Jayne's Cottage

My friend Jayne lives in this darling colonial with her 3 kids, Labrador retriever Elly, and husband.
Every inch has oozes with detailing. Around each corner is something interesting and beautiful. She has created a HOME that is comfy, cozy, and just too darn adorable!
There are barn stars everywhere. She got this red locker storage unit at Pottery Barn years ago. I heart that big red barn canvas!

The plantation shutters are to die for and contrast nicely with the red walls!


Here is my little plug: I made her those red frames and Banks Family sign!

Love the colors in this huge canvas!


This is one of my favorite pieces of furniture in her house. It is a soft faded greenishblue color with a butcher block top and sits in her kitchen.......sigh


The kitchen is under construction. She just got slab granite countertops and shortly will be intalling white subway backsplashes. A new larger window went in above the sink and the cabinets were recently painted! Love the contrast of the white cabinets with the exposed black hardware!

It's all in the details!

The family room has these fabulous built in's that cover an entire wall. Each cabinet and drawer has dividers built in for perfect organization!

SMALL WORLD! I know Jayne's sister Marilyn - we lived in Portland at the same time and became friends through a playgroup when our girls were born! I am 99% sure that your Jayne is my friend Marilyn's sister! SMALL WORLD>

Thanks Melaine for the tour of Jayne's home.It looks so comfy and family friendly, yet stylish too. Just what I am striving for. I would so love to know where she got that great red barn canvas. It is stunning and would be great in our home.
