Calling all design gurus, vintage lovers, and creative souls ~I’m excited to add a fun blog series, B. RUST-a-CHIC, stories behind the rustic-cottage-chic interiors and exteriors of our home, The Pogue Cottage. True confession: My hubby and I are suckers for a good find- whether it’s a screen door, antique books, or a zinc barrel- we love the creative process of design. Much of our passions are poured into the hunt for one-of-a-kind treasures, antique gems, and unassuming pieces. Whether it’s from a flea market, up-cycled, found, or created, what draws us, is the potential of what can become as we transform extraordinary from the everyday. And who better to dream and envision with than my best friend? We’re a team, and I adore how our home is pieced together with story after story of ‘Remember when we found the first of our vintage clock collection? and ‘Ha, these teal stools- you made me drive 25 miles out of the way to find them.’ Oh, the roads we’ve gotten lost on, towns we’ve explored, and memories we’ve collected over the years. Oh, the stories reflected throughout the Pogue Cottage.
