Can't wait to see what the H&H team has done with this year's Princess Margaret Welcome Home Sweepstakes showhome in Oakville? Lynda Reeves provides a glimpse into the 11-month process of designing, constructing, decorating and styling the lottery house. After all the great feedback from last year's Hamptons-inspired home, Lynda wanted to try her hand at another distinct style: casual yet elegant, rustic yet grand — inspired by Argentina's wine country. See all the gorgeous elements the H&H team chose, from a stucco exterior to french doors, wide-lever shutters to warm wood details, and mustard accents with pops of rust, white and taupe.
