2019 Princess Margaret Show Home - A Few of My Favourite Details

It's that time of year again! The $6 Million Dollar Grand Prize Oakville Showhome is up for grabs, and I couldn't be more thrilled. As a Designer, I always get excited to see what Brian Gluckstein has come up with year after year. I love scanning each image, relishing in every detail most people wouldn't even notice. Gluckstein Design creates spaces where you lose yourself in imagining your new extravagant life, relaxing and enjoying these beautifully-designed rooms.


Today I'm going to share just a few of my favourite areas in the Oakville Showhome, and highlight some of the gorgeous design details that just cannot go unnoticed!


Stair Hall

This is a gallery wall-lovers dream! My black and white obsessed heart just sings when I see this photo. Each frame is meticulously placed on this curved, grandiose wall. I absolutely love the natural light pouring into this stairwell, an area that oftentimes gets neglected with light.

Contrast Door Trim

What an absolutely brilliant way to highlight each entry into every room. I love the high contrast between the walls and door trim, and I especially love how the baseboards and crown remained light. I really hope to see more of this detail, it's just so sophisticated.

A Great, Great Room

Let's be real here, I chose this space for its lack of colour. This whole room speaks to me. I'm a neutralist at heart and I am not afraid to admit that. I also adore the traditional paneling in conjunction with the sleek lines of the furniture, the separate conversation areas but also how he married the two spaces together with the same sofas for continuity.

Stepped Kitchen Island

These Dekton countertops are stunning. I love the simple stepped profile and of course the waterfall detail on the sides. The table-height eating area is a little unexpected twist, and makes the island a little more visually appealing rather than one big piece of stone. This is such a smart way to incorporate Kitchen dining without a physical table impeding on the space.

Principal Bathroom

This Master Ensuite has such an understated quality to it, while still packing a lot of style. The added texture of the vanity doors, the interesting tile inlay, the stone picture ledge and of course, those stunning mirrored closets just reflect all the beauty of this space. The decorating & styling of this Bathroom is simplistic yet significant all at the same time.

An In-Home Spa Retreat It's not every day when you can say you're going downstairs to your Spa. But in this home, you can. Situated off the Home Gym, this space is a retreat like no other. Whether you hire a private masseuse, or simply use this space to hide from your children, this is an area of the showhome that is truly so unique.


And lastly. a spa isn't complete without a full steam shower, sauna and an Ensuite which is larger than most Toronto single bedroom condos. I love the curbless design, which allows the floor tile to run right through both the sauna & shower. This creates a truly seamless look.
