My favorite thing in the 120 pages of House Beautiful's February decor ideas was so missable - one page of snapshots and a smattering of text about HB Contributing Editor Frances Schultz' home makeover in the Hamptons. It was so much fabulosity packed into such a small space - I had to have MORE! Luckily, House Beautiful online offered more (and larger) pictures. Enjoy!

Green and white, and oh so right. Love the layered curtains and the bold, graphic patterns (stripes, plaids, botanicals - and stripes again). 

Country whimsy: a painted bee... next to a bee hive basket. 

In the former garage cum sun room, big pattern dominates a little space. Carlton Varney paper and a shade worthy of a 1940s ice cream parlor sweeten the space.

There's more charm to come! Other rooms in Bee Cottage's makeover will be featured in upcoming issues of House Beautiful.

I have had two designers email me and tell me that this cottage reminded them of ME. What a compliment!! I think I could move right in. My kitchen and dining room walls are covered in the large scaled green striped fabric in the form of a wallcovering. It is so fresh and such a neutral base for my home. If you are interested at all you can see it on my sidebar of my blog. Love this cottage so much,Kathysue

I really like the exterior colors! And the ivy, of course. Not a color combination you see very often, but it has such a pretty, classic feel.

Green is so refreshing. Although I prefer black and white, I can appreciate a well gathered green room [no pun intended].
