This serene spring fed pond is circled with large stones, mature trees and filled with lily pads. Located on 160 acres of majestic rolling Ontario hillside, this property offers spaces throughout that are beautifully maintained and professional landscaping.
Transform an ordinary wine/bar cart with pallet wood or any other aged wood you have on hand. Blogger Kelly Rinzema of The Lily Pad Cottage repurposed rotting wood from a dock to create this thoroughly chic wine storage cart.
Clean lines and stone finishes make this courtyard feel sophisticated while lily pads add a feeling of enchantment. Concrete pavers not only guide visitors to the front of the home, but also appear to be floating right over the lotus pond.

By simply changing the millwork, this entry and stair space got a huge refresh. Shiplap walls greet visitors to an immediate ‘by the water’ feel. That combined with the watery painting featuring bold turquoises and greens (that reminded designers of lily pads) drives home the coastal feel. A LED light in the glass ball on the newel post is set to a photocell - so it comes on each night when it gets dark!
