Almost every room features incredible panoramic views of the water, so Cameron kept a consistent color palette to let the natural landscape shine through. Soft shades of blue and white blanket the interior with a fresh and airy feel. To juxtapose the classic hues, Cameron opted for rustic reclaimed wood floors. In addition to the home’s modern amenities, the main living room features a gorgeous wood-burning fireplace, making the Ontario cabin the perfect all-season escape.
