Every year, for the past  five years, Lynda Reeves and her design team at House and Home design, build and decorate a home to be won in the Princess Margaret Lottery.  The 2011 showhome is once again located in Oakville, Ontario and is 6,800 sq ft.

The inspiration and jumping off point for the entire decorating scheme was the Ralph Lauren leather camp chair seen below in the great room.  Lynda Reeves says the house is reminiscent of a wine estate you would see in the countryside of Argentina.  It is casual yet elegant, traditional yet rustic. I love the chevron wood floors and the Montauk sofa.

I loved the basement level which included a media room, bedroom, laundry room and wine tasting room.  All the furniture and accessories are from Ikea. (above 3 photos)

Beginning tomorrow it is open to the public so if you are in the Oakville area, stop in for a visit.  For those that can’t visit in person, House and Home has posted videos online so it’s like you are there.  Photos are also in the October issue of House and Home and more info is here.

PS The Christie Antique show is on tomorrow. Will I see you there?
