Summer Update #3: Before and After

I ordered a new quilt for the Cottage while my tenant was out of the country serving on a mission team.


It’s not better, just different. The colors are deep red and turquoise on white.


And its a little lighter for the summer.

The “bedroom” in the Cottage — Before.
Cottage Bedroom — After.

It looks as though we changed the wall color but that is not the case. The “before” photo is closer to the true color of the walls.

Love the paisley detail.

The new quilt was a hit with its new owner.

Do you have a favorite color combination?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
