Today’s special Canadian home by PURE Design, Inc. marries a mix of modern comfort with the slightest hint of a rustic touch. From the first glimpse of its curb appeal to a tour of the interiors, you’ll know why Canadian House and Home magazine featured it within its pages.
An arched doorway and portico greet you at the front step. A Christmas wreath and white birch branches add simple holiday style. And since tomorrow is Christmas, this will be the last holiday home tour for 2023.
Open the arched door and you’re greeted by a modern country style living room sporting a sparse Christmas tree. I’ve always been a fan of black trimmed windows set into creamy white walls like this – it creates a mildly industrial vibe which is so popular right now.
A closer look at the tree reveals wood slice and felted ball garlands along with simple ornaments.
Here’s a view of the pretty living room from the front door entry. A cozy fireplace on the right creates warmth with its fire on chilly days. Large windows provide beautiful views outside.
The black and white kitchen is dressed in modern style and uses hanging plants at the window in lieu of curtains or a shade.
The kitchen enjoys two sinks and you’ll note the dining area off to the right with a colorful contemporary painting.
The first floor is open, with sight lines from the entryway to the living room, dining room, and kitchen. I love the black wire basket-style pendant light.
An array of flowers, greens, candles, and birch slices create a festive holiday centerpiece on the table.
Today’s special Canadian home shows how a house can be festive at Christmas without being overdone. I love the simplicity of the holiday decorations. They have a Scandinavian vibe to them.
This little holiday vignette can be found in the kitchen next to the sink. Love the reindeer vase!
The striated wallpapered accent wall in the master bedroom looks like lines of snow and sky from a far-off horizon.
The master bedroom has its own cozy nook with a large window for morning views. The largest white globe pendant light is the exact same one my mother had in our dining room when I was growing up. You don’t see too many like it.
Presents are wrapped and ready under the tree, waiting to be opened on Christmas morning.
