Contemporary upgrades and expert use of texture bring the Riverdale residence in Muskoka, Ontario a step above the typical lakehouse aesthetic. Shiplap and board and batten exteriors call to mind classic waterfront homes while our Cape Cod White Oak and Dover European Oak add subtle colour to the crisp white on white interior. The warmth and versatility of our Dover wide plank shines as a ceiling and range hood treatment, while the 9 inch Cape Cod channels the mood of its namesake. With tones that mirror weathered fences and pale sandy beaches, our white oak flooring and stair treads ground the airy space and keep it close to its waterfront roots. Designed by Muskoka Living, Riverdale’s furniture feels like summer whites in soft, lived-in linens and easy wearing slipcovers. The rustic doors and rooms punctuated by rope and polished brass details nod to the nautical without shouting it out. Muskoka Living’s casual, coastal flare and custom furnishings elevate the classic lakehouse, building on tradition with refined updates.
