Stable conversion

16 Jan

Sadly, Tilly’s Cottage will never end up looking like this gorgeous stable conversion but one can always dream of future projects!  I love when I come across places which retain architectural features — it sounds obvious that one would do so but I’ve come across a lot of places where features are boarded up.  Case in point are the fireplaces in the condo in Brookline which were long-ago plaster-boarded in…

Wood beam ceilings, arched windows and French Provençal design lend a lot of warmth to this conversion.

Clever use of lighting also keeps things cozy.

    Love these pics! Very warm and inviting. I love how you work with the archicture around you. And even when there isn’t, you want to create it! Remember the mural Rob did for the entryway. Brick wall, Ivy, with water feature made of stone! LOL…Can’t wait to see what you create with Tilly’s cottage.

      I love that mural and it’s still there! It would have been a shame to just leave it as a boarded up window.

      Exactly — we just need to find a good stable in disrepair and do it up as our commune!
