Today I am happy to introduce you to An Urban Cottage – the March Red Door Home Blog of the month.
An Urban Cottage is a new to me blog that has quickly become a favorite. You know I love a good house renovation story and this one is superb! An Urban Cottage chronicles Steve’s journey of restoring his 1842 Greek Revival cottage in Boston, MA. Along the way he also shares tidbits about flowers, decorating, favorite finds, and more.
Below is how Steve’s house looked when it was purchased.
Here is what it looks like today.
Steve has done such amazing work on his house that not too long ago it was photographed for and will be featured in the new Better Homes and Gardens New Cottage Style book.
The book is not available yet but is scheduled for release in June of this year. You can visit HERE to preorder your copy.
Steve’s current project involves an update of the bedroom shown below.
He is stripping wallpaper and plans to remove the turquoise paint from the floor as well as change the vintage Cape Cod cottage look into something more in keeping with the rest of the house. I can’t wait to see the results!
Thank you Steve for allowing me to feature your incredible blog! To see more Urban Cottage happenings please stop by Steve’s blog. I know you will be thrilled you did!
