Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas


It’s always a good day when you start it by seeing a home built by one of my favorite Canadian builders, Veranda Estate Homes (previously featured here & here). They’re truly creative and they often design things that you haven’t seen before. In my opinion, Melissa, the owner and designer, is a trend setter and it’s always a pleasure to share her work on Home Bunch. Here, the designer share more details about this transitional custom home.

“This custom home was designed and built specifically for our amazing clients and their new little one. They originally wanted a more traditional design for the home but after seeing our other project, Elbow Park, they decided to take the interior and exterior of the home in a different direction… a more modern one.

They were absolute dream clients that allowed us to create an amazing home with so many unique and beautiful details throughout. While both clients are busy professionals we only had to meet a few times throughout the entire construction since everything was confirmed via email. Great communication with a lot of trust created an amazing end product!”

Enjoy the house tour, everyone!

    Those cabinets throughout the house tour are EXACTLY what I’ve been searching and searching for ♥ I would love to know the stain ratio or recipe, if at all possible? They are absolutely beautiful and perfect! Very rare that I like everything I see in a home and this post has surpassed my expectations. Thank you so much for listing item links, too! Those white oak cabinets with the custom stain belong in my new build house/kitchen ♥ Any help would be greatly appreciated! Sub’g to your newsletter and following on social media. Great site!!

  2. Hi Jane,

    Thank you so much for your kind words and for following along. I truly appreciate this!
    Unfortunately the formula wasn’t shared with me. I believe the designer & builder mixed it on site and I am not sure if she is able to share it. Please, try to contact her through their website. She might be able to share more details with you. Trust me, I would love to know more about it too! 🙂

    Have a wonderful day and keep in touch!

    I asked the builder but he said he was not allowed to share the stain recipe. It was worth a try because they shared all the paint colors:)

  4. Kay said,

    Countertops just say “leathered granite”. It looks like it might be Uba Tuba? Can you confirm. Love the look! Stunning job on your home!
