Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas
Posted in: Cottage


The interior designer Christine Fix Aunet has spent all of her summers in this place since she was born. The cottage, that once used to be an old and simple cabin, was bought by Christine’s grandparents in 1956. She inherited the cabin when she was only 14 y/o and has transformed it into a beautiful cottage since then. Now, she feels that has accomplished much more than only a place to spend her summers, but a place where generations of her family can come to spend time and build unforgettable memories by the sea.


Airy Cottage

She mixes old and new, expensive and cheap, and believes there must be a common thread in the mix.

Built By Hands

The kitchen was built by the interior designer while she was in college. There was not much money, but she used simple yet durable materials.


Christine is a collector and she brings to the cottage any antique she falls in love with.

Master Bedroom

Cozy and comfortable.

Kids’ Bedroom

White with a touch of blue. Just wonderful for any place by the water.

This post is truly inspiring me to take a stroll on the beach. Maybe that’s what I should do with the kids after lunch. After all, we all know that summers don’t last that long here in Canada.

I hope you also have a minute to do something you really want to during this day. How often do we take our days for granted, right? I try to keep reminding myself that every day is a gift given to us. Yes, I know we have to go through so many errands every single day, but if there’s a time of the year that we can just relax for a while, this is the perfect one. So try to enjoy your summer and I hope this “Cottage of the Week” inspires you to do that.

Have a Blessed day!

    I posted about beach style yesterday and I really love it. These cottages by the sea are always so dreamy! The more I see it the more I want! These are inspiring, indeed.

    Do you leave close to a beach?? I remember when I was a little kid that was my fave place to play…
    Hope you’re having a lovely week.

    Looks amazing, like the whites and splashes of blue in the bedroom. Also like the rustic feel of the living room because of that wood floor and the rustic-looking table and chairs.
