Last August, I briefly profiled an upcoming seashore cottage project
by Shelley Versteeg-Smit, the
beautiful and talented interior designer
and owner of Fishtrap Creek Interiors in Lynden, WA.
Here's a little tour of the fabulous
makeover of her 650-square-foot cottage by the sea.
The pale palette is enhanced with touches of turquoise,
creating a soothing respite for Shelley and
Do you recognize the Edwardian fireplace-turned-headboard?!
Shelley's collection of seashells take residence in the cubbies,
echoing the gorgeous seashells coverlet on the bed!
. . . a closer look at the mantle/headboard, snuggled perfectly beneath the
cottage window--ah, just right!!
Shelley's clever use of space in this tiny-but-lovely and
functional kitchen showcases her talent as a professional designer.
Many thanks, Shelley, for acquiring beautiful accents for
your cottage from Ormolulu . . . I'm honored and
totally love the results!!!
. . . in the beginning. Great vision, Shelley!
Can't wait to see what you do with the giant, French willow basket. (Stay
tuned to see the dining area--it will float your boat!!)
Please visit Shelley at Fishtrap Creek Interiors at
1899 Kok Road in Lynden, WA (360) 354-7900.
(Items from Ormolulu now in residence at Shelley's cottage: Edwardian
fireplace mantle/headboard, unique seashells collection, antique seashore
print above fireplace in living room, ornate vintage
mirror in bathroom above sink.)
This is a perfect example of why I LOVE what I do!!!
