Getting Ready for the Cottage

Getting Ready for the Cottage

Canadians love long weekends, summer, and their cottages. With the May long weekend coming up, summer about to begin, and cottages waiting to be opened, it's the perfect time to turn our focus to summer essentials. 

We all know the importance of long weekends. It's our time to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and head to our cottages for quality time with friends and family. With warmer weather on the horizon, we're all looking forward to spending time outdoors, playing games, entertaining al fresco, and soaking up the sun.

Looking to freshen up your outdoor space at home or the cottage? We believe that good design should not only be beautiful but also practical. Elevate your summer style with some of these unique design items for the season. 



Lanterns are a great way to enhance your cottage experience and add ambiance. They are not only a source of light, but also create a cozy and romantic atmosphere.


Whether you choose to hang them from the ceiling, place them on the table, or line them along the path, lanterns can add a touch of warmth and charm to your rustic retreat. Lanterns come in different shapes, sizes, colours and materials, so you can find the ones that suit your style and mood.

One of the easiest ways to spruce up your cottage style is to add some outdoor rugs. Designed to withstand the elements, they can make your porch, patio, or deck more comfortable and inviting, while adding colour and pattern to your decor. 

Pappelina Rug

PAPPELINA RUGS are made in Sweden from high quality plastic that is durable, easy to clean, and eco-friendly. They come in a range of beautiful patterns and colours that can suit any cottage decor. Whether you need a rug for your living room, kitchen, bedroom, or porch, there is a size and pattern that's just right.
