A Peek at The FABulous Princess Margaret Showhome

Last week I had the pleasure of attending a blogger preview of the Princess Margaret Showhome in Oakville. Designed by Lynda Reeves and her team the home has a modern yet rustic feel to it.

The stone exterior flanked by board and batten siding give nod to the history of the neighbourhood while the dark grey siding and black windows and doors add a flair of modern elegance to the home. I have been obsessed with black windows lately so I was drooling before even entering the house!

The landscaping creates the feel of a country estate with a pergola connecting the garage to the main house and paver stones laid to create a patio in the back garden.

The house has an open feel to it as one room flows easily to the next. Every detail is carefully curated. Be it how a room was accessorized, the finishing details on the furniture or the tile detail in the bathrooms every element worked together to create a home that is open, bright and calm.

One of the standout features for me of the Showhome was the ceramic work in the bathrooms. The tile was in keeping with the neutral, calm colour scheme but utilized pattern, texture and scale to impress. I’m a huge sucker for a herringbone pattern and it was used in several applications.

The kitchen was full of marble goodness.

I loved the shelving nook for firewood. Decorative and functional.

I was dying to get my inner Ohmmm on in this yoga room!

There were so many wonderful details to absorb. The Showhome is now open to the public and I highly recommend checking it out. Many thanks to the House & Home team for inviting me!

And, while you are at it buy a ticket to the Princess Margaret Sweepstakes – Help Conquer Cancer in our lifetime!
