When plan A (a glass and steel contemporary structure) and plan B (a repurposed church house with 50' ceilings) were not feasable on this windy hilltop in Cape Breton, Eliot and Alexandra Angle decided upon a simply marvellous barn-style cottage that is as fresh as the air around it. Take a look inside.....
As interior designers from Los Angeles, the Angles dressed the cottage in a natural palette inspired by the surrounding vegetation, berries, sea and sky. This clean and cool aesthetic is striking in their European styled kitchen.
There are plenty of windows in the living room adjacent to the kitchen to gaze upon the astounding views of the Gulf of St. Lawrence and Cape Breton Highlands National Park.
The glassy greens in the master bedroom are very peaceful tones. Local rug makers made the hooked rug that Alexandra designed, it was inspired by the local underwater plant life.
The darling children's room is beautiful inside and out.
This charming cottage certainly complements it's rugged and beautiful surroundings. Well done.
