The Showhome Is Open!

The Princess Margaret Welcome Home Sweepstakes Oakville Showhome officially opened to the public September 11, and the verdict is in: people are loving the stunning, Hamptons-inspired space.

Drawing from Diane Keaton’s beach house in the movie Something’s Gotta Give, Lynda Reeves and the House & Home design team have created a space with classic touches such as a big front porch, wood-shingled exterior walls, big windows and spacious, detailed interior rooms.

More than 50,000 design enthusiasts flocked to the 2009 grand prize showhome to see our new take on Belgian farmhouse style, and this year’s house is no less spectacular. Take a sneak peek at the great room, above; don’t you just want to move right in?

Visit the showhome during our open house hours, and sign up for the last available free seminar at the house. It’s a DIY seminar with H&H style gurus Michael Penney and Joel Bray, so don’t miss your chance to see these masters at work! While you’re at the house, be sure to take a picture of yourself in your favourite room — you can upload it into your virtual House & Home cover gallery to share with your friends!

The kitchen in this year’s showhome is a stunner. Creative services associate Peter Paquette is standing next to the Viking range, one of the highlights of the kitchen.

Last year’s sweepstakes sold out, helping to raise over $6 million for cancer research at The Princess Margaret, one of the top five cancer research centres in the world. Don’t miss your chance to win this gorgeous showhome and other great prizes! Order your tickets today and help end cancer in our lifetime.
