For our nation's 150th anniversary, we thought we'd help you get those patriotism feelings flowing with a collection of some of the best Canadian designs, from both our architects and our interior designers. All of the trends and features of Canadian design are here. From the log homes that you'll want to spend cottage season in, to the art deco homes that will feel fresh all winter, every season in represented. We sampled from all over the country too, including a Vancouver home decked out in stone, a warm and bright Ottawa home, and a Winnipeg boat house you'll want to fish from. So, let's start the celebration! 

1. This Winnipeg home has a huge deck, a a bright pink personality.

2. This BC home isn't afraid to put the focus on the gorgeous coastline. The windows let you see right through to the water.

3. Ottawa winters are quite harsh, but this warm wooden home is ready to shelter you.

4. Here is the intriguing art deco home. It's full of eccentric details like that yellow and plastic chair.

A closer look: The living room is just as art deco, with some deep and soft chairs to relax in while you ponder the art.

5. This Art Deco home stands out on it's Hamilton block with a brilliant two-layer design that makes the most of the modern combination of white and glass.

6. Every window in this Ottawa home is perfectly design to bring in the best light for each space.

7. To match Vancouver's nature-filled atmosphere, this house made great use of grey stone and expert landscaping.

8. In this boathouse you can choose between sitting near the water, sitting above the water, or sitting inside but still getting the benefit of the sun through those massive windows.

9. With such a complex shape, this house really benefits from the mainly grey exterior. It feels unified and stark.

10. We've never seen this shade of blue used so well. The timber really rings out the warmth in it.

11. The long vertical stripe on this Ottawa home really sets it apart from the rest of the block.

12. Here's the cottage we're all dreaming of, with a long porch made of rich and warm timber.

13. Or, maybe you prefer this cottage? The roof has the same dramatic slant as the last, but this one focuses on glass.
