This year I made the conscious decision to work through summer, I have a number of exciting projects slated and wanted to give myself permission to put everything else (think: travel, lazy afternoons spent on patios through out the city, and getting out to the mountains) on hold. I’d be lying if I said it hasn’t been challenging, but the fruits of my labour so to speak have been worth it and I have some amazing content and project reveals coming soon.
But until then, if like me you’re working through the summer, let’s live vicariously through this weeks Inspired Interiors feature, a stunning lake house on Ontario’s Lake Rosseau. Tunneling hallways covered in beadboard, a boathouse that is literally on the water and a colour palette that if you read last week’s Colour Crush post, you’ll know I love.
The wall of the stunning great room is covered nearly entirely in windows and oak ceiling beams draw your eye up, making the room feel even larger. Easy linen sofas in cream paired with a bold navy rug play perfectly together.
Although the kitchen is white, crisp and modern, the grain of the reclaimed-oak floors and the texture of brush strokes on the hand-painted cabinetry, keep it humble and feeling lived in.
There is something quintessentially lake living about a farmhouse table paired with linen slip covered chairs. The addition of two oversized lantern light fixtures creates a look that is casual elegance at it’s best.
In the master bedroom, shiplap walls and an upholstered bed in traditional fabric carry on the theme of causal elegance.
