Turning Tricks in The Cottage Master Bedroom

Colin & Justin | Posted 05.22.2015 | Canada Living

Why, pray tell, are many of the cottages we visit so much less like wilderness cabins (visually and ergonomically) and more like suburban bungalows? Consider our own formerly nervous wreck. Step indoors, and it might very well have occupied a street in any suburban sprawl.

Transforming a Cottage Rodent Infestation Into a Stunning Guest Bedroom

We're not gonna lie: our guest room, as we found it, was more like a petting zoo -- for unwanted critters -- than a potentially indulgent space for our friends to relax. Cue a weekend long clean up, gallons of bleach, miles of new drywall, acres of replacement plasterboard and a careful construction plan.

Building Our Cottage Snowroom...I Mean, Sunroom

OK -- we're gonna say this right here, right now. Canadians are obsessed with the weather. So imagine the ensuing delight when our allotted timetable to build a sunroom looked like it might somehow align with a period of bright, sunny early fall weather. But then Mother Nature timed her first SNOWFALL of the year to perfectly coincide with our reveal...

Maximize Space and Style in a Cramped Cottage Bathroom

Consider, if you will, this bathroom: a veritable den of designer no no's. An ergonomic, stylistic and visual wash out, with little in its favour, it desperately needed to change. Petite? To the power of ten. Carpet? The devil's own harbinger of human excretions, toe nails and mouse poop. Are we painting a picture?

Our game of homes and Bunkies...

Blimey! For the love of the holy paint chart: we've been run off our feet, of late. But that's good -- operating at full tilt is just how we like it. ...

Creating the Perfect Deck and Landscape

Colin & Justin | Posted 04.10.2015 | Canada Style
Colin & Justin

A really good deck doesn't stop at the luxuriant lumber from which it is constructed. To bring any deck (patio or terrace) alive it needs subsequent "layers." In precisely the same manner in which décor and accessories will alternate interior "beat," so too can visual and physical tricks make your exterior scheme look "considered."

Facelifting A Cottage

Sometimes a spot of decorative Botox simply isn't enough. Cue a full facelift, and some grand scale reconstructive surgery, say cottage-style surgeons...

Colin and Justin Deal With Total Dock Shock

Aware we'd chosen a cabin with more bad points than good, we hoped that somehow, just somehow, the dock we'd inherited as part of our chattels would be in better condition than it was. But no. It was rotten to the core.

Colin and Justin Take on a Slanty Shanty

Colin & Justin

Four months of extreme nail biting. The appraisal of several hundred pages of property details and appointments to view perhaps 45 cottages. Yup, the search for a new cabin was arduous. Just as we were about to throw in the towel, Rob emailed one last prospect: a 1980s A-frame. But it was clearly a bag of problems...

There is nothing I love more than a good pair of sweats. Even better, if I can make my sweats look fashionable enough to wear them out, go shopping and run errands in them!

Everyone deserves to have a day to feel special. Luxury can be associated with expensive outings, taste and experiences; however it can also be inspired by a sense of self worth and the way people make us feel. A life of luxury may seem out of your reach; but money isn't the only way to make you feel like you are worth thousands.

A Recipe For Perfect Kitchen Style

Think first about how your dream kitchen needs to perform. More than simply somewhere to rustle up a delicious Chicken Parm', the kitchen, nowadays, is a meeting and chattering space where social intercourse occurs. It's also, potentially, a community centre for local kids, a homework station or just somewhere to enjoy a cuppa with friends while gossiping about life and love.

One future. So let's make the best of it, huh? We've long since championed this mantra and, whilst appreciative of regular Canadian furniture outlets, we reserve space in our creative veins for reclamation outlets and salvage yards. Aye, we love to mix past and present.

We've long since opined that festive décor should enhance existing home style rather than smother it, so our 'less is more' mantra is currently extra potent. To provide direction, here are three looks -- Past, Present and Future -- arranged, for your style hungry delectation, using our very own Toronto condo as backdrop.
