WE INTERRUPT THIS FRENCH VACATION…
Sorry to interrupt the travel log but I’m happy to report that this weekend I completed the foreword, tweaked the introductory chapter so it almost meets with my approval and finished Chapter 6, which I had abandoned when I flew off to Paris.
Although this Delaware shore cottage is only about 14 years old, it looks as if it has been home to generations of beach goers thanks to a host of old pine and oak furniture and carefully selected vintage accessories and collectibles.
Despite the impressive wood pieces the look is light and airy. All the walls, fabrics and decorative touches are shades of warm whites, ivory and cream.
Note the faux drapery valance. Pairs of narrow fabric tie-backs are sewn together, knotted on the ends and tied to the wooden curtain ring to create top interest. Nice detail!
