Taking inspiration from the late winter maple forests of southern Ontario, galvanized sap buckets are fashioned into light shades and the color palette is a restrained one of cool grays and browns. Flashes of earthy green hint at the coming of spring while a diffused horizon line carried around the room separates the earth from the sky.
A warm, natural walnut bed frame and lathe turned side tables are nestled into a curved wall covered with white ceramic flowers. Lying in bed, guests are invited to trace the patterns of the abstracted tree silhouettes cut into the cabinet across the room. Lit by the soft light of a snowball ceiling fixture, “Sugar Bush” is an inviting retreat for weary travelers in any season.
