Floral Inspiration


Text by Ann Zimmerman / Photography by Scot Zimmerman

Attention to detail and colors drawn from photos of spring tulips create floral inspiration and timeless appeal for this new cottage home—without breaking the budget.

New homes often lack the charming details that cottage lovers yearn for, but the designer of this home, Niki Strebel Volle, creates interest and a comfortable, inviting environment on a surprisingly small budget. At the entry of this modestly-sized Utah home, one immediately recognizes that this is a special place. Here, botanical prints featuring colorful tulips fill the wall in a grid pattern around a sleek console table, and the petal design of the orange carpet plays on the botanical theme.
