Last night I had the pleasure of visiting my future home in Oakville. I know, I never thought I would move to Oakville either, but when I saw this lovely home designed by Lynda Reeves, I was suddenly won over by suburban life. The funny thing is, I have never actually met Lynda, but she clearly designed the place with me in mind. The earthy neutrals, marble kitchen, linen drapes, and ethnic-inspired accessories were all right up my alley. The way she and her design team combined them with those large black modern doors and windows, the sleek floor-to-ceiling patio doors that fold open onto the terrace, and the exquisite landscaping clearly reflected my love of combining modern and well-worn aesthetics. I love that she gave me an AGA stove, although I have absolutely no idea how I will whip up my mac and cheese on it... No detail was overlooked in this place, and I really appreciate it Lynda.Renee's arm raw. She is an amazing good luck charm (just ask Aleksandra below, who won the massive 3D HD LG flatscreen tv just by standing next to her).
HERE, including the names of all the amazing suppliers who provided materials for the house pro bono and the design team that met needs I didn't even know I HAD until now (sadly, there is no going back...). There is a virtual tour online, but I really recommend going out to see it yourself. I mean, of course I'll have a house-warming party, but you should probably check it out sober too.
Thanks so much to the lovely folks at House & Home for the good time and blogger reunion. And the ride home - that was awesome too. :)
