"Screened Inn" Kitchen, Baths & Master Bedroom

Hello Friend- and welcome to "Screened Inn"...
the magazine!

Photobucket

I'm kidding.
It's not actually a real-deal-completely-finished magazine.
We just started to throw it together yesterday, for fun.

Photobucket

But we have been working on a real, extra fancy-schmancy e-zine that we do hope to finish and release very soon!

It'll be free of charge to all those who want to read it, and we'd like to release a new one each season. It'll include interviews, tutorials, and of course, house tours and decorating ideas galore!

More details about that coming soon, but for now, you can check out our Screened Inn project by clicking on the flipbook below.

But, real quick, here's a look at what the kitchen looked like when we got there earlier last month...

Once the magazine is open, you can turn the pages by clicking on the little curled up page corner located at the bottom right of each page.


Click to launch the full sized magazine

Hope you enjoyed the tour of the kitchen, bathrooms, and master bed & bathroom!

We had so much fun working on them.

Stay tuned for photos of the "Lemonade Mermaid" bedroom, the "Sand & Sea" bedroom, and the dining/living room later this week!

In other news, we finally started a "The Lettered Cottage" Facebook page!

Love it! The magazine is so much fun to flip through. The ideas in there are inspired. The cottage looks so pretty and welcoming.

Thanks for sharing your talent with us. I only hope I'm able to put some of the inspiration I get from you to appropriate use. :)

Thanks again,

Layla,
I absolutely adore the fabric that you used on the kitchen table as a runner! Did you purchase it online? If so, could you send me the link?
Thanks!

Between You and Me said...

Layla! You did such a great job with the e-zine! I love it!

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Krys72599 said...

MORE please! LOVED The Screened Inn "magazine"!!!

Ginger@cottageonrosewood said...

Layla, it all turned out so beautiful. I love every room and couldn't pick a favorite. My only complaint is that I wish I could see more of that bedroom with the twin beds. GORGEOUS colors. Love the door turned headboard, the kitchen light, the stool in the kitchen, I could go on and on. Great job and kudos to Diane for having found some great things to work with.

Kim - A Creative Spirit said...

wow, what a GREAT way to showcase the cottage... How did you create it that way?????? Can't wait to see your ezine....

Shari Sunday said...

I have been waiting for more glimpses of the Screened Inn. Love your style. Love your site. The ezine is good but my favorite is the presto-changeo photos on your blog. You and Kevin are an inspiration. I am enjoying watching your ventures grow and blossom.

Kathy said...

Thanks! Loved the e-magazine and love your e-bopk I read over just two cups of coffee! Trying to fix up my *sorta scary* recently purchased house, to make it as lovely as yours! Thanks for the great ideas!

Leen said...

love the Screened Inn e-zine! Great idea. Can't wait to show James when he gets back.

geri said...

OH MY GAWD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Layla and Kevin, you out did yourselves this time.
I am going to have save ,save ,save and visit this cottage of pure restful, beach vibe very soon.
I love the colors, the mixing of blue that you do so naturally, and all the Layla touches.
I am off shopping (actually junking) for some fun red splashes to throw somewhere in my farmhouse with an identity crisis, beach house.
You always inspire me.
You have taught so many to do what they love, live how they love and always follow a dream.
Love Facebook too.
Cheers to you!!
Just beautiful. geri.

Hey Layla!
Your design job at tybee must have been a HUGE hit, TJ and I tried to book a cottage and they're all booked up for JULY!! We are going to Folly Beach, SC instead. :( I was SO looking forward to trying to stay in one of the cottages. Oh well, maybe next year. :) I love everything you guys did to the Screened Inn....very sweet! :)
Hope you have a great week and please pray it doesn't rain on us while we're gone! :)

jacqui said...

I think the master bedroom is still my favorite :)

Amazing job with the e-zine, ps. You'll be in print in no time, I'm sure!

Miss Mustard Seed said...

Great e-zine! What fun! The rooms look beautiful. One correction, I'm pretty sure the color "stolen kiss" is a Sherwin Williams color, not BM, unless they both have the same name for that red.

jacqui said...

PS - if anyone wants to vote on this on kirtsy, I added it over there - my user name is JacquiBFD.

Funky Junk Interiors said...

I'm so stunned on this cool online magazine idea, I just finished pouring my coffee into a small water glass. :P

That magazine was the coolest thing ever! It's so nice to view the decor in a larger format. I had no idea this kind of thing was available.

The pops of colour everywhere in your decor was so 'cottage fun!' And that light was to die for. I've been wanting to attempt something similar forever in my kitchen with pipes. You've just proven it CAN be done. Awesome. :)

Thanks for the fun tour, Layla and Kevin! You guys really outdid yourselves.

Always amazed, Donna

Teresa said...

HOly Cow how fun...get wait to see your e-zine!
You guys are my go to spot for inspiration!
Happy Day

Lisa said...

You did an amazing job on not just the decorating, but also in your cool presentation through the e-zine! LOVE IT! I had a question about the red cabinet with the dark stain showing. Could you explain how you did that to achieve that final look? Luv it! Thanks for always helping with my decorating "fix" for the day! lol

Cheryl said...

How beautifully done!!
Love the kitchen. So bright and bold, yet inviting. All the rooms look great that you showcased in the ezine. You and Kevin did a great job.

fairfieldhousenj.com said...

Layla and Kevin -

Love the magazine format used in sharing your latest piece of art! The Screened Inn looks amazing and I love the contrasting, unpredictable pops of color you used throughout.

Your Friend,
Deborah

Lisa said...

Loved the Screened Inn e-zine. Very clever. I want a bedroom just like yours. So peaceful. I love the quote you put on the wall. The kitchen is amazing too.

Thanks for all your inspiring ideas.

Lisa

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

Chris said...

Layla, you have outdone yourselves! Every little detail is absolutely amazing! I don't know whether to comment more on the creative magazine spread or the actual designs. They were both so fabulous! Great job!

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

You guys never cease to amaze me. What a beautiful little magazine you put together! Love it.

Talysa said...

Martha Stewart eat your heart out! That is GORGEOUS! I do believe I would never want to leave that cottage!

Would you mind sharing the white you used on trim and walls? White is so darn tricky! Did you use the same in each room?

Emily@TheWickerHouse said...

I'm INN-LOVE! Your magazine was soo much fun to look at. I read it 3 times. What darling rooms. I'd love to stay there. Oh and I'm a Facebook Fan!

Katie @ On the Banks of Squaw Creek said...

Hi Layla and Kevin-

It makes me smile when I see the great talent you two have- you are so talented in every aspect of the word. Your e-zine is just perfect. You have such "vision, style, and purpose." I think it is going to take you far in the design world.
Looking forward to reading and seeing more.
My best-
Diane

Pam said...

I just love the e-zine and those photos are beautiful. Especially love the red enamal topped cabinet. I can't wait to see the yellow bedroom.

How fun!

*Love* the red and white stripes in the kitchen and totally digging the pendant light fixture.

Ann said...

Just fanastic! And what a unique way to showcase your work. I loved the magazine! You are both very talented. I saved it to savor later and share with friends.

Megandvd@Beauty in the Attempt said...

I will relish the day when I can say.."I know Layla Palmer" ---and I have the bathroom and bedroom to prove it. :)

Cheers~

Heather said...

Wow - you are so tech savvy! If you're trying to land a job in the magazine biz, I think you're on your way. You do it all, the designing, photography, page layouts, writing... they wouldn't even know where to have you focus!
Love the cottage! In the one kitchen photo you can see into the master bedroom and the desk has polka dot stuff (blue and red)folded and put in the side of it. Is that a blanket or towels and where did you get it?
~Heather

brockey said...

Y'all are so, so talented! It is such a gift! I'm so impressed with the e-zine and the lovely pictures, captions and of course, with the beautiful cottage.
Fantastic job!

Kimberly@theunweddingblog said...

Just looking at the pictures makes me want to pour a glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade and pretend I'm at the beach! What a great place, and even though I am jealous that I didn't win the name contest, I love the name "Screened Inn!"

One Shabby Old House said...

Fabulous! I adored everything that you did. It was simply charming.
You are amazing girl! And I have to agree your magazine would be wonderful.

jacqui said...

Alright, it's on the front page of kirtsy now!

Cara @ Whimsy Smitten said...

Sigh. Can I have your life? Or at least your creativity, drive, ideas and energy?!

No? Alright, well... thank you at least for sharing all this loveliness, so I can live vicariously through you. :)

Nita {ModVintageLife} said...

That cottage turned out so darling! I could move right in. I love the combo of turquoise, aqua and red.

Future Mrs. D said...

Layla..I love your style, I have been reading your blog for months now & noticed a few months back that you had visited Tybee.. I loved that considering we had planned our honeymoon there. Long story short.. We spent the week of June 28th -July 3rd on the North Shore. I am absolutly mesmerized by it and have been obsessed with finding my own little cottage down there now.. Anyhoo, small world! You did a great job, capturing Tybee, and a little Savannah.

Erin @ Two Story Cottage said...

WOW. Loved the magazine. I've looked @ it three times already. I really like the light. Also, I think the twine holding the toilet paper is fun! I love the color scheme overall. And wow your magazine really looks like the real deal!

LaurenFaythe said...

I am so impressed by you two! Your work is awesome, and what I love most is that you work on these projects together!

Lissa said...

Good. Stinking. Grief! You are amazing, Layla and Kevin!! How do you find extra hours in the day that the rest of us don't know exist? I mean, I'm an industrious person who doesn't waste tons of time, but I can't imagine getting done everything that you two do... And you do it so _well!_ Thanks for sharing your gifts with us!

Renee said...

Love the e-zine; can't wait for more! I also now want to go back to Tybee Island even more than I did before. Cottage looks amazing.
