This Lakeside Country House Is The Epitome Of Comfort

Perched atop a bluff overlooking Lake Memphremagog, this country house in Magog, Quebec, has a sense of luxury and polish that feels updated, but not trendy. Montreal-based designers Alexandre Blazys and Benoit Gérard, of Blazys Gérard, painted, styled and swapped out most of the original light fixtures and kitchen components, and balanced the scale of the 10,000-square-foot house with intimate seating areas loaded with snug textures. The refreshed scheme is still formal and elegant, yet comfortable — a hat trick that’s often hard to pull off in a large house. Click through to see inside the space.
