Read an Excerpt

Tybee Island today is a cottage lover's delight, thanks in a large part to designer and preservationist Jane Coslick. Over the past decade, Jane has restored dozens of these simple buildings, infusing them with new life and giving them a fresh, laid-back charm. Painted with bright, cheerful colors such as rain-slicker yellow and seafoam green and furnished in a casual country chic, these cottages invite you to take a deep breath, kick off your shoes, and just relax.

    Disappointing!

    When a sample of a book that is largely visual contains only text beware. The photographs are minimal on the page and tediously shot from the same angle. While the table of contents lists a wide variety of cottage styles the selections are similar. If I had picked this book up at a bookstore a quick flip through would have sufficed. Having purchased it as an e-book without a review was a mistake.
