Relaxing and sitting on the Muskoka chair on the dock, looking at the view of Lake Rousseau.

Hi! I am Pamela, the Publisher of the blog, The Style and Travel Journals. I am grateful to Maria for this collaboration of Guest Posting in her Inspirational blog.

Summer is almost ending.  I was in the Muskoka Lake District the past weekend to have  a vacation, to go swimming and just relaxing. The Muskoka Lake District is north of Toronto, Canada. The Muskokas is composed of the Lake Muskoka, Lake Rousseau and Lake Joseph. There are numerous smaller lakes surrounding this area.

In these Lakes are traditional Canadian cottages and there are multi-million dollar cottages with their large boathouses. The picture above with the dock and traditional Muskoka chairs is a perfect place to relax, to daydream and just enjoy the view.

When I was in Muskoka, I just felt to slow down, to relax, enjoy the water and most of the time just fell asleep.  I love going here in Muskoka during summer.  It is a perfect place to hangout for a lazy day in summer. Where do you go and what do you do to enjoy a lazy day in summer?

Pablo Picasso’s painting “The Bathers” painted in 1918 is a perfect picture to describe a lazy day of summer.

Relax in the Chaise Lounge with a book and a cool drink plus enjoy the Lake view.


Enjoy the rest of summer!


Within interior design, I love the combination of old and new, a marriage of history and modernism, romanticism meeting minimalism. In addition, I have a burning passion for crispy silks, dark chocolate and long baths with a fragrance of lavender.


  1. oh I’d like so bad to be there Maria! what an amazing place!!! Kisses and have a nice day dear!

  2. I love this! Summer always has me really lethargic, but lakes and beach houses and things are so refreshing. All those blues and greens. :)

  3. Such a lovely place for the summer vacation! I think most of all I like one-day trips in summertime. Just take a day off, get in the car and drive to a wonderful place, like a lake, a secluded little town, to the seaside or in the mountains and simply change the pace and enjoy the day.

  4. Oh.. I want summer… always, all the year! Sweet photos and lovely light.. Kisses, my friend! Have a great evening!

  5. I wish summer never stopped. :-) I hope everything is ok with you! Enjoy your evening Maria!
    Much love, Inge x
