Welcome to the Maritime

Never has so much fun been had while selecting the finishes inside and out for a Display Home.  And do you know why?  It’s because we let you, the followers of Stone’s Prestige Homes, weigh in and make the selections for us!  This truly is YOUR home!  And The Maritime couldn’t be a better name for it, right?

Over the course of a couple months, you were given choices for the new display home and now it’s time for you to see the finished product!  Are you ready for the tour?

Let’s start with this great colour combination on the exterior.  The upgraded deep blue siding paired with the splashy yellow door is a great way to make the right first impression.  And the style of the front door is just so fabulous!


So, then we walk into the front entry, with a coat closet for all your gear.  It features a pocket door, which eliminates that awkward door swing.  The entry also has vinyl flooring so you don’t have to worry about wet or muddy footwear.  

Then you enter into the living room.  It’s got lots of bright windows so there is loads of natural light.  And with the open concept floorplan, the living room is open to the dining room and kitchen, meaning the whole space feels very expansive and bright.


I had a blast with this living room, I’ll admit.  I love the idea of the picture ledges so you can swap out artwork without making more holes.  The rug is serviceable, inexpensive and big enough to help tie together the furniture.  The sofa, fabulous blue chair and that sweet green table are all from Chediacs Furniture and seem to really suit the vibe of the house, perfectly casual!  But, I think my personal favourite element is the coffee table.  Probably because I painted it? It’s fun to do a DIY project with a home like this in mind – I knew I could have a little fun with it!


The kitchen is stunning.  The contrasting island in that gorgeous robin’s egg blue shows up so well against the dark stain of the wall cabinets.  And then topped off with different countertops really makes it pop.  The glass tile backsplash is a showstopper, too.  And of course, if that’s all too much colour for you, it could certainly be done in a more subtle colour palette.  There is lots of storage in this kitchen and the work flow is fabulous.  Having the seating at either end of the island also keeps everyone out of each other’s way, too.


The lighting throughout the main area makes sense for the layout.  Pot lights keep the ceiling line free and clear with accents over the island and sink.  Undercabinet lighting helps keep your task areas well lit for meal prep, too.  And putting everything on a dimmer lets you set the tone you want.

Down the hall is laundry, a full bath and then the stairwell, if you are using a full foundation.  The front bedroom can be used as a den, bedroom or office space, depending on your needs.  Again, with the big window, it keeps it very bright and inviting.



The master suite has a walk-in closet, as well as a bathroom, complete with stylish shower thanks to the U-tile surround.  The glass doors keep it well-lit and feeling bigger than the footprint actually is.  The painted cabinetry also is a fun change.  And for the size of it, it has lots of storage with that tall cabinet beside the sink.  The  bedroom layout can be changed up, too, but we do love the windows flanking the bed.

When it come to decorating the house, I wanted to keep it fresh and modern. I called the idea 'Modern Cottage'.   I made my choices casual, colourful and clean-lined.  The flowy curtains, all the textures, pops of colour everywhere with nautical nods throughout without being ‘themey’ – exactly how I envision living in this space. This house could be a great starter home, but also the perfect size for a retired couple, too.  
Until next time,

Lori Byrne
