The Summerville Cottage
that, although I spend hours combing through interior design photos on other blogs, I seldom post photos of my own houses. There are several reasons for this: I never feel as if a room is completed,
because I'm a professional photographer, I should take the time to set up lights and make an effort to arrange flowers, etc. and usually our houses are under construction and we are living in chaos!
cottage in the enclave of Summerville, along the Savannah River in Georgalina. This post features the living room. I'll do separate posts for the rest of the house.
My style is rather eclectic - things I've collected over the years. I'll list the sources, if
anyone is interested!
Top Photo: Art by: John Hulse, Steve Northup, Yvoy and a SC artist that I can't recall the name
of. I have it written down somewhere. Just can't locate it at the moment.

We bumped out the fireplace to support the rafters above and refaced the fireplace with a
simple traditional mantle to match the rest of the woodwork in the house. This little cottage
is nearly 100 years old and needs constant care! I built a long rad cover to enclose the
non-functioning radiator. I also built the sofa table to match. We replaced the ceiling fixture with a vintage chandelier and painted the
walls BM Edgecomb Gray and the trim BM White Dove.
