See Inside A Small & Serene Mountain Retreat

Soft ocean breezes, lush greenery and mountains dotting the horizon — designer Carrie McCarthy’s small family cottage has all the perks of a tropical isle, but is located on B.C.’s Pender Island, known as the Hawaii of Canada for its mild sub-Mediterranean climate. The 830-square-foot cottage was designed using local materials and tradespeople, and has a surprisingly minimalist interior, almost Scandinavian in its restrained white palette and simple but luxurious materials. Sit back, relax and click through to see inside the serene space.
