Unique lighting pieces are used throughout the house to add a little drama and much-needed additional light. A sunroom was added to the side of the cottage, keeping small original windows in place to allow more light to filter into the interior rooms. To add some storage, nooks for collections were added to the small hallway that leads to the guest and master suites. One nook has antique pewter, while the other stores their wine collection in a cleverly built-in wall space.
The master bedroom suite was made larger by adding on to the cottage across the rear of the home and adding a master bath. Since storage space is at a premium, Chris says they keep storage for clothing simple using an antique armoire, bedside tables, and chest of drawers—one for each of them.
