Muskoka Living Interiors in Port Carling is a mecca
when it comes to cottage style and modern rustic.
The next few photos are from the store.
I recently spent a hot, intense day in the area, taking in all the splendor of Muskoka cottage country - and the design style that goes with it.
Here are some shots from my trip.
Slipcovered chairs and white-painted
furniture rule. The style is relaxed, fresh
and summery. I like the fabric on this chair.
Here it is again on a pillow.
Inside the store - every inch is used to display
The store's impressive selection of rugs. Flatweave and
natural fibre dominate.
Driftwood is definitely part of the cottage style.
Here's a driftwood-framed mirror.
I've said it before: put it in a nice frame and anything can be art!
I'll try this with a vintage bathing suit that belonged to my grandmother.
Maps and sea charts make for interesting artwork.
Next stop in Port Carling: Peaks and Rafters - also well
worth a visit. The store has a nice mix of glamour and
rustic, lots of really nice art, and very unique light fixtures.
|Muskoka Cottage Emporium is another Port Carling|
design store. I especially liked the area downstairs.
Who can resist a barn full of antiques? This one
is on the way to Port Carling from Bracebridge,
on Regional Road 118 W.
