Contemporary Coastal-Style Living Room

A stone fireplace echoes the rocky hills and beach outside.

Once a local secret, Hirtle Beach now has some of the most coveted real estate in Nova Scotia. In this coastal home, designer Mimi Findley stained the hand-hewn spruce beams and floorboards the same hue to unify the barn-inspired space.
