Shabby chic in Bracebridge

Introduce colour by painting the drawers 
of an old dresser in contrasting hues. 
Simply Cottage.
Make sure to stop in Bracebridge the next time you're heading south. This quaint little summer city in the heart of Muskoka, offers both beautiful views and interesting stores. Lovers of the shabby chic look will discover a mecca in Simply Cottage. Here you'll find a mix of casual cottage chic and Canadiana. Two floors are loaded with slip-covered sofas and chairs, heirloom pieces, painted wood furniture and funky accessories. Everything with tons of style! Another must on Bracebridge's main street (actually Manitoba Street) is Your Home Interiors. This store is filled with French-inspired antique-style furniture and home décor with lots of charm. Don't miss it! Check out some of the highlights from my explorations in Bracebridge.
Slip-covered dining chair in a pale,
light-blue shade at Simply Cottage. 
Look how well the slipcover works 
with the white table. Isn't the turned 
leg on the table absolutely gorgeous?
Here is the pale blue again, this time striped on a cozy
couch. Simply Cottage.
How unique; the top of this table resembles 
a flower. Simply Cottage.
These fun storage bags come in a wide
range of fabric options.
A new use for old board games: 
display a collection of them on the 
wall for a cheery pop of colour.

beautiful pics.

showstopper. Your Home Interiors.

A vignette filled with shapes; the chunky 
candleholders and sculptural vases contrast 
nicely with the more delicate table.
Shiny tin vases for some bling.
