Burke Lake Reveal

Well folks, we have a lot of home reveal projects to show you in the coming months and we couldn’t be more excited to bring you all the fun details! We’ll start here with our Burke Lake build. We built this acreage for some great clients, Jolene, Matt and their 2 kids (soon to be 3!). They had an amazing vision for what they wanted this house to be and we were beyond honored to bring it to life for them!

This 1,800 square foot bungalow has a lovely traditional design feel to it. We went with a neutral color scheme and added in some very classic touches like the matte white appliances, a concrete mantle, and beautiful oak railing in the entryway. The kitchen is one of my favorite spots in this entire home. Instead of going with a traditional white kitchen, Jolene really wanted something a bit warmer. We used Superior Cabinet’s Cobblestone MDF cabinets and paired it with Oak accents on the island and small details such as the wine cubbies and floating shelves. The quartz backsplash that goes up the wall is the ultimate “high end” look our clients were hoping to achieve!


In the living room we were able to incorporate our clients existing sectional and antique chair into the room. The sectional was purchased years ago from Ikea and ended up fitting the space perfectly! The area rug was a new purchase and sourced from Urban Outfitters. We really wanted to display our client’s family photos somewhere that everyone could enjoy when visiting so we created a “timeline photo wall” using frames from Ikea and photos starting with engagement and ending with their current family of four. Last but not least – The curved detail at the top of the bookshelves is the perfect touch to bring this traditional room design together.


Each kid deserves their own special space to play, dream, and sleep in we believe! We installed a beautiful fox wallpaper from Anne Wall’s in one of the kid’s bedrooms and also used a daybed as a way to create more floor space for the kids to utilize. Daybeds are a great way to create extra room on the floor and also allows a spot for your little one or guests to curl up in. Lastly, the bathroom is a real eye catcher complete with 3 inch ripped MDF shiplap painted in Silver Satin and penny round floor tile purchased from Flooring Superstores.


Another calming space in this house! We framed what is called a Tray Ceiling in the master bedroom to add some height and give visual interest! The gorgeous curtains you see used throughout this project were sourced from a Canadian company called, Q Design Centre. They’re extremely heavy, blackout, and just downright LUXURIOUS! They definitely come with a higher price tag than a normal set of curtains but are very much worth it and allow you to not need blinds! The master ensuite is complete with a custom white vanity with slates on bottom for extra storage. We used unique floor and wall tiles and installed them using 75% white tiles and 25% taupe tiles. The shower niches photographed above allow for shampoo and soap storage while the bottom niche functions as a spot to set your razor and to place your foot while shaving your legs!


A modern farmhouse style that will stand the test of time! We used James Hardie cement board on the entire exterior. When living on an acreage we always recommend using a fiber cement product as high winds can easily rip vinyl siding off. We added a touch of personality with the black shutters and randomized white shakes on the top dormer. We added TONS of pot lights as this is a MUST when considering acreage living.

As always, welcome home, Grise Family! You were an absolute pleasure to work with and we know we will be seeing more of you in the future 🙂
