A Shipshape Makeover for a 1903 Cottage
Stateroom-Inspired Storage in the Master Bath
When it came to the floors, Alicia wanted to retain the original Douglas fir, but there wasn't enough of it in usable condition. She sought wood that felt good under bare feet. "I was more focused on the look," Casey says. At a salvaged-barn-wood dealer, the couple discovered hemlock from a New York barn that satisfied them both. "It really brings a lot of character to the home," Casey says.
Shown: A wall of floor-to-ceiling cabinets in the master bath, inspired by a ship's stateroom, makes up for the lack of furniture in the master bedroom. Penny-round tile was used in all the baths as a low-cost way to add vintage-inspired detail. Skylights in the upstairs bedrooms and baths usher in natural light.
