For the past 19 years, Minto Communities in Ottawa has partnered with the CHEO Dream of a Lifetime Lottery to supply the grand prize for a fundraising endeavor in support of the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.
The 2019 Dream Home sits in the Potter’s Key community in Stittsville. The Hampton is a 5,641 square-foot home decorated by Ottawa designer Tanya Collins, who chose a relaxed coastal-inspired décor to dress the home which is designed with family living and entertaining in mind.
The space offers a look into upcoming trends that tap into the need to connect with nature and find strength and refuge through personal space.
Blue & Green
Walk into the dream home and immediately feel the influence of nature through the colour teal. A combination of blue and green creates this shade which gets its name from the colour found on the head of the Teal duck.
Designer Tanya Collins used teal on the living room and dining room walls, balancing its strength with cream furnishings from La-Z-Boy Furniture Gallery. She then brought the colour into the main floor powder room on a custom vanity from Laurysen Kitchens.
Rest & Retreat
A bedroom is no longer a space just meant for tucking in for the night. The bedroom offers both kids and adults a place at home to call their own. The master bedroom of the CHEO Lottery Dream Home offers a sitting area as an escape for reading, listening to music or catching up on social media. Walls feature grass-cloth wallpaper and botanical prints in a true reflection of nature’s inspirations. Luxury bedding from Suite Dreams Emporium ensures that much-needed good night’s sleep when it’s time to finally tuck in!
The children’s rooms pick up on the popular blue and soft pink colour trend. Rooms for boys and girls feature upholstered headboards in neutral tones with timeless patterns that easily transition through the ages. Change up the bed linens to transform the entire space. Area rugs, in on-trend patterns like an animal print, ensure high style in these spaces but can also easily be changed out as trends change.
Clever use of ceiling colour in the boy’s room offers just the right balance of a strong blue without overwhelming the room.
Visit the CHEO Lottery Dream Home on 348 Eaglehead Crescent until December 6.
