So I got to go on a sneak-a-peek tour of the Calgary Stampede Lotteries Dream Home for this year and all I can say is WOW. This home is out of this world.
Homes by Avi has truly outdone themselves with this one! The Rotary Dream Home is valued at $938,375. Here are a few quick details about this year’s Dream Home:
I had the pleasure of meeting Nora Arnett who painted the beautiful main floor faux wall featured above. The technique was accomplished using a lime plaster, opaque based paint in layers. She used wide natural bristle brushes and trowels to complete this effect. Nora has used three colours of grey, with the combination of each creating even more shades of grey. She also told me that, “For random erratic patterns, I used my non dominant hand, which was freaky…”
This wall was definitely one of my favourite parts of the house.
As I was strolling through the house, I was in awe of all of the art. I was admiring one painting in the bedroom when the artist walked in to the same room as me. His name is John F Gerrard and his art is unbelievable. The prints are so fitting to this year’s home! You can check out John’s whole Dream Home collection, here.

This is definitely going to be the year you’re going to want to check out the Dream Home.
