Grand Country Principal Bedroom

The colour and texture of this house's aged materials create a cosy feel.

Nestled in the Niagara Escarpment, antique dealer Jill Kantelberg's country home is a stunning winter escape. Inspired by some of the homes she has visited in her travels through France, England and Belgium, her home is a cross between a great old barn and a country manor. The master bedroom is a luxurious retreat all in itself. With a limestone mantel and wide plank floors, every detail suits the room's rustic aesthetic. The raised fireplace allows Jill to put her feet up on the hearth and feel the warmth when sitting here. The English tester, or four-poster bed, was made from reclaimed linen-fold oak panelling.
