New Old-Cottage Charm

Two friends become partners in design to add vintage style, modern comfort and Spanish flair to a historic home.
SUNNY AND WARM. The living room fulfills all of the homeowner’s requirements: It’s bright, has hardwood floors and features 1920s Spanish architecture. The French-blue coffee table, which is the centerpiece of the room, was a flea-market find.

Vou know that feeling you have when you relate to someone so well that you can finish each other’s sentences?
