Drake Devonshire Inn

Wellington, Ontario
Design: John Tong (+Tongtong)

An interior porch capped by tongue-and-groove board ceiling, a sleeping area tucked under Douglas fir rafters, and an ensuite kept private by clever latticework partitions: The Owner’s Suite is a deceptively simple A-frame loft made functional, thanks to smart separation of space. John Tong, the Toronto-based designer whose work has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale and MoMA, is also behind the custom-made rustic-retro furniture. Curl up under the gables in the low-lying beanbag chairs and enjoy the floor-to-ceiling views of the turquoise waters of Lake Ontario.

Unusual shape to the room but very laid back and homely. The high sloping ceiling allows for large windows and plenty of natural light to enter. The warm pendant and side lighting tends to bring the room alive.
