California Cottage Charm


Changing the floor plan wasn’t in the cards when sprucing up the house, so the couple focused on freshening the home’s face. Hickory flooring went down; tongue-and-groove ceilings went up. Julie cloaked the walls, ceilings, and cabinetry in creamy white for a sense of openness and flow, as well as a neutral backdrop on which to accent different plants and accessories each season. Brian built the slatted potting ables all around the greenhouse that the couple added.
