The summer has come and gone, in a few months, I’ll be celebrating a year at the Cottage. What began as a seed of an idea has blossomed into an unforgettable experience. A blank canvas has been painted with memories, taking me on a journey that I never imagined. The Cottage has become a place of new beginnings. And the story continues to unfold…
The blog will be an extension of our life here, in addition to my design journey, I’ll be sharing ideas on creating a little Sweet Pond Cottage style in your home, from entertaining to gardening and time-tested recipes passed down through generations. I’ve been fortunate to be partnering with some of the biggest names in the industry, hoping that it will inspire you to bring a little Sweet Pond Cottage Style into your home.
What is Sweet Pond Cottage Style? It’s an updated mix of lake cottage and cabin, with nods to the outdoors, organic textures mixed with pieces that have a sense of time and place. Meaningful collections that bind the Cottage with family history, telling our life story. It’s a relaxed style mixed with clean lines, old blended with new. Comfort mixed with stylish touches. Found objects that have years of a previous life etched onto well-worn surfaces including those that nature has so graciously provided.
I have spent the past ten months scouring antique and flea markets, at times walking away empty-handed but always enjoying the hunt. It’s taken time to build a life here, and since it’s a second home, there were weekends that I just wanted to explore with my family. Going up to the mountains, or paddling around the lake on our kayaks, or simply sitting on the dock watching the most glorious sunsets.
I hope you’ll follow along, I’ll begin posting here on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and soon I’ll be sharing our life via our YouTube channel with tips and inspiration. Are you following us on Instagram?
