Experience The Derry Cottage
April 1–15, you can visit The Derry Cottage, Bundoran Farm by Natural Retreat’s 2017 show home. The interiors of this beautiful 3,606-square-foot home were designed by Wendi Smith of Leftover Luxuries and the home is decorated with local pieces from many artisans and businesses, including Patina Antiques, Etc., The Shade Shop, Yves Delorme, The Market at Grelen, Ferguson Enterprise, Crutchfield, Plow and Hearth, Floor Fashions, Relics to Rhinestones, Palette Paint and Home, and Blanc Creatives. Other contributions in the cottage are from Leftover Luxuries, Fox & Crow Antiques, Shenmont Antiques, Mallon & Bennet Antiques, Girl Garage Designs, Verve Home Furnishings, Greenwood Antiques and Laurie Holladay Interiors.
When guests walk through the front entry doors, they step into a beautiful open living room with wood floors, a fireplace and grand windows allowing for plenty of natural light. The floor is completed with soft rugs from Patina Antiques, Etc. and a chic animal hide from Relics to Rhinestones.
A blue and white pillow from Patinas Antiques, Etc. adds a pop of color atop the beautiful white couch. Two charming lamps from Wendi Smith Interiors with shades from The Shade Shop are perched behind the couch. Two re-upholstered chairs frame the fireplace and inspire the room’s decor. Hand dried and framed botanicals from 1941 from Fox and Crow Antiques and a stunning gold mirror from Wendi Smith Interiors liven up the wall above the mantle.
The Patinas Antiques, Etc. console table by the staircase hosts two lamp—also from Patinas Antiques, Etc.—with lampshades from The Shade Shop. Books and other decor from Wendi Smith Interiors add color and dimension to the space.
The cottage’s kitchen has ship lap on the walls, stone counter-tops and state-of-the-art appliances, including a built-in refrigerator and microwave, and a 36″ range with a hood vent.
The master bedroom, conveniently located on the first floor, includes an en-suite bathroom and plenty of windows to incorporate more natural light. The bed showcases Yves Delorme linens that complement the white lacquered console from Patinas Antiques, Etc. Pops of green can be seen in the patterned rug below the bed from Patinas Antiques and the corner cabinet from Wendi Smith Interiors. The additional furniture pieces were re-upholstered by Wendi Smith Interiors for this project.
On the second floor, guests will find a charming loft that can be used as a second living space. Both the console table in this area and the coffee table were created from recycled materials and are from vendors at Greenwood Antiques. The antique Guatemalan bench, and vibrant rug and pillows were all from Leftover Luxuries.
Two more bedrooms are also located upstairs and can be found charmingly decorated for children. The upper level also hosts a bunk room/office, two bathrooms and a guest suite with a full bathroom over the garage.
A finished basement with a game room and additional bedrooms, soapstone terraces, an outdoor porch with a fireplace, and a garage with an attached parking shed complete this five bedroom home with four full baths and two half baths.
All proceeds from the show home will benefit the Shelter for Help in Emergency. Additionally, all those who visit will be entered into a drawing for a free five-night stay in Bath County, Virginia, with Natural Retreats. Click here for more information on The Derry Cottage.
