Lovingly named the Pickering Project because that’s the name of the street the house is on this beautiful Ontario home was created to showcase how someone doesn't need a ton of square footage to create a breathtaking home that still is budget conscious. Designed by award-winning Canadian designer Karen Sealy, this renovation has pulled out all the stops—from design to smart home technology to product functionality—to create a space that is both family friendly and phenomenal. With a complete Control4 smart home system in the home, this space is as functional as it is beautiful.

Beautiful modern kitchen with connected audio distribution, iPad access to home control, and automated lighting control and design—including specialty lighting scenes for kitchen use.

Charming entry and living area complete with automated audio distribution and in-ceiling speakers, custom connected lighting design, voice control and preset switch scenes, video intercom and touch screen, zoned security system with access in every room, and a custom home network.

Elegant master bathroom complete with motorized/automated shades, in-ceiling speakers for audio distribution, and automated lighting.

Smart home technology is a conversation I have with clients in the beginning because the technology available today can really elevate daily living, but you have got to work it into the budget from the start.

– Karen Sealy, Interior Designer
