Rustic & Warm Living Room

A designer country house that's effortlessly artful and cosy.

Toronto designer Melody Duron's restored barn boasts a living room that eschews the trappings of "country cute", taking on a sophisticated-rustic look instead. All the stones that make up the commanding fireplace were found on the property. She installed new pine flooring, but the width of the planks and an oiled finish lend it a timeworn patina.
