Homestead

Problem:

A dated waterfront cottage that has served as a transient bachelor pad for the past fifteen years. The owners wanted to turn it into a higher-end seasonal rental for visitors to the Finger Lakes Region.

Solution:

Since all the walls were white, choosing the color scheme, and painting every room was the first step. I chose light and dark shades of blue/greens (bedrooms) and gold/yellows (kitchen), and combined both those colors in the living room and porch.

For furniture, I found some treasures in the owner’s basement that were easily rehabilitated, providing a very affordable solution. We bought new rugs, and I provided custom kitsch window treatments and artwork. Although it needed to feel more inviting, I didn’t work against the retro feel that the cottage had. The floor covering in the kitchen was classic, so we went with it, and I faux wood grained the refrigerator and the stove to top it off!
