Cordial House – Styling and Wellness Retreat

Cordial House – Styling and Wellness Retreat

I am so so excited to share some information about the styling and Wellness Retreat my friend Alessandra and I are hosting at my favourite place, Cordial House. The retreat will be happening over the long weekend and in May and we are thrilled to be able to share all the details with you know.

Join interior designer Christine Dovey and stylist/art dealer Alessandra Salituri for an unforgettable three-day design and wellness retreat in beautiful Prince Edward Island (PEI).

Canada’s smallest province, PEI is a charming, slow-paced haven off the eastern coast of Canada. Home to Anne of Green Gables, the island is known for its seaside villages, farmhouses, red sandstone cliffs, green pastures and stunning beaches. The Maritime province has garnered a reputation as a farm and ocean-to-table culinary destination, where the local people are warm and inviting. Interior designer Christine Dovey recently returned to her roots, after spending summers here visiting family, and renovated a cottage she named Cordial House, overlooking the red sand shores.

The retreat is a special opportunity to learn the basics of instagram photography, interior styling, and floral/tabletop design at Christine’s cozy beachside cottage. Over the course of three days, you will have the opportunity to learn about creating  distinct interiors that reflect who you are, and explore the principles of decorating a home, and entertaining in style.

The retreat will also have a relaxation and wellness component, as well as an opportunity to explore hidden gems and the special local experiences PEI has to offer. This includes a workshop hosted by a PEI naturopath on cultivating wellness in your space/detoxifying your home, trips to the stunning beaches of the north shore, a yoga class in the most pastural of settings, and visits to our favourite antique shops.

And then the food! Guests will enjoy delicious catered meals at Cordial House along with a special lunch at historic Dalvay by the Sea and dinners at cult favourites Blue Mussel Cafe and The Table.

Learn about styling, and enjoy a relaxing getaway in a beautiful environment. This retreat is open to everyone, with no prerequisites or experience in design/styling necessary. Anyone who has a passion and interest in decor, is looking for a potential career change, or simply wants an opportunity to explore beautiful PEI, is welcome!

I mean fun right!??!?!?!?!

So to recap…3/4 days spent at this place…
