A Few of our Favourite Things

This holiday season we’re having fun re-gramming a few of our favourite things. In the weeks leading up to Christmas 2020, we’re re-posting items that caught our collective eye in Summer 2020. From art and food, to fashion and fun, all items are either made in Muskoka, or add to cottage life in a meaningful way.

Catch up with @MuskokaStyleMag on Instagram for ongoing inspo, or check back (regularly!) here.
