Vintage saris made into shams and bolster covers dictated Jackson's design path in the bedroom. "I found the saris online and thought that they would make an eclectic addition to the space. Throughout the process, I just went with what I felt like I would want to see and feel in a beach cottage," she says.

The rope-covered loft-bed pillar is a nod to the cottage's nautical roots in White Hill; the cottage is just a few minutes from the beach.
Due to the living room's unique floor plan, Jackson persuaded her clients to embrace a cream-colored hide area rug versus an expected rectangular sisal rug.
The living room speaks the easy language of summer: A plump sofa and a casually placed throw share the space with the clients' weathered trunk.
Jackson is a big fan of the fig-leaf throw pillow print. "I'm really pleased to see Peter Dunham create such a gorgeous fabric with fig leaves; they're a great way to go botanical without going overboard with florals," she says.
