Final Images: Watermark {Spyglass}

Here are a few images from our latest home in Watermark {301 Spyglass}.

The vaulted foyer is filled with numerous windows flooding this space with natural light and detail from the two toned windows. The staircase has a carpet runner with custom post that turned out to be an amazing focal point upon entering the home

The home office is to the right when you walk in the front door. We incorporated a dropped beam ceiling, custom two toned mill-work, and French doors. This room can act as a home office, intimate library, or even a music many options.

{Dining Room}
To the left of the front entry is the formal dining room that is finished with 42" tall shaker style wainscoting and dark navy walls to add an intimate feel to the space. 

{Powder Room}
I went with a furniture style vanity for the powder room, it has an open shelf below and framed mitered mirror with beautiful wall sconces.

{Mud Room}
You know me, I love my fun floors in mud rooms and built-in lockers for additional storage. With this layout I went with upper cabinet doors to conceal the clutter vs. the baskets I have been using as of late. 

I'll share more from this home later next week, this girl has a VERY busy day and week ahead...hope your weekend if fabulous! Mel xo

Hillhurst {431} Revealed, all 16' of it...

In Calgary we call these 'Skinnies', 'Jewel Boxes', or 'Grain Elevators'. 16' of width (interior dimension) is what makes up these home in the inner city communities, this particular one happens to be located in the community of Hillhurst and is one of our latest homes to be completed. As you can image it is a tad difficult to get everything in 16' but from what we have built-in the past this is one of my favorite plans so far since it offers everything people in the market are looking for and the floor plan just works. 

{Mud Room}
Yes, a mud room in a home that is 16' wide and it is packed with style and space. 

At the front of the home, over-sized amazing windows that flood the room with natural light. Just wish the stone guys had taken the boxes away prior to the it a 'trash photo bomb' I guess.

I took the cabinet to the ceiling to maximize storage, added a couple floating shelved for some style and then an amazing 10' long island for everyone to gather around. What I don't have a pic of is the large walk-in pantry with oodles of shelves, again, something that is typically missing from homes like this. Packed this kitchen with Viking appliances and a beautiful leathered granite and I'm in love.

{Family Room}
The focal points for this space are the 8' tall terrace doors and the fireplace surround with custom mill-work and stone detailing. The 10' ceilings allow this space to let the light flood in.

{Master Bathroom}
Vaulted ceilings and a muted color pallet ensures that this space has that spa feel people love with a modern edge. The framed mirrors are accented by the Visual Comfort sconces and Delta faucets. The free standing tub and built-on-site shower with dual heads finish off the space.

{Lower Level}
What is the best kind of storage you ask? Wine storage of course!! In the developed basement we have an over-sized bedroom, full bathroom, wet bar, wine room, and MASSIVE rec room that extends under the patio above.

The 'more' is the walk-in laundry room with sink and oodles of cabinets, two additional bedrooms on the upper level with a Jack & Jill Bath, the large walk-in in the master bedroom with built-in cabinets, and the massive backyard.

If you are living in the Calgary area there will be an open house this Sunday, June 30 from 1-4pm. Location is 431 15th St NW in Hillhurst.
