I can’t believe how fast August is flying by….and before you know it — Labour Day Weekend will be upon us!! Tick Tock, Tick Tock!! Arrrrrrrghhhhhhhh!!!!
Yes, I’m panicking because our original deadline was to have the Bunkie fully finished – inside & out — for the Aug 25th weekend….but sadly that is not happening. Sometimes you just can’t control Mother Nature – all that rain we got last week delayed our plan for staining the exterior. This past weekend we worked on the interior of the Bunkie and will work our way outside by the end of this weekend. So our little “guest cottage” will have to be unveiled over the long weekend.
In the meantime, let me show you some more great photos I found on Pinterest that is inspiring my decor theme and colour palette for the Bunkie. Photos from Sarah’s Cottage have definitely influenced my colour scheme…and really all because of the drapery in this photo.
I currently have similar striped sunbrella fabric drapery in my gazebo up at the “glamper”. I have since taken them down to be laundered and eventually hung up on the 2 windows inside the Bunkie. And voila, my colour palette has been born: Blue, lot of White, with hints of pale yellow and green! I want it to have a bit of a “vintage – beachy – glam” vibe to it. So you better believe it’s going to have a chandelier in it!
These following pictures also inspired my floor plan for this 10 x 12 space:
The main goal of getting our Bunkie was to create a little guest cottage that could comfortably sleep a family of four when friends come to visit. So having a double bed and bunk beds is a must. Similar to the Bunkie above.
These quilts are super fun…but unfortunately I don’t have any and neither does my mom. Hoping to find some while I scour some antique markets in the next few weeks.
And last but not least is the floor plan I created that should fit a family of 4 comfortably. I will get into more detail about the floor plan in my next blog post along with pictures of the cutest little Bunkie you ever saw!! (but I’m biased of course!) Casa Da Costa – Seaton will soon be open!!

I’d love to hear your thoughts on Project Bunkie so far…..so click away in the comments section below!!
Hi Everyone! It feels like I have been on vacation forever, which I guess I sort of have been. Although it hasn’t been all fun and games!! My exciting news is that we bought a 10 x 12 Bunkie that we are currently decorating into a little guest cottage where we have our “summer home.”
To get my creative juices flowing I started a “Bunkie Decor Inspiration Board” on Pinterest. Here are some bunkies that I fell in love with:
This last one inspired me into deciding how I would paint the exterior of the Bunkie. I’m loving the blue with white trim. Isn’t it adorable.
So in case you are wondering, this is what my little Bunkie looks like except ours will only have one door versus two.
In my next post I will share with you how I want to decorate it on the inside.
What do you think of my summer decorating project? Leave me a comment and let me know.
