Lessons From Camp: Cottage Inspiration for Home, Via Houzz.com

Embrace the bones, and 11 other design tips from a reborn summer camp in the woods of Wisconsin

Tereasa Surratt and husband David Hernandez bought a decrepit summer camp from a group of expatriate Latvian priests. The next step was to spruce the place up. Surratt, the designer behind Tereasa Style, and Hernandez, a former camper, didn’t want to abandon Camp Wandawega’s roots, so they embraced them.

With findings from the spread of camp regalia and avid scavenging on Craigslist, yard sales, eBay and businesses about to close, the couple refurbished and renewed the spaces with care. They didn’t remodel — the plumbing still creaks from over 86 years of use — but they did put hours of TLC into equipping the camp with comfortable, stylish furnishings.

In addition to being a mother, running camp, designing interiors and working as an advertising executive at Ogilvy & Mather in Chicago, Surratt wrote a book on the camp’s redesign (Found, Free, and Flea). We talked with her about her style and collected her tips for bringing the rustic camp vibe to your home.
