Last weekend I was invited to attend a new writer’s retreat called reFRESH created by Lori Byrne from Farm Fresh Style. I love a good weekend away with friends but this one was to be held in Grand Étang in Cape Breton, which made me even more excited about it, because I hadn’t been to Cape Breton in more than 20 years!
We were very lucky to be hosted by Paula at her Airbnb La Belle Brise Maison. The Airbnb is located on the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton and is minutes away from incredible views and beaches not to mention delicious food and bakeries! Paula also owns La Brise Stained Glass Studio and makes some of the lovely stained glass art in the house.
We’re so grateful to her for hosting our retreat as it was the perfect location: quiet, artistic & colourful, comfortable, inspiring and oh so relaxing! There’s nothing like being right on the water. It calms and grounds you.
The decor in the house is very much ocean and fishing themed however it also has some very contemporary colours mixed in. The art in the house in incredible!
This colour combination and mixture of old and new created such a lovely combination of relaxation and creativity that it was perfect for our retreat.
It was a wonderful weekend of writing and relaxing. I’ll share more about that later!
