No. 1 Go Vintage.
When searching for unique coastal design elements, Tricia Dabney of High Cotton Home & Design turns to reclaimed vintage and architectural pieces. “I like to get key pieces that are one-of-a-kind, whether it’s a vintage surfboard, arched window frames and shutters, or old hardware and frames...lots of these things can be re-purposed and hung over windows and along the walls.” Tricia has actually designed quite a few of the homes at Cinnamon Shore, including Stargazer, Carry On, Blue Willow, and Serenity Found.
Her love for unique pieces is actually what got her started here. “I did a home for a friend where we used reclaimed lumber along the bunk room walls, as well as reclaimed lumber to cover a beam in a vaulted living room. I was bringing in materials people at Cinnamon Shore hadn’t used before.”
