Open-Concept White Cottage

All-white beams make the ceiling appear high.

Heidi Smith's Laurentians, Quebec cottage is open and airy, and she made the most of the open-concept living space by assigning different corners different functions. Banquette seating in the corner allows a tighter fit for the dining table, while a separate seating area is the perfect spot to curl up with a book.
