Project Description

The Staycation, Peterborough, ON

This split level home contained 3 bedrooms and a bathroom on the upper level that just did not work for the owners as they looked to create their own unique space away from the rest of the home.

The vision was a master bedroom and ensuite space that this couple could retreat to and feel like they were away on vacation!

The palette was to be a mix of warm organic tones and textures mixed with bright crisp colours reminiscent of warm beaches and blue/green waters.

Here is the result!
