WISH Wednesday #46

Do you see the view out the window of this adorable bedroom - that is Cape Breton Island (Nova Scotia) - one of the most beautiful spots in the world.  When you read this I will be down in Nova Scotia myself, so this bedroom seemed a perfect choice for my WISH Wednesday photo.  Kate goes to university in Halifax, Nova Scotia and will be sharing a house with two other girls this year rather than staying in residence.  I'm helping her get her room set up - you know - visiting thrift shops etc to find furniture and getting a big load of groceries. We are going to squeeze in a little sightseeing as well. I love Nova Scotia so I'm really looking forward to my week there.

This house was built as a family vacation home. The whole home has a spare, clean, modern look. I'm not usually a fan of modern as it can look stark and cold, but I find this home very appealing in its simplicity.  You can see more photos here.

I think the children's bedroom is one of my favourite rooms with the similar, but different Indian quilts on the bed, painted floors, and soft gray walls with white trim ... oh, and a breath-taking view out the windows.

The outside of the house is also stark and modern, yet echoes the cedar-shingled traditional homes of the area.

I'll be back from the maritimes next week and I'll show you pictures of what we visit.  I'm not going to Cape Breton Island, but I know that I'll be taking a bazillion photos of the areas we do see.

Pin It


  1. Cape Breton Island is one of my favourite places ever. I visited the summer before my last year of my undergrad and was just in awe the whole time.

  2. Wow! What a perfect place. Another to add to my 'must see' list.

  3. Oh love that home, such nice colours really relaxing and calming. Thanks for sharing

    All things nice...

  4. I love that view, it is spectacular, and the kid room is lovely.
    I clicked through to see the rest of the pics, and I agree that I'm not a fan of modern. Looking at that living room I thought "I need a sweater and blanket to sit in there" - way too cold for me. But pretty!

  5. I am so in love with that house! I can just imagine watching a storm from that deck. Awesome view! Kit

  6. I hope you enjoy your weekend in Nova Scotia, getting Kate settled, etc.... Great choice for WISH Wednesday. Wow, that view truly looks like a pretty!

  7. AMAZING! This is for my WISH Monday!

    Can't wait to hear about how everything went. The recipe book you made for Kate is so special. Well done.
