Tilly’s Cottage started on the suggestion of my friend, Kristin, as a means to share my home renovations with family and friends back home in the States. But as I was getting ready to move out of my apartment in Dublin, Ireland, I started going through catalogs of look books that I’d created out of clippings from old magazines. It was then that I decided that Tilly’s Cottage would not only be a great way to log the renovation journey but would also be a good way for me to capture all my design loves in one place (and a blog’s not nearly as heavy to carry!). And then I thought…why stop there? I love photography, I love Dublin — why not write about that, too?
The name inspiration came from two sources — the first from my “new old house” which is, in fact, a cottage. The second comes from the little creature who had a strong influence on the purchase decision (especially the part about buying a house adjacent to a big park) and that’s Tilly.
