A couple from Toronto transformed a regular cottage into a colorful, eclectic haven on Stoney Lake, on the eastern end of the Kawartha lakes region in Ontario, Canada. The original home was torn down and replaced with a new build that was efficiently designed for usage year-round. The property is an elevated, flat granite shelf with mature trees on a small, calm bay. The owners envisioned a tree house-like dwelling, simple yet authentic with soaring ceilings and plenty of natural light. The interiors are brimming with character, thanks to some clever handy work by the homeowners who are a network engineer and a marketing executive. In the living room, the goal was to bring the outdoors in with a wall of windows and natural furniture elements. Slip covered sofa adds a relaxed, comfortable feel to the space, mixed with a coffee table the homeowners designed themselves, comprised of hemlock. A hide rug and mid-century chairs adds a contemporary air to the space. An additonal natural feature in the space is a birch branch chandelier, a stunning focal point that was also devised by the creative couple. Furnishings have a very collected yet rustic aesthetic. The finished result is relaxed cottage living, perfect for entertaining guests and enjoying nature and leaving the hustle and bustle of city life behind. Is this the type of vacation home you could spend some time in? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below, we love your feedback!

A striking contemporary loft has been elegantly updated for a family with three young children by Ben Herzog Architect, located in Tribeca, New York. Comprised of 2,200 square feet of living space, this three bedroom apartment needed to be re-configured and given a fresh makeover. The clients requested that the home have a child proof design by day, yet bestow an elegant aesthetic during the evening hours. Interior designer Keven Dumais was called into action to infuse warmth, color and texture to the home. The design duo worked together to reconfigure spaces to create a more livable footprint. The kitchen was re-designed, closet re-shaped, a full bath was turned into a powder room to allow a more spacious laundry room and the HVAC was redirected into the ceiling. Notable finishes were added to the interiors, such as wide plank oak flooring and custom built-in cabinetry. The kitchen was a major overhaul, receiving a brand new built-in bar, a fully landscaped terrace that travels the length of the loft, a center island with a breakfast bar and tons of storage. A notable design feature is the breakfast nook, showcasing a built-in banquette with floor-to-ceiling bleached walnut paneling, which helps to conceal a flat screen TV. The apartment has a predominantly neutral color palette, which has worked well to create modern interiors with the warmth a traditional design aesthetic.

This stunning triplex home hovers over the Barcelona, Spain skyline, renovated by interior designer Bruno Reymond, owner of the shop La Maison de l’Elephant. The designer’s shop is situated in Ibiza, and he designed this striking vacation home to live off season. When he purchased the home, it was uninhabited and had not been renovated for the past twenty years. The interiors were very compartmentalized and in need of being open up and letting natural light penetrate the spaces. Spread out over three levels, the designer let his imagination run wild, creating bold and stylish interiors that are an eclectic mix of styles. Over the course of the renovation, walls were torn down to create generous living surfaces with four bedrooms.
The elephant head at the entrance to the home is a lacquered bronze with automotive paint, symbolizing the identity of the store La Maison de l’Elephant. Welcoming you into the home is a Swedish chair and a console table from 1971. We love the glossy wood flooring against the monochromatic color scheme of black and white with pops of yellow and red used sparsely. A very cool pad, perfect for a bachelor, what do you think?
