Architect Christopher Spraggett 's well-designated Muskoka shop is loaded up with covetable furnishings, lighting and adornments, yet the vast majority see the f loor first. "It would appear that a hand-painted f loor, yet it's really shrouded in eight-by 10-foot printed vinyl oilcloth f loor mats," says Christopher. "I purchased a bundle and masterminded them together; it's progressively down to earth for individuals coming in with wet shoes." His innovative methodology makes Lock + Quay a rich hotspot for cabin style that is definitely not antique. The 900-square-foot store's different accumulation incorporates natural teak seats, mod lights and stout woven containers, all in natural tones reminiscent of sand, stone and water. "I lean toward surface and tone before shading," he says. The previous summer, Christopher moved the shop to its flow area on the second f loor of a 100-year-old structure on the water. The wide, swinging doors and chain pulleys notice back to the structure's past life as the celebrated wooden boatbuilder Dukes, improving the genuine cabin vibe. After Labor Day weekend, Lock + Quay will close for winter, yet Christopher will remain caught up with sourcing crisp searches for the following summer.
