I am happy to be sharing yet another gorgeous “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” tour. Today my friend, Josie of @terra_cotta_decor, is opening the doors of her Canadian home and I couldn’t be happier. Her style is very elegant and I really don’t know how she’s able to do it all with three small children. I hope you enjoy seeing her home today and make sure to follow her on instagram. She’s truly a sweetheart!

 

It has been a little over 3 years since we moved into our custom dream home that we self-built from the ground up. To say that we built our dream home is one of our proudest accomplishments — besides our three little, darling daughters. 🙂

I was 4 months pregnant with our first daughter and we were driving from sub-division to sub-division looking for homes but nothing was catching our eye. That’s when my dad presented the idea of building to us. We laughed and dismissed his proposal but one day just for fun we decided to take a drive 45 minutes north of Toronto and that’s when we laid eyes on 2.5 acres of land for sale in the most charming small town of Erin, Ontario; where we would soon build our future home.
I was mesmerized by the beauty of nature — the rolling hills, open fields, and this huge, gorgeous pond that was filled with water lily’s (ironically we would name our first daughter Lily).

In late Summer of 2011, my handy dad single handedly started the excavation process, and shortly after laid down the footings. My husband is in the concrete business so his skills came in handy when it was time to pour the concrete for building the footings and the foundation.
One of the best decisions we made was using insulated concrete forms (LOGIX ICF) for our foundation. Due to the monolithic nature of Logix construction, our home is inherently air tight and having an energy efficient home significantly reduces our consumption of natural resources. Making a personal contribution to climate change while surrounding our family with unsurpassed comfort and safety is priceless.

Like many new endeavours, building our home was tirelessly challenging at so many stages of the building process, but it was also a thrilling and stimulating adventure! From filing for building permits, creating a design plan, to locating materials, it was a 3 year long labour of love.

During the build my passion for interior design & decor ignited. I love elegant, transitional designs combined with glamorous home accents; which you will notice with my collection of crystal chandeliers. The lighting is the jewellery of the home after all.

When I look around my home there are so many stories behind each room and an extra sense of pride and accomplishment.

As we continue to make more memories, it was all worth it… don’t tell my husband but I would build another custom home in a heartbeat. 🙂

We’re fortunate to experience all 4 seasons here and while summer is my personal favourite, there’s something extra special about our home with the element of snow on and around it. The Indiana limestone really comes alive and shines amid the winter wonderland.

We have geothermal heating & cooling systems that take advantage of the consistent temperature of our well water to remove heat from our home in the summer months and supply heat during the winter. It has proven to be extremely cost effective for our nearly 5,000 sq/ft home.

The entrance to your home is the ultimate first impression. The design of our home all started with the staircase. It was always my dream to have a Scarlett O’Hara staircase and I thought that it would make the ultimate style statement. The open risers add a modern and sophisticated look with an airy feel. I custom designed the wrought iron railings myself and I couldn’t be happier with the way they turned out.

Kitchen

White kitchen with grey walls Classic White kitchen with grey walls White kitchen with grey wall ideas

I would say that my kitchen is my favourite room. My goal was for it to exude an elegance and sophistication. Adding the glass cabinets along with adding the detailed scribe on the hood range and repeating it on the millwork above the kitchen sink helped to achieve my goal.

Appliances: Wolf Oven, Wolf Microwave, Wolf 5 burner Cooktop, Sub-Zero Fridge & Bosh Dishwasher.

I wanted to keep the fluidity of the Benjamin Moore Cloud White millwork by paneling the sub-zero refrigerator adjacent to the swing-door walk-in pantry and finishing off with paneling the wall with floor to ceiling trim.

The number one question I get asked is what type of marble is my countertop and backsplash. They’re actually quartzite and the colour is called Super White. A gorgeous grey and white stone that has the appearance of an aerial photograph of an icy, Arctic Ocean. It’s a natural stone from Brazil that has the look of marble but is far more durable.

Decor

I have 3 darling daughters and I wanted each of their bedrooms to be a reflection of their personalities and interests. I designed their rooms by starting with a colour scheme and incorporating an object/accessory/toy that they’re each fond of. The sweet ballet bunny on the nightstand was my inspiration for my middle daughters lavender bedroom.
