Last month saw the grand opening of Drake Devonshire, the rural offshoot of Toronto's ultra-hip Drake Hotel—and boy is it spectacular. Toronto-based design firms +tongtong and ERA Architects collaborated on transforming a 1880s foundry in Wellington, Canada into the brand new lakeside inn, combining influences from British country inns, Hamptons retreats, summer camps, and local farmhouses. No wonder the interior is a whimsical mix of vintage furniture, high-contrast tiles, patterned fabrics, and striking contemporary pieces.

Also prevalent are eye-catching artworks from a host of emerging and well-known artists, including a paper sculpture by Kirsten Hassenfeld and a mirrored typographic installation by Trevor Wheatley. Check out these 21 dazzling photos, a combination of promo shots from +tongtong and Instagram snapshots from lucky folks who've already gotten to scope the space out.
