Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


Doing what you love doesn’t mean that it will always be perfect, nor that some difficulties will never cross your path. But when you love what you do, you have a certainty in your heart that you’re doing the right thing because when you look deep inside, it feels right.

Creating the “Beautiful Homes of Instagram” series has allowed me to share not only inspiring interiors, but also inspiring stories and I am happy to have Pamela of pamela.saumure on the blog today. In fact, I was just talking to Pamela and I thanked her not only for all of the hard work she put into this feature, but especially for truly capturing the essence of this series. This is a space where I want you, the Home Bunch readers, to get to know the homeowner, how they live, how they decorate. It’s an opportunity for us to learn from real people – people like you and me – people that share the same passion for interior design and most importantly, the same goal of creating a happier home. Real people are not looking into creating a home that is perfect, one that looks pretty but feels cold on the inside, and I am a big believer that this series is so unique and original because it showcases homes of people that have a warm heart and create a home equally warm, where not only beautiful decor exists, but where real love grows… Pamela’s home is a good example of that.


“Hello friends, my name is Pam from @pamela.saumure.
I can’t express to you how grateful and excited I am to be contributing to this inspiring series. To have our home featured alongside other homes that belong to some of my favourite Instagram accounts is truly a huge honour. I can not thank Luciane enough for this amazing HomeBunch series that not only inspires me, but also inspires so many others with every article she writes.

My husband Chris and I grew up in rival towns about 15 minutes away from each other. We’ve been married for 28 years and have three grown daughters and a golden retriever. We’ve always lived in the area but closer to “his“ town. Building or renovating is not new to us, as Chris grew up in the construction industry. His father began a home building business almost 40 years ago, and now Chris is Vice President of the company which now focuses on commercial development along with our own property development.

In late 2016, we became empty-nesters and it was time to sell our “farmhouse“ style home that we built about 15 years ago and downsize. I had reservations about selling our home that we raised our daughters in and struggled about where would we would move to or what style of house we would build. We had always considered living on the water but finding waterfront property that was “perfect” and affordable is almost impossible, so when the opportunity to purchase this current property with an old cottage on it came up, located on the Big Rideau Lake, in a little village with lots of heart, we jumped at the chance. So, we had the property, now we just needed a style of home to build.

I spent hours looking at all of the homes on the HomeBunch website. I was so inspired by the talent and beauty of so many and fortunately was able to take bits and pieces from each home I loved and give it to our company’s draftsperson, and have him design our own home. I enlisted the help of my best friend Michelle, along with Maire of Elizabeth Interiors, a local interior designer, and her assistant Terri.

I have transitioned from a modern farmhouse look that I had previously designed in our other homes to a traditional lake home look, with a bit of a French feel on the inside that inspired me after several trips to France.

I am pleased to give you a virtual tour of our home.”

Our home is located on a flat waterfront lot at the end of a quiet road on a point. We are surrounded by water and are fortunate enough to enjoy a peaceful lake view from every window in our home.
