Support a great cause with the STARS home lottery

Last week I had the opportunity to visit the new STARS lottery home in Sylvan Lake.

This is always a big event and I’m proud to have been a part of it for the past few years. This year I was just a visitor and it was incredible to view the home as an ‘outsider’ and to marvel in the completed home without having had sneak previews of materials or design elements that were chosen for the house.

It was thrilling to see the home completely finished and to enter in to a beautifully decorated home.

Falcon Homes has pulled out all the stops this year and has created an elegant dream home finished with dreamy silver, indigo and glitz and glam galore.

Twisted balls of iridescent rope lighting dangle from the ceiling casting twinkling shadows around every room. It is important when you enter this home to stop and take note of the dreamy details. The highly polished chrome pulls in the kitchen and the tile detail in every nook and cranny.

Observe the rough lumber dining room table which is washed with silver and the jaw dropping damask wall tile in the main floor powder room.

There will be items in this house which scream for your attention but make the effort to observe the intricate details as well. There is so much about this home that charms and it may take awhile to totally walk through and see everything which is offered.

Glamour is available in every room, just wait until you enter the ensuite!

I could have grabbed a sleeping bag and a toothbrush and moved right in. The walk-in shower is divine and glossy and lit up like the Las Vegas strip, whoever wins this home will be the cleanest soul in Central Alberta from having spent so much time in this shower!

The entire house sparkles from the granite to the carefully chosen tile.

In the basement you will discover a perfect wine room complete with a tasting table tucked underneath the stairs.

It’s a perfectly compact and elegant room which uses that awkward space underneath the steps in a very efficient way. One side of the wine room is open glass which allows you to view the bottles as you come down the steps.

The twinkle of light coming through the openings and filtering through the bottles adds an unplanned element of design and almost an art like gallery painting.

A community event like the STARS lottery home is one that gives us a fun event in an afternoon combined with putting money towards a good cause.

The unexpected bonus is that we are treated to visual greatness and given a glimpse into the good life and are allowed to dream a little bit of what life would be like residing in that wonderful home.

I encourage you all to take the time to go and visit this home in Ryders Ridge and to support STARS in all the wonderful work they do in our province, it is truly a worthy cause.
