Island Escape Greatroom

The new owners of this serene water-access only Haliburton cottage asked us to turn the dark, dated summer cottage into a welcoming and harmonious cottage escape. Our starting point was getting rid of the makeshift heating system and its massive metal floor grate. We brought in all the materials and furnishings by barge, including beautiful dark pine flooring and a wood-burning fireplace. White paint and furnishings help shift the focus from inside to the outside. And seating was designed with entertaining in mind.
