Hi friends! Today we're recognizing Canada Day, and I'm sending a little appreciation to my readers to the North.  I've found a house with an attached lighthouse in Summerside, Prince Edward Island. (Anybody remember the book Cheaper by the Dozen and how they summered in a similar house?)

Take a look- it's cozy inside, and has the look of a summer rental.

Let's make it look like we're here to stay.

I wish I knew the source for this room.  I like how the colors are plentiful but balanced.  They make this room look collected over time and playful, just like it should look.

The dining room is in the L-shaped space with the living room.  

Isn't that cool how the fireplace stone wraps into the dining room?

Is that grass cloth wallpaper?  I like how it's a similar color to our hutch in the living room.

Upstairs, the master bedroom overlooks Frederick Cove.

I like this image so much, and the thought of it in a Canadian lighthouse just makes me happy.

Here's the bed side of the room:

Even FURTHER upstairs is an attic divided into two rooms.

There we go- secluded and cozy.  The views from up here must be wonderful.

I know I say this a lot, but this house is one of my favorites in terms of potential.
Hope you enjoyed exploring Summerside with me!

  1. Vicki,
    I'm with you, this is one of my favorites! That first colorful room reminds me of a Sarah Richardson room. I hear she has another series in the works. I hope so! The little water color of each house you feature sets the mood for the home, very nice.

    1. You're right- I can totally see Sarah mixing all of those patterns and having fun with it.
      Thanks for the heads-up about another series- I'll have to keep an eye out for it!

  2. Thanks for celebrating us, especially today on Canada Day! I love the touches of red throughout. Summerside , Prince Edward Island, is a jewel of a place. I have a feeling you would love it there!

    1. I bet I would love it, too. I confess I'd be a bit of an Anne of Green Gables tourist, but once I got that out of my system, I know I'd enjoy the area- it looks so pretty there.
