Coral and Olive for Kate’s Cottage

Yesterday I snuck into Kate’s house while she was away at work. I was there to walk her little funny face dog, but while I was there, I couldn’t help but zhush the space up a bit and snap a few pics, because lo and behold – homegirl took that advice from the previous Kate’s Cottage Re-Do plan that I had blogged earlier. The apartment feels nice and as Sarah put it, “slightly more glamorous and quiet” than planned. It’s true, and it is in a good way. Here is a check-in.

Now, don’t get too bored with me. This is not a professional photo shoot job, I was just lurking around with my iPhone. But it felt sweet inside on this cloudy Brentwood day, and I wanted to share our progress with you. There are still a few things to do before we call in Tessa Neustadt for the after shots.

  1. Get some better hanging hardware for those curtains. I suggest these.
  2. Find the right fabrics to update the pillows and dining chairs.
  3. Grab a fun and moody rug for layering atop the jute area rug.
  4. Find some art for that large open frame and a piece (how about a textile) for the wall closer to the door.
  5. Add some life with some plants.

I’ve been leaning more and more towards the color combo of Coral and Olive for Kate’s Cottage projects. Here is a little inspiration from the webz. How do we like the softer palette?
