A Story Book Cottage South Carolina by Houzz

The coastal Lowcountry-style cottage of Carole Marsh and Bob Longmeyer exudes whimsical storybook charm both inside and out. The children’s book author and her husband were drawn to both the sunny location of their Bluffton, South Carolina, home and the relaxed style of Hilton Head Island. Their home’s casual cottage style matches their new surroundings.

Decorating a cottage can be a challenge, as the smaller spaces can easily look crowded. The trick for Marsh has been to put what she loves into her home and find places for the things that catch her eye.

Marsh’s worktop is also made from reclaimed barn wood, so it takes the beating of scissors, rulers, Sharpies and spilled coffee. Built-in cabinets contain all her research, reference materials and other paperwork.

Marsh, seen here, writes fiction, nonfiction, educational and self-help books for kids. She was a pioneer of self-publishing and print-on-demand publishing. Her creative style and sense of whimsy also guide her home designs and decor.

Until we meet again,
