20th Street Cottage Interior Design – Fairy Godmother Friday

Exciting things have been happening at the 20th Street Cottage, here in Downtown Bakersfield!

After having the 20th Street Cottage Community Room redesigned by the one and only Jamie Urner of Jamie Urner Interior Designs, we realized that a much needed project had landed upon our fairy wings… The cottage needed a complete facelift!! 

Jamie Urner is no stranger to the Fairy Godmother family, after Fairy Godmother Colleen produced her sister’s wedding. 

When it came time to do some revamping at the cottage, we knew just who to call. 

Once the redesign of the Community Room had concluded, we had an itch we just couldn’t scratch… We quickly had Jamie dive into design options for the hallway and kitchen.  

Cinderella’s glass slipper and fairy blue accents added subtle hints to the kitchen, and you know that we are all about the details!

We were completely thrilled with the outcome!  

We wanted a feel that combined our love of our namesake Cinderella, the class of brides before us like Jackie O., Lucille Ball and Grace Kelly, and then added finishing touches from the modern era. Jamie took all of this and created her own magic at the 20th Street Cottage!

When it came time to redesign our office, we let Jamie take the reigns. Taking productivity and elegance to create a functional workspace that would double as an elegant setting when the Fairies aren’t hard at work.   

Jamie absolutely nailed it! Adding in light touches of our beloved “fairy blue” bringing our brand to life in our office, mirrored shelving to showcase our great works, and a new table giving us the chance to gather around the table… literally!

A complete facelift wouldn’t be complete without every room… All that we had left was the loo! 

Jamie added some fur, vintage mirrors and new lighting to bring the room to its full potential!

Welcoming Explorer Travel & Tours! – Fairy Godmother Friday

The “Happiest Place in Bakersfield” has grown, again!

We are so excited to share that Leland and Pamela of Explorer Travel and Tours have joined us as our final tenants of the 20th Street Cottage community room, designed by Jamie Urner Interior Designs!

The purpose of a community room is to allow professionals the comfort of an office, without paying the office price.

These rooms are shared space that is there when they need them without trying to have a conversation over blenders, the normalities of a coffee shop, or other little nuances that may arise in public space.

Leland and his gorgeous wife Pamela branched out of their daily lives to create something different. Leland being a professional firefighter and Pamela, a college professor, started Explorer Travel and Tours

Leland hasn’t always been one of Bakersfield’s premier travel agents. In fact, Leland is one of Bakersfield’s lead fire engineers! 

In addition to being successful, and generous, business owners, Leland and Pamela are incredibly active with their family! Taking trips and sharing experiences with their loved ones is a top priority.

Courtney first caught the eye of Fairy Godmother Colleen in 2013 at a wedding she was coordinating. The Fairies have a keen eye for detail, so you know that we thought she was THAT good!

GhilaDoci Bakery was a dream come true for Courtney after getting her degree in business economics, and after attending Le Cordon Bleu in Southern California. Growing up in an Italian family meant that cooking and baking were in Courtney’s blood! She helped her Mom and Nonna create yummy treats like biscotti and pies, which aided in her great love for food!
