A Tiny & Colorful 250-Square-Foot Cottage Bunkie

Inspired by its stunning surrounding landscape, this small cottage bunkie in Lake Muskoka is decorated in a soothing palette of blue, green and brown. “You embrace the environment and the view out the windows and go with that,” says designer James Davie. With the shell already constructed, and plumbing and electrical roughed in, James got to work applying the finishing layers. Offsetting custom designs with big-box-store steals and vintage pieces kept the project on budget, ensuring the bunkie was ready for all the sandy feet, wet bathing suits and sticky s’mores fingers summer has to offer.
