A Scandinavian inspired Georgian Bay holiday home

It's so nice to be back at my desk (a table by the window in a café by the sea). I've missed my mornings in Malmö! Even so, today I'm going to escort all of us to the other side of the atlantic- specifically - Georgian Bay, Canada. This lovely Scandinavian inspired seaside cottage has been lovingly restored by Juli and John Baker, owners of Mjölk - a shop selling Scandinavian and Japanese design items. Juli inherited the space in 2004 and together with her husband, set about creating a dream holiday home in 2008. The original structure has been painted 'cloud white' and they've added fir plywood boards in the kitchen and bedrooms for a modern look. I love the pared-back, relaxed look and feel - perfect for wiling away long summer days, don't you think?

Juli and John Baker - Mjölk / Kitka

Could you spend your summer here?!

Some items I know and love: PH5 pendant light,  Dining space: Moooi two tops table, J77 dining chairs. Sitting room: Børge Mogensen sofa. Twin room: Hudson Bay Blankets (also seen in this home) and Luxo reading lights. Many of the items you see can also be found at Mjölk.

Is there anything you love in particular about Juli and John's bay side home?

More pictures of this home can be found here. I once showed their fab guesthouse here too - the couple clearly have an eye for design! 

If like me, you love the ocean I can highly recommend this beautiful limited edition sea print by Kara Rosenlund - it's become my favourite piece, and perfect if you live far from the coast.

Have a lovely day!
