Guest Cottage...


Just from the outside, I wouldn’t mind staying in this guest cottage on the farmstead of designer Ann Nicholson. Nicholson rescued all these furnishings from a North Carolina Flea Market and gave them a dramatically new look and life. It would seem Nicholson takes time to invest in unlikely hodgepodge and neglected antiques to imaginatively repurpose them again. Fittingly her local home-design firm is called Brocante, which is French for ‘junk’.
