The challenge of taking a modest yet charming cottage built in the 1940s saddled with a “choppy layout and minimal daylight” was beautifully accomplished by taking the home in a lively direction by infusing spring color hues, removing walls and extending the kitchen, according to architect D. Stanley Dixon and interior designer Betty Burgess.
A passion for art influenced a color plan of plum and lavender hues with a splash of greens and yellows. The fabric choices followed suit resulting in an assortment of delicate florals mixed with geometric patterns. Transitional furnishings brought an eclectic feel to the modernized cottage that needed to accomodate 12 grandchildren.
Transformation of the once enclosed screened in porch into a spacious family room bursting with natural light made possible with the addition of an enormous 11 foot arched iron window solidly anchored the cottage renovation into a home to be enjoyed for many years.
The eye-catching front door simply adds tremendous curb-appeal to this delightful cottage renovation!
