Pop Art Paradise
The owners of The Applewood Manor, a boutique bed and breakfast in Montford, reached out to The Hands of Sean Perry Co. in 2023 for another renovation project — this time, for their cozy Cortland Cottage space.
The team quickly got to work transforming the historic room to include all the comforts of a modern, boutique hotel-like experience, while still honoring all Historic Resources Commission guidelines. In the bath, they installed spa-quality heated flooring, a new Grohe faucet, and vibrant blue tile from Mediterranean Tile. Throughout the room, the crew laid new French Oak engineered hardwood flooring and added fresh, locally sourced wooden windowsills from Green River Woods for a more rustic feel.
With help from the owner and operator, who is an interior designer, the crew added pops of color throughout the room — painting the door a bold shade of red and hanging colorful modern artwork with a decidedly canine theme, honoring the owners’ beloved French bulldogs: Cleopatra, Pearl and Ziggy Stardust.
