beach cottage client

Happy Friday my friends!
The long weekend is here and we are ready to hit the home projects. But what I'd really like to do this weekend is go to the lake--any lake!

I just found out yesterday that one of my upcoming client projects is this glorious room below.
Would you believe this is in a beach cottage?!
Fancy... :-)
As you can imagine they want to change everything but I think we'll just paint the paneling 
and ditch everything else.

I have plenty of other work to finish before I can start what will be a darling bunk room on the lake.  But this photo gets me excited.  Imagine the possibilities!

Here is a little cottage pretty to start your weekend of with cottage pretty via Sarah Richardson:

If you're not already watching Sarah's Summer House you can catch it Saturday nights on HGTV.
Enjoy your weekend! 
 I'm hoping to finish the rest of my client projects that need to get done
 and paint a few ring bearer pillows.

Do you like the "cottage" look?

  4. Such a fun project, Abby! Looking forward to seeing it come together. Happy Weekend! xo

  5. I love that show! I was super happy to see her back on TV, since 2007 reruns of Sarah's House weren't cutting it anymore.

  6. I want a cottage!! You're going to make it lovely, I'm sure! Enjoy your weekend!

  7. Wow that is a great room to get your hands on - can't wait to see the transformation. We have paneling in our basement that I'd like to paint so I'll be anxious to see the results in this room.

  8. Hi Abby! What a fun room that will turn into, I'm sure! Sarah Richardson? I want to BE her. I love her work. Her beach house is to die for. My husband hates it. See what I'm up against? Lol. Have a great long weekend my friend :)

  9. I have all of them {like 3} saved in my DVR an I am waiting for a time when I can soak it all in!! The project looks exciting!! It will be fun!

  11. In your sure hands this transformation will definitely be a fun one...can't wait to come along for the ride!


  12. Hi how funny that we both featured Sarahs work on the same day!! Love the beach cottage, whats not to love, its cozy elegant and oh so inviting. Who wouldn't want to be holed up that for the weekend with a few great books, some munchies and the company of some of your favorite people! I would love that!! Its so beautifully done, good luck wtih your project(s) and enjoy the holiday weekend!

  13. I dream of having a beach cottage...as much for the decorating as enjoying it. Love Sarah's Summer Cottage - in fact, I love everything she does!! Hope you're having a wonderful holiday weekend ~

  14. Ha Ha Abby....just posted my comment about cottages on the wrong post! I have beach brain.....:)

  15. I love the cottage look, and Sarah does it like no one else! I'm excited to be your newest follower and see how you transform this space!
