Inspired Interiors

July 23, 2018

Cottage season is in full swing.  And while out west we tend to call summer homes cabins, in the east they’re known as cottages.  And some of the most spectacular cottages are found in Muskoka, on Georgian Bay off Lake Huron in Ontario. While I’ve never actually been and this summer is shaping up to be one of the busiest – work-wise – I thought I’d escape to the lake virtually with this weeks inspired interiors feature.

A stunning 7500 square foot home on it’s own island!  Designer Cory DeFrancisco wanted a contemporary take on traditional coastal living.  Despite antiques imported from Europe and original art from Los Angeles, this home maintains a casual comfort, the kind of space you’d want to walk around barefoot.

The muted walls, furnishings and accessories give the scenery center stage.  While mixing natural tones, textures and various eras keeps the home from falling flat.
