A revisit of 660 County Route 7

A couple of years ago I featured the 1850's cottage of Brooklyn design studio Workstead (I am obsessed with their lighting). It seems they have put this adorable dwelling on the market and the listing broker sent us a link. This would be my dream summer getaway.
Elegantly simple, this 1850s eyebrow colonial in Gallatin, with private river frontage on the Roeliff Jansen Kill, is truly unique. Wake up to a river view from the master bedroom and then fish, kayak, swim or canoe on the Class A trout stream right on your property. Wonderful details abound throughout this 19th Century farmhand's cottage, such as original wide plank floors, custom light fixtures, and a sunny deck right off the dining room. Mature trees, perennial plantings and a large lawn surround the house, providing both privacy and a feeling of openness. The cottage is an ideal retreat from city life, yet is close to many charming Hudson Valley towns. Conveniently located 2 hours from NYC, 5 minutes from the Taconic, and less than 25 minutes to Hudson, Millerton & Rhinebeck.

Jacky Winter Gardens

As cute as a button inside and out. Melbourne, Victoria, Australia guesthouse renovations and interior design by Hearth Studio. To note: I love how they painted over the trim a couple of inches in some rooms and a couple of feet above it in others. A creative and very simple idea to painting a space without really painting a space. (Photos: Sean Fennessy, and more details here).

A summer cottage in Denmark

I am back with more monochromatic design but this one I could not resist. This summer cottage in Skagen, Denmark by architecture firm Ardess. The exterior in weathered cedar has such gorgeous tones of grey, and the wood interior is just as breathtaking. The amazing thing about this cottage is it is under 600 sq ft and was designed to accommodate 2 families. I know there would be fighting over who gets each summer weekend if this was in my family!

A Muskoka cottage

The perfect getaway in the Muskokas for summer or winter, by Toronto-based interior design firm Timothy Johnson Design. A lighthearted approach was taken when renovating and decorating this quaint cottage on the water's edge. A complete overhaul of the kitchen and bath allowed for the addition of modern amenities. The rustic living areas were enhanced with plush, custom furnishings and vintage pieces to create a warm, laid-back setting.

Maison nordique-boréale

Because my trip to Mexico is not for another 3 weeks. Because I hate winter more than anything else. Because I love featuring talented Canadians. This cabin in the woods in Sainte-Adèle, Québec was designed by Appareil Architecture and is a great distraction from the current weather here in Ottawa. This home is exactly what bringing the outside in is all about. A cabin that is simple and warm and functional. What a little dreamy oasis in the country.
