I’ve always been a big supporter of the Princess Margaret Hospital Lottery and the Princess Margaret Show Home and I’ve just come back from the newest show home in Oakville. I must say this is my favourite one yet (and I have been through them all!). I was inspired by so many elements in this home, but if I had to pick 2 favourites, they would definitely be the bright and open conservatory and the grand staircase…
Shown in the next two pics is the conservatory which is a beautiful, wide-open space filled with natural light and floor to ceiling windows. The designers planted a live tree right in the floor which took a bit of planning and used up a little space from the basement, but it’s definitely worth it because the reflection in the adjacent mirrored wall is breathtaking. The skylight above and all of the natural light coming in will definitely help this tree remain in its current natural state of beauty and health. If I win this home, I’m most certainly setting up my office here!
I am also in love with the grand staircase surrounded by floor to ceiling windows and draperies. What a unique design element – so nice to see something other than traditional wood or wrought iron spindles. I’ve never seen a more stunning staircase combining such unique iron work and glass!
Well done Brian Gluckstein and his team!
