Ange Dean of Land Studio East and Jamie Burnside of Herringbone Design Studio teamed up to design a contemporary take of a casual yet refined beachfront dining space that features reclaimed barnboard, custom furniture and plants reminiscent of sea grass.

“It was about taking regional Nova Scotia design and making it modern,” says Dean. Burnside designed and built the sleek curved sofa to help maximize space and “to have as many people as possible cozy in around the fireplace. The round seating encourages conversation,” she says.

Another highlight of the room was the rustic wall made of about 800 pieces of wood. Sailcloths overhead gave the space a light, coastal feel, as did the planters made of reclaimed larch (a local wood) and the tin fish made of recycled metal by artist Alanna Baird. Coastlight chef match was Sandy Cooley of Morris East.
