When Larry and Mary Kaye Hudson recently returned from wintering in Florida, they discovered their daughters and their decorator had updated their Listowel home with fresh accessories and décor and surprised them with a reveal as they walked through the door. 
 
The trio had transformed and refreshed a few rooms in the Hudsons’ two-year-old bungalow with on-trend colours and accessories. Family friend and decorator Andrea Bramhill helped the Hudsons achieve a cohesive, clean and functional space that met their taste. The already neutral space provided an easy canvas for some chic updates – one of the biggest benefits of a grey-and-white base palette.
 
They called on Chelsey Fotheringham at idesign Kitchen Studio to design their large kitchen and to install cabinetry in their bathrooms. The kitchen incorporat features like glass accent doors, a custom range hood and a shimmery quartz counter. The tiered kitchen island does double duty as an eat-in area and prep space.
 
Off the kitchen is a family room. Domm Construction installed a three-piece piece guest bathroom.
 
While couple’s main-floor master bedroom (furniture by Conway Furniture) is a soothing space, the lower level offers ample entertaining. A golf simulator takes advantage of 12-foot ceilings. A bar and sitting area and a pool table round out the action.

The Hudsons’ favourite room is the Muskoka room off the kitchen. It has the same relaxing feel as their family cottage.

A tiered island separates the prep/work area from the eating/ gathering space. It blends beautifully with the casual way this family lives.
