Inspiration

We love this photograph taken by Christine Flynn of Toronto’s Love the Design, which was commissioned by a cottager who wanted to enjoy the lakeside view in his urban home. It’s easy to inject that cozy cottage style feeling – with a modern twist – into a bedroom with just a few key items.
