The Vintage Cottage


Using serene shades of off-white throughout, Jane softened the vivid pink palette favored by her mother-in-law to create the perfect backdrop for the beautifully aged treasures that give her home its singular charm. The living room holds cherished pieces, such as the handsome mirrored screen passed down from her mother-in-law and a portrait of Jane’s son as a teenager that hangs above an antique desk in a washed-blue hue.


A pair of arched windows reclaimed from a lakehouse is incorporated into the sunroom’s expansive wall of windows, where gauzy draperies frame the view of the pretty and peaceful garden beyond. A large framed mirror reflects the sunlight streaming in, amplifying the room’s radiance and giving it an irresistible ambiance.
