You’ll love this quaint Québec retreat.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Light foliage wraps around the mezzanine’s railing, offering an ethereal touch of seasonal colour.
This eye-catching centerpiece is simple and seasonal with berries clinging to branches placed in a white water pitcher.
