House tour: Casual contemporary cottage
The split-level design
Cedar panelling, fir beams and stone-coloured shingles ensure the split-level cottage design blends in with its natural surroundings.
Upper-level family room
The upper-level family room show cases the homeowners’ desire for modern style. The gas fireplace is fronted with slabs of natural limestone, which have clean lines that are echoed in the furnishings.
The dining room is a realization of the homeowners' vision: an open space with a neutral-toned room and views to the outdoors. The couple designed the large dining room table, which has a stainless steel base, and had the wooden dining chairs stained in a light tone for contrasting effect.
