Native New Yorker and designer Anne Hepfer knows a thing or two about mastering coastal style. But when it came time to design her dream home, she went against the current — design-wise, that is. Hepfer chose Muskoka, or the “Canadian Hamptons,” to build her vacation house, and she outfitted it with rustic touches, all-white decor, and one-of-a-kind pieces from her travels. Check out the full tour on House Beautiful, then scroll down to steal decorating inspo from this stunning space to make your home feel like summer vacay in no time.


Hepfer’s home is filled with piece she’s collected on various adventures, like a hand-carved African stool and a Japanese coffee table. The items are eclectic, but the monochromatic palette keeps the space fresh and contemporary.

Copy Hepfer’s totally stylish living room with a rustic wooden table and white chairs. Add texture to your space with golden candles, a faux fur pouf, and elegant accessories, like a metal side table and woven storage baskets.

It’s all about outdoor living at this waterside home. Thanks to a constant flow of family and friends, her gorg deck is a stage for open-air brunches, reading marathons, swimming competitions, and lazy afternoon barbecues.

You don’t have to be near a lake to steal Hepfer’s cottage look. Start with white and gray wicker chairs and a statement pendant light. Bring in those breezy summer vibes with chevron towels, oars, and a white serving tray for boozy beverages.
