Cottages & Bungalows Magazine – October 2011

Kev and I made a trip to Books-A-Million the other day and were stoked to find the October issue of Cottages & Bungalows there on the shelf amongst all the other snazzy shelter mags!

Starting on page 48, we found an article full of photos we shot at an off-the-charts charming little cottage in North Carolina called the Cottage at Plott Creek.

We had waaaaay too much fun styling/shooting/staying there last Fall.

Here are a few sneak peeks…

The cottage is available to rent, and we’re definitely going to make a trip back there at some point. I’m dyin’ to hit up this place again too…

What a treasure trove of vintage goodness that was!

And speaking of sneak peeks into this month’s Cottages & Bungalows, Miss Mustard Seed has another great article in the October issue too:

Such a talented one, that Marian!

Alright…I’m off to help Kev attach more planks to the ceiling in the dining room. They actually go up lickety split thanks to our nail gun, I just wish the four coats of primer/paint that has to go on them first went a little more lickety split-ish!

    I am so glad you’ve been talking about this magazine! I’ve been so sad since Cottage Living went out of print. I wasn’t aware that this magazine existed. I just ordered a 3 year subscription! This should fill the void. Thanks. Great work, btw!

    Congrats on the feature! That magazine is one of my favorites! I am drooling over that front door! Love that color! :) Do you have any idea what paint color they used?

    Love the pic of the black door, but beware, we have a black door on our shingled craftsman style home and they really take some upkeep. ie spider webs, fingerprints, etc.

    Hi Layla! I know that this post was from a while ago but I have fallen head over heels for that beautiful raw wood sunburst mirror in your ‘photography’ category and tracked it back to this cottage home that you guys shot :). Any chance you know where it’s from? I would be OH so appreciative!!
