My friends over at Kitka recently posted a hodgepodge of cottage photos - We must be drinking the same lake water, because I had the same thing in mind.
We've progressed in the bunky, our new blue lamps and Pottery Barn shades perfection. We found two white side tables that are great at our bedside and a slew of Ikea textiles add the right colours and textures.
And we've finally decided what to do with the floors. We're going to tear up the carpet (a hideous commercial-industrial grey) and lay down plywood. Not only will this add structural support to our lakeside abode, but when painted-out in glossy white, they'll brighten the place up incredibly. If we get really ambitious, we might take the paint up and over the walls and ceiling rafters to really blow-out the space, otherwise that project can wait until next year.
