Ok, Ok. I am thinking by now you are getting tired of my coastal theme this week. Jane Coslick represents coastal design and that is her main work. She has that pop of color in every room. She is also a firm believe of restoration and salvaging materials as much as possible.
Jane designs for “coffee in the morning and cocktails at night. Pull out a daybed and there’s no better place to fall asleep to the sound of the ocean,” she says.
Jane rarely passes up a chance to promote preservation of classic beach cottages. “I hope people appreciate the potential of funky little beach shacks and fight to keep them,” she says. In this kitchen, glass-tile countertops in iridescent sea shades play up the room’s shoreside charm, but it’s the screened pantry door with a conch shell knob that really turns heads.
“Wood walls and ceilings are just about the most important thing in a house,” Jane says. “Go with wood, even if your budget allows it on only a single wall.”
“Look for original wood beneath carpet and behind drywall or cheap paneling. Wood gives a house its character,” Jane says. Unpainted boards saved from this original home now cover walls in the dressing area adjacent to the outdoor shower.
“There’s just something about having a piece in a room and knowing you won’t walk into the neighbor’s house and find the same thing,”
