In Game of Homes, Host Cameron Mathison guides teams of skilled amateur home renovators as they compete for the chance to trade their skills for the prize of a lifetime. The teams save rundown houses that are marked to be torn down and revive them into dream homes. Each team must redo the houses room by room, as they cope with small budgets, tight deadlines and even tighter living spaces. Charlotte and her partner Sean, Network’s biggest prize winners, took HOME the big win (quite literally) in the season finale of Game of Homes. With eight weeks to renovate four decrepit homes room-by-room, four teams of amateur renovators battled small budgets, tight deadlines, cramped quarters and each other for a chance to win their dream home. Charlotte and Sean impressed the judges and the public with the broad appeal of their West Coast-meets-modern-style home to beat out the other three teams. This was seriously the craziest thing that both Char and Sean had EVER been through but they had the time of their lives doing it.
Loved creating this cozy media room filled with gold, brown and black tones. Cowhide rug was a personal favourite! We built out the old closet to create an inset nook with a marble counter top. Painting the ceiling a darker beige helped to make the room feel warm and complete. Our couch that we pre selected LITERALLY fit by less then an inch, tight squeeze!
By far my favourite room in a house! The kitchen is a place where so much time is spent and SO many wonderful memories created (for me at least...) Sean and I knocked out the wall that divided this space from the living room - we really wanted to create am open concept 'great room' that worked with our entertaining and dinner party packed lifestyle. This kitchen was huge and we opted for a timeless look that would accommodate multiple food (and drink) prep stations. The herringbone tile back splash was big to tackle in such a short amount of time but I think it payed off! Although we didn't win this challenge, it still feels like a dream kitchen for us!
What a stressful challenge! So much happened over these three days but we somehow managed to pull it all off! As soon as we picked out our washer/dryer I went to the tile store and was immediately obsessed with the nickel penny tiles. They complimented each other better then coffee and choclate in the same bite! We built the cabinets and installed a pre-cut, laminate counter top ourselves and it was surprisingly easy to do!
I fell in love with the large scale wave tiles for the bathroom and felt it really tied in with our west coast theme and created a soothing visual for the space. We focused on grey scale tile and for the rest of the space for a relaxing but sophisticated feel.
Although we got absolutely slammed by the judges for our bold and contemporary exterior, we were dedicated to maintain the flow from the exterior into the interior of our house. A 1950's bungalow proved difficult to modernize but Sean and I stayed true to our style and gave it a go! This was honestly the most 'out of my comfort zone' that I felt throughout the entire show - it was really difficult to visualize what the whole thing was going to look like! Our favourite feature was the pebble tile, glass in cased landing at the front door. Sean worked hard to reduce the pagoda looking peaks from the roof and flatten out that roof line. We were given 4 days to complete the entire exterior - definitely our hardest challenge!
