The design of the cabin began with the client’s discovery of an old mirror which had once been part of a hall tree. Painted in a rustic white finish, the orange pine walls of the cabin were painted by the homeowners own hand using a sock and rubbing paint with a light hand so that the knots would show clearly to achieve the look of a lime-washed wall. A custom vanity was fashioned to match the details on the antique mirror and a textured iron vessel sink sits atop. Polished nickel faucets, cast iron tub, and old fashioned toilet are from Herbeau. The antique French Iron bed was located on line and brought in from California. The peeling paint shows the layers of age with French blue, white and rust tones peeking through. Layers and layers of handmade linens by Bella Notte adorn the bed with lofty piles of pure down comforters and pillows providing the ultimate comfort for chilly evening nights.
