A Tour of Matthews Cottage...Before & After

Here is the next completed design project on the grounds of the Island Inn on Sanibel Island...


In 1885, the Matthews family came to Sanibel Island and built a beautiful beach front home. Their home quickly became the destination for friends and family who came to visit the Matthews and the little island paradise that is Sanibel. Soon the homestead grew into a charming boarding house...that proudly stands today as the historic Island Inn. The cottage you are about to tour is the old Matthew's homestead. I am so honored to have had the privilege of creating the design for this incredible historic cottage.

The inspiration for the renovation of this beautiful old cottage is this sunset picture taken not far from the front door. Sunsets on Sanibel are spectacular. The sun slowly slips down into the Gulf of Mexico and the distant clouds burst into the most incredible palette of colors. Each little seashell sparkles in the evening light and it truly is like...well...magic.

Enjoy the before and after tour...
