summer cottage for the scrapbook

i truly enjoyed this article in canadian house and home this month. i mean, i don't know if i could live with so much white and wicker, but as a summer cottage, i love the tropical atmosphere and unique approach to decorating, using things that you wouldn't think would go together, such as baroque frames and 70's style fireplaces. but surprisingly it really works. and the idea of putting beach mats on the wall in the bath is making me want to go down to the dollar store right now and pick up 20. click on the images for close-ups.

Thanks for sharing this issue. I just read it yesterday. My post today will link my friends to your site. I just spent last weekend in Muskoka and the cottages are just gorgeous up there. Ahhhh..dreaming.
