You’ll love this quaint Québec retreat.
A pop of classic countryside colour.
The exterior of the guest house is a welcoming shade of crimson. Decorated with greenery and a twig wreath, this lovely retreat is ready for the holidays.
An old cubby holds logs in a neat square that doubles as a side table.
This chimney is framed by wood beams and the windows are flanked by interior shutters. The homeowner also built a wood-and-metal frame where fireplace tools hang neatly from antlers — turning these utilitarian objects into a work of art.
The absence of upper cabinets creates a open, airy space.
Claire opted for discount cupboards, which she refinished herself to coordinate with the barn wood found throughout the room. Along the wall, pine branches peek out of maple syrup buckets, adding to the outdoorsy feel of the kitchen.
Little decoration is needed with such a spectacular vaulted ceiling.
This dining room table — made from an old platform used to haul tractors into the barn — is the perfect statement piece in this dreamy space. Abundant natural light bathes the room.
Two small trees potted in metal maple syrup canisters offer country-style cheer.
Originally, this guest house’s upper level was dark and cramped. The homeowners chose to create a loft-like space for the bedroom by removing half of the second floor. They recovered the walls with the barn wood they salvaged from the renovations for a textured, outdoorsy look.

White beadboard keeps this space bright.
Horizontal, vertical and diagonal lines play off each other, creating harmony in this quiet cottage-style space. A nature-inspired bedside vignette features a rustic handcrafted table and a sculptural branch lamp.
Decorate in unexpected areas.
Light foliage wraps around the mezzanine's railing, offering an ethereal touch of seasonal colour.
Layers of textured fabrics — a tablecloth, table runner and napkins — evoke laid-back luxury.
This eye-catching centerpiece is simple and seasonal with berries clinging to branches placed in a white water pitcher.
