After

Blair and Janet Dobbins liked their house, but have always thought that it was a little dull and did not really stand out from the other houses in the neighborhood. So, in order to gain more curb appeal, they decided to transform their conservative and bland Colonial home into a romantic English cottage. They wanted to take care of problems such as the plain walkway and a crumbling roof.

The design team made up of sisters Patricia Gold and Kim Hinderliter transformed the once stiff and awkward house into a soft and warm English country home. Highlights include a new copper roof, wooden railings, brick walkway and a rose-lined white picket fence.
