When Lindsay Jackman and her husband purchased this small white cottage in Greenville, South Carolina, they were ready to get their hands dirty. They planned on extensive renovations including tearing down walls, expanding the kitchen, re-working the floor plan, and adding much needed curb appeal to the exterior.
The result is a cozy and magazine-worthy interior with a modern open concept floor plan. The decor is an eclectic blend of bohemian, modern, and farmhouse styles. Each space is unique and comfortable, and the perfect place for a young family to call their home. Take the full tour below.
With the help of their contractor, Lindsay and her husband removed a large wall between the future kitchen and living room. Then they added rustic details with the exposed wood beam and columns, which are actually made from framing lumber as opposed to solid wood.
The built-in bookshelves provide storage, a spot for the TV, and a place to display books and accessories. The black iron light fixtures add industrial style to the space.
Originally an enclosed garage, the kitchen was built from scratch. The live wood-edged island was built by Lindsay and her husband using a pine tree from their backyard.
The dining room mixes farmhouse and bohemian style for a cozy and on-trend nook. The table is actually a large spool for electrical wire. Lindsay applied a coat of clear polyurethane to give it a finished feel.
The goal for the master bedroom was to mix masculine and feminine styles together to make friendly for both husband and wife. The creative headboard was made by gluing wood rounds to a stained piece of plywood.
The office is a bohemian masterpiece packed with more DIY projects. Lindsay painted the desk herself to look like marble. And being a self-proclaimed hippie, she decided to tie-dye her curtains!
The nursery is girly yet rustic with floral curtains and an antler light fixture. This cozy nook is the perfect place to read a bedtime story.
In the master bathroom the rustic barn wood vanity paired with the contemporary white counter top and sink creates the eclectic style Lindsay loves. The mirror is a thrift-store find painted navy blue.
