For this month’s Siteline blog, we feature the gorgeous “wine country cottage” flat lay created for the Evermore Cottage project, designed by authorized dealer, c|s DESIGN STUDIO, of Clifton, Virginia.

The designers, Christina Simon, ASID, CKBD, Brittany Gunst and Emily Ahmad create a mix of warm, dark paint and soft wood tone to imbue a cozy cottage feel. “The client wanted the space to feel inviting and organic,” notes Simon, president of c|s DESIGN STUDIO.

Products featured in the flat lay:

Siteline Walton Door Style in MDF material, in Forge Paint

Siteline Madera Door Style in Alder wood, with Sandpiper stain

Cambria, Ironsbridge, Matte Finish

Top Knobs, Kinney Honey Bronze Pull

LVP Shore, Hatteras Oak, Luxury Vinyl Tile

Bedrosians, Casablanca, 5 x 5 Matte Tile

The c|s DESIGN STUDIO team used the Cambria quartz because of its beauty but also for durability and stain resistance.  “The Ironsbridge design from Cambria Quartz Surfaces features American-made quailty, durability and dependability,” according to Cambria.

The Casablanca tile adds a pop of interest, note the designers.
