In my part of the woods (Ontario, Canada), each year, the Princess Margaret Hospital hosts a "Dream Home Lottery" to support cancer research.
There are a number of homes in the lottery and I had the opportunity to tour one of them. The house that I toured is worth $2.6 million and is located in Vaughan Ontario
As an aside (and this is for those of us who live in Ontario), can I just say that I have not been to Vaughan in ages and was astounded at how much it had grown...whatever happened to Canada's Wonderland being "out in the middle of nowhere"???
No stone was left unturned in the decorating department. However, what I really enjoyed the most about touring the home was some of the creative decorating ideas that could be used in any home (read CHEAP). I took some pictures of some these ideas and I thought I would share...
Now here is an interesting idea. These photos were on the wall in the children's playroom....
Now I know that this isn't the best shot of the photos...it is photos of children's shoes. Now this may look difficult but really how hard could it possibly be to take a million pictures of your kid's shoes until you get a few that are frame able? (don't answer that part) Then you would just need to Photoshop them (black and white with a touch of sepia)?? All I am saying is that it would be worth a try to find out!!
I like the pears all lined up in the cloches. Don't you just love the glass balls in the lamps!! So nice!!
The little girl's room looks so opulent.......
...but really, it is just pink stripes on the wall with some moulding. With a staple gun and some nice fabric, the fabric thing behind her bed would be soooo achievable (I am having a brain freeze and can not think of what it is called.
I just saw these scissors at Home Sense the other week and I am now wishing that I bought them!
