For 2021, the tour returns with five stunning homes designed to give tour goers a glimpse into an inspired life.

The homes, which are generally located in or around Glenora, offer tour goers five different ways to express your personality and bring it into your home.

“This tour supports the artistic operation of Ballet Edmonton, is our biggest fundraiser of the year and helps keep our artists employed,” said Sheri Somervile, General Manager of Ballet Edmonton. “We were so sad last year we had to cancel, but we are confident that we can do a safe tour this year.”

A masking protocol will apply to those participating in the tour and tour volunteers in each home, and there will be a limit of 15 people per home at any time.

Postmedia received a preview of two of the five houses: Room To Grow and Bungalow Beauty.

Room To Grow in north Glenora is a modern farmhouse with a twist that gives you a Scandinavian flair once inside. Homeowners Jenna and Jared Johannesen, who had one of their previous homes on the tour, recently owned their new 2,700 square foot home that is light, airy, and spacious. Vaulted ceilings on the ground floor add to the spacious feel, while wooden beams bind to the wooden cabinets and wooden floor. Even the large island and its quartz countertop have an edible in the butcher’s block.

Two other things stand out about this home: the lighting – one example is the two oversized organic rattan pendant lights that grace the kitchen island – and the fact that this home is good for this young family and theirs with tons of storage and space to grow four children are planned.

“The kitchen and dining room are one of my favorite places,” Jenna said. “The cabinets are full of storage solutions that enable a smooth process in the house.”

Jenna also designed her home office as a multi-function space as it doubles as a craft and play space so she can keep an eye on the kids and don’t clutter her toys in the rest of the house. As for lighting, which she calls the jewelry of the house, Jenna plays a safety role for her young children; Above it has light on motion detectors so that if someone moves at night, the hallway is lit.

Bungalow Beauty, meanwhile, offers a different take on the design with an older bungalow lovingly adapted to today’s lifestyle. Its 1950s bones have not been ignored and there are mid-century modern influences everywhere, from restored railings to a ceiling entrance dome that houses a spectacular light fixture that evokes a feel for the outdoors – let your eyes go away Light up to the back wall of the wander window and this ties in with the interior / exterior orientation of the house. By the way, the back yard is an oasis with a double deck, pergola and outdoor kitchen.
