Christmas Gift Guide

The house. Intro to the Great Room

When Dan and I first started designing this house- the one thing that we could agree on was that we wanted a very open concept first floor with high ceilings so we could have a big big big Christmas Tree.  Originally we had wanted to have all bedrooms downstairs, but then changed our minds.
The main floor of our new home is an open concept great room/kitchen with the master bed/bath/closet off to the side.  On the other side of the room you'll find the mudroom/laundry and a pocket bathroom.
One week in and I wouldn't change a thing about this layout.  I love everything about it.  Some of my favourite elements are the crystal chandeliers that reflect the light in the most beautiful way at sundown.  I tried capturing it for it.
There are a couple of elements still missing that will be complete in the next bit- the mantel for the fireplace and a replacement front door stained the same colour as our garage door.
All in all- this is my favourite place in the house.
That is until I show you the master suite....
