The Princess Margaret Welcome Home Sweepstakes Showhome

Earlier this week I had the opportunity to join the Princess Margaret Welcome Home Sweepstakes Showhome contributor launch.

If you’ve been following Desire to Decorate for a while, you already know love symmetry, so this house got me from the outside! Love it!

This year’s showhome was indeed different. It was the first time interior designer Brian Gluckstein, and his design team, held the position of leading the design process for the house. And, true to Brian’s signature style, the house had a mix traditional and modern elements grounded by a neutral colour palette. This showhome radiates the ultimate entertaining home surrounded by glamorous d├ęcor. And of course, the design execution wouldn’t be possible if not for the work of home builder PCM Project and Construction Management.

Starting with the front entry. Almost reminiscent of the hotel lobby.

The first door to the left… the library.

The one trend I noticed immediately was the millwork, trim and baseboards were all painted the same colour. The crown moulding was the only detail painted white as were most of the ceilings.

… special highlights for two of my Juice Marketing Group clients… the drapery sheers are from JF Fabrics and the artwork is from Cocoon Furnishings.

Another shout out for JF Fabrics!!! So thrilled to see such a great representation of JF Fabrics through out the entire house!!!PMWHS-Showhome-via Desire to Decorate

The upper level hallway. I have a thing for hallways, my house is open concept so we don’t really have any. And, I absolutely love the display terrariums.PMWHS-Showhome-Upperlevel Hallway via Desire to Decorate

The guest bedroom. If I recall correctly, each bedroom has a bathroom.PMWHS-Showhome-guest

The library from the upper level. The wallpaper is reminiscent of one available at JF Fabrics

The master bath was spectacular.PMWHSShowhome-Master Bath via Desire to Decorate


Back downstairs… the dining room. Yes, that's me taking the photo!


Onwards to… the kitchen.PMWHS-Showhome-kitchen


Adjacent to the kitchen was the family room. I love the contemporary art wall display camouflaging the TV in the family room.

Moving to the lower level. As soon as you come downstairs, you’re greeted with the workout room! Wonder how many times I would walk right on by? Ha!PMWHS-Showhome-Gym via Desire to Decorate

The laundry room is right after the workout room… avoiding these areas although would be me.PMWHS-Showhome-Laundry via Desire to Decorate

I would likely carry onwards to the recreation TV area. And, of course there’s another bedroom with bath, bar area and wine cellar. PMWHS-Showhome-basement

The landscaping in the backyard was simple yet fabulous for entertaining.PMWHS-Showhome-Backyard via Desire to Decorate

It's beautiful but it's not very warm & inviting. Love the trim details.
Wendy Hicken said…
I think the entryway gives that impression, but nothing normal family living can't change.
Julie said…

Tim@DesignMaze said…
love it! can't wait to see it in person next week. Thanks for the sneak peek Wendy!

Apart from the awesome decoration stuff, one thing that made me very pleasant is the storage ideas that you have used to make the home spacious and clutter free. Really awesome !!
Joyie said…
everything was great! from the interiors, furnitures, fixtures and everything put inside was just amazing. the lighting effect also feels so relaxing. great job to all!
Kelly Mudry said…
not my cup of tea. A home should be warm, inviting and PERSONAL, not like walking into a hotel lobby. I can appreciate the design but I sure don't like it
Oh my goodness! That laundry room! That bathroom vanity! Wow wow wow!! I agree with Kelly, it's a bit hotel-like, but no one lives there yet! Give the house two months with a family and it will be a home. :)
