Louis Cote has spent decades dressing clients from around the world in fur. A trusted stylist, Louis makes sure his clients stay warm, cosy and looking fabulous all winter long. Fashion and interior design go hand in hand. While working at Holt Renfrew and Hudson’s Bay Company, Louis also studied interior design at The International Academy of Design. He has curated homes in Toronto, across Ontario and as far away as California. Louis’s partner Jack Cantwell, an oil and gas executive, sold a Grand Victorian home in Petrolia, west of London, Ontario, and purchased a four-season weekend home at Admiral’s Gate in Collingwood, giving Louis free reign on the interior design.
 
"The original design choices and finishes worked, especially the classic millwork and original mouldings," says Louis. "I added contrast with paint, especially in the kitchen where we had the cabinets and island refinished by Cabneato in Benjamin Moore’s heritage colours. I also updated the fireplace and added new lighting." The home shows off art by local artists, including Sheila Fox and Heather Cook (Butter Gallery).
