If you’ve ever dreamed of having a true country kitchen, you’ll love Lynda Reeves tour of the 2011 Princess Margaret Welcome Home Sweepstakes showhome. See the farmhouse-inspired kitchen with deep mustard-coloured cabinetry, edgy appliances and a rustic island made with salvaged barn wood. Continue through the servery and mudroom with gorgeous toile wallpaper and distressed furniture for added storage. Then, see the spacious garage with a wall storage system (which anyone with tools will appreciate), plus stainless steel cabinets and a handy sink.
