Kitchen in the Bak house

The open kitchen was the reason the Baks bought the house. All decorating was done by homeowner Mary-Lou Bak.

The Elliot house.

The little red house in Glen Williams, circa 1850, was thoughtfully renovated by the Elliot family. It was recently featured in “4 Houses Canada” on HGTV.

The Elliots’ mud room, converted into a dining room, seems to be lit by stout candles, which are actually one dramatic electric light fixture.
Decorating thanks to The Taggart Team and Lasting Impressions, Holiday House Tour Committee and Sobey’s.

Balogh pool shed

When your pool shed is as handsome as the one in the Balogh back yard, it can easily become cute for Christmas.

  • Nice house tour pictures Mike! Thanks for letting me know where I could see some since I couldn’t go on the tour. It’s a nice touch for those of us who couldn’t make it but would have loved to have gone.
