Rustic Cottage Living Room

Cosy chairs and simple lamps create symmetry in this open space.

The living and dining room of this Muskoka cottage share a two-sided stone fireplace, a bold but organic focal point. "We wanted it to look like it's been here forever," says the home's designer, Andrea Crawford. The model sailboat on the mantel is in keeping with the casual tone.
