Woodland Home Gets Clean Lines but Natural Touches
Unique finishes like driftwood-look tiles and a metallic backsplash give Niagara Region home personality.
While this woodland home on 12 acres in Pelham, near St. Catherines, was originally going to have exposed beams running across its interior cathedral ceilings, the owners opted for clean lines instead. But because they liked the natural feeling outside the home, they found other ways to bring nature in.
They comissioned Tucker Homes to build the 3,800 sq. ft. home, a family-run business known for their quality craftsmanship.
The great room is the heart of the home, drawing colours from the woodland outside: timber greys, light browns, and wood features. Its focal point is the fireplace by One Stop Fireplace Shop, clad floor-to-ceiling in a grey, driftwood-look tile sourced at Alfieri Floor Experts.
The furnishings, all purchased for the new house, continue the colour scheme, complementing the grey-brown engineered hardwood floors from Alfieri, and neutral wall colour provided by The Paint Can. Touches of nature are sprinkled throughout. A mirror by the front door is framed by tiny wood disks. An unfinished wooden clock hangs in the laundry room. Decorative birch branches garnish the master bath.
The open-concept floor plan seamlessly integrates the great room and kitchen by Timberwood Kitchens, done in greys, blacks and balancing creams. A stunning Moroccanstyle, silver backsplash by Alfieri adds an eye-catching pop.
A loft office, accessible by a grand staircase by Amber Stairs & Railings Inc., overlooks the entire great room. A spacious master bedroom with a generous walk-in closet and an en suite by Bathworks are tucked into a private corner on the ground floor. Windows throughout are by Crowland Sash & Frame Ltd.
Above the three-car garage is the perfect private refuge for guests or family when they visit: two bedrooms, one bath, and a small sitting room.
