Call it kismet, serendipity or mere coincidence that I spotted this gorgeous hilltop cabin in Nova Scotia on the New York Times yesterday. I’ve been semi-planning a road trip (it’s adventurous having no plan!) for my upcoming vacation and just last week decided Maine’s Canadian island neighbor would be the goal. But what’s to see in Nova Scotia?
Hopefully if the aesthetic of rest of the island is anything like this cabin, there will be plenty of good design to take in. The weather-worn shingles are right at home on the windswept coast. The owners, cognizant of the intense light bouncing off the sea, chose a white stain for their wood floors and a palette of muted pastels all of which combine with an enchanting effect in the wide open spaces. Check out the full-sized images on The Times, they’re worth the look. Just don’t blame me if you suddenly want to come to Nova Scotia, too.
