collection of vintage plates, which she says the “effect is wonderful and so interesting.”

And when it comes to giving design advice, Collette says you should have a “strong and clear vision for how you want the place to feel, but be ready to be flexible as the house tells you what will actually work and what won’t.”
