Design Writer Sarah Walker Visits the Oakville Showhome

“So without further ado, let me share my favourite space in the Princess Margaret Lotto Showhome. It is – in one sense – the simplest space in the house.

A desk.

Two chairs.

A tree.

That’s it.

Well, unless you count the endless windows and decadent abundance of natural light. At the end of the day, that’s all I really need. NATURAL LIGHT. In fact, it’s my favourite Designer luxury.”
