For any lover of cottages and cottage lifestyles who was fortunate enough to have
been in Charleston this past Spring, the Symphony Showhouse provided a stunning opportunity to view the best in cottage décor
Maine Cottage, a leading retailer of cottage furniture and home accessories, was asked to create a cottage feeling for a 4,000 square foot
1940's Arts and Crafts bungalow near the Battery Row area of this historical city. Headquartered in Yarmouth, Maine, but with
a showroom in Charleston, Maine Cottage was the perfect choice for this task and its selection of furniture, fabrics and bold
color scheme turned the home into a cottage classic for this special occasion.
The result was
a "family gathering place" permeated with an atmosphere of comfort, joy and practicality. Each room overflowed
with a spirit of warmth and conviviality, accented by a vibrant combination of "beachy" colors that visually balanced
all of the rooms and created a uniform sense of casual cottage elegance.
