{2013 pne lottery prize home}


Hi everyone! I hope you had a lovely long weekend. The extra day off was much needed wasn't it? But somehow at the end of it I still found myself thinking, 'if I only had one more day!!'

I did however, have the chance to pop over and view this years PNE prize home here in Vancouver. It was designed by local celebrity designer and former star of the ‘Bachelorette,’ Jillian Harris. I was a fan of her extensive use of black, white & grey throughout the home {images via Global BC, click to enlarge}.


















It really was prettier in person, the photos don't entirely do it justice. I particularly fell for the black walls in the master bath, a tough thing to pull off but this house was so light and bright that it totally worked. Any elements that really captured your attention?

Hope you have a great start to the week!

Love the simplicity and elegance of the house. It's gorgeous! I really am drawn to the windows and doors - I would love to have these in my own home.

Hi Nancy! I was totally prepared not to like it, judging from the outside which was ho hum typical. The inside really through me though. I love Jillian's use of restraint, and extensive use of texture, via: the walls. I think the laundry room was my favorite. Nowadays everyone is doing fun colorful washer/dryer, but the all white space was so beautiful. I would love to come i and see this house in person! Thanks for the share.

This is by FAR my favourite PNE Showhome ..... BY FAR!!!! Best one in the history of PNE Showhomes!!!! I am a black and white lover so of course this is something I am drooling over. The wooden walls are amazing, there are absolutely no words to describe how happy I am to see such a beautiful home. Gillian did good! I do agree with Dawna though with the exterior of the house .... ho hum typical but the inside more than makes up for it.

Totally did not like it. I found it generic without anything that captivated. I thought these homes were supposed to be a showcase. Looked like standard builder issue to me. I expected more.

Wow, I love the arrangement :) Definitely not a shabby way to live :) Love the finer details too like the furnishing and the bedspreads
