Inside The 2019 Princess Margaret Showhome By Brian Gluckstein

Like the glamorous lead in a classic Hollywood film, this year’s Princess Margaret Home Lottery Showhome makes an alluring first impression: it greets you in a dramatic fashion and dazzles you with gorgeous looks, but is careful not to give away too much, too fast. The 6,700-square-foot home’s elegant main floor is revealed through a procession of grey-trimmed archways. “The house is quite open, but I didn’t want you to see everything as soon as you walk in,” says designer Brian Gluckstein. In design, as in the movies, a little mystery goes a long way.

Set on a corner lot in a leafy neighborhood of south Oakville, Ontario, the five-bedroom, two-storey house is loosely inspired by French Normandy style. In less than eight months, Brian expertly tempered the interior’s open layout by creating defined living spaces with purpose. “I want people to leave with ideas they can replicate at home,” he says.
