Episode 108: Contemporary Cottage
Homeowners Carol Appenzeler and Rick Hawkins would like to transform their plain-looking '50s bungalow into a warm cottage. They have turned to Carol's sister, landscape designer Jill Appenzeler, who achieves the cottage look by eliminating the straight edge features of a '50s home by adding curves to create a softer, more intimate cottage feeling.
She replaces a crumbling step, paints the front door and trim, changes the face of the garage door, adds decorative details and fills the flower bed with plants of various sizes, shapes and colors.
