“When you look at the living room’s gallery wall, it’s very much the Kimsas,” says Stephan. Featuring the kids’ artwork and family photos that were resined or framed, it’s a resolutely personal display. Stephan also added some interesting bird images that are echoed in the collection of owl sculptures and the blue jay toss cushion.

The deft balance of past and present is not the only trait all the rooms share. "Colour is very important here," says Stephen. "A cottage allows us to explore some interesting shades." The chosen colour palette exudes vibrancy, from turquoise to yellow to kelly green.

In the dining area, wooden beams mimic the original kitchen ceiling. Intentionally mismatched furniture feels like it was collected over time.
