Designer and artist Jay Hodgins shares how he transformed a dated property in Prince Edward County, Ontario, into a bright and airy country house ideal for entertaining. See how he used a combination of found objects, new items and reclaimed pieces to create the home of his dreams.

In the bright space, shades of grey, white and cream are accented with vibrant artwork, pillows and throws. A coffee table from the ’60s, which Jay found in a junk shop, centers the living room. The kitchen is designed around a vintage range he inherited from a client, and features plenty of seating options for friends to hang out. Jay also added a rustic wine cellar, converted a shed into a guest room, and created a large deck and screened-in porch surrounding the existing swimming pool.
