Getting Creative With a Cottage

The homeowners' big personalities required a collaborative makeover that resulted in sparkle.

A cottage-like house, homeowners in need of help and a young new designer go head-to-head on this makeover. Bland landscape and drab paint colors don't mix with these homeowners' big personalities. Our designer and homeowners collaborate to make this place sparkle.


Terry Mulrooney may be a landscape designer by trade, but you'd never know it by looking at his home. Along with his wife, Dawn, and the fresh ideas of our designer, Shannon Mitchell, this house becomes a home with some cottage touches and inventive ideas. Here's how they accomplish it:

  • remove existing landscaping
  • add a cobblestone front patio and path
  • install new white picket fence
  • add a pergola and front arbor to walk way

  • paint new vibrant colors
  • replace garage door with French doors
  • new English style garden
  • add a water feature to front yard
  • new patio furniture
