Details on the houses in the Home and Garden Decorating Contest

Please note: contestants had to specify which three items, purchased from Relay for Life kiosks at the Home and Garden Expo, they used in their builds.

In addition, on a voluntary basis, they were invited to supply details of the other items they used in their home, to share a backstory, and a link to any blogs they wrote.


House No.1: The Kaizan House, designed by Also Known As and decorated by ʙᴏʙ ᴋ ɴ ʟᴇᴇ ᴅɪᴤᴛʀᴀᴛᴛᴏ (choiboiami)

Blog entry:

Background Story:
Kaizen House reminds me of a gorgeous home you would see in an Architecture Magazine or blog. A gorgeous modern home built into nature that makes both earth and stone harmonious. Where a couple has built a beautiful piece of land in the country within driving distance to Seoul. Where the mountains and river are the perfect framed photos beyond the windows. Owned by a couple that loves to live green and be one with nature while appreciating the beauty of modern architecture. Who wish to have nature both inside and out.

So when decorating, I decorated it as that couple.

He is a talented designer and architect who is happy to own and live in this one of a kind art piece. He works from home most days to have peace of mind and quiet to give him the zen he needs to work. She is a talented chef who loves to work with fresh grown food and herbs from her own garden. The home is complete with a gorgeous home office that gives him a beautiful view of the earth around him and spots to display his work and space for his painting hobby to grow as well. She has created a modern kitchen that is surrounded by plants and her own wall mounted hydroponic garden complete with fresh strawberries for her favorite desserts. An open design that outlooks to their beautiful zen garden and a modern living room for guests to gather while she cooks. Upstairs they have a beautiful soaking tub to relax in after a long day of work and spend romantic candle lit time together with a gorgeous view of the mountains and river just off their private deck that has steps leading to the roof where they enjoy events with friends or romantic picnics alone, stargazing at night.

House No.2: Eco IV by Maven Homes (renamed as the Astronaut House and decorated by DevinVaughn

Blog entry:

Background Story:
YES! I have a story for my home! The owner is not actually an astronaut, but people always refer to the house as Astronaut House, so I will just go with that. NASA Rover Engineer House doesn’t have the same ring to it.
He worked on the team for the NASA JPL Mars Rover Curiosity. (His family and baby pictures are all of the rover!)
That mission has led to his new project, to design a people rover for the Human mission to Mars! But it’s not all work with him; on the weekends he throws pizza parties. His wood oven pizzas with fresh herbs are so popular, he even sells them on the side as “Space Pizza” and a mascot “Pizza Rat.” But sometimes the best moments are when he is alone with his sweetheart watching the Meteor Showers and looking at the stars.

RFL Items (purchased at the Expo):
Jian Black Cat,
Rioko Photo display
and Chich 2 greek pots

House No8: The Bocas Bella, designed by Spargel and Shine and decorated by Mari Moonbeam

Background Story:
When I saw all the lovely opening windows in Tess’s Spargel&Shine Bocas Belle house I thought what a perfect house for the tropics. Can’t you “feel” the breeze? I love color and blending historical periods.

So I went with a theme of India in Victoria’s time. I imagine this is home for an Englishman who travels a lot. He doesn’t have a kitchen in his home, he’s either out with friends, at the Club or sends a servant to bring him food.

I decorated with the idea the temperature is HOT — breezes are important – so dining is near corner windows (eating poses built into the window seat, thank you Tess, you made it easy for me), the upstairs is the bath and the gentlemen sleeps downstairs near a window.

More importantly that theme enabled me to use some items made by people who left us all too soon due to cancer.

Ironic that a disease that multiples cells like mad takes irreplaceably unique people from us.

House No.9: The Echo IV, designed by Maven Homes, decorated by Elayna Rexen

Background Story:
The Inspiration for decorating the Eco IV came from my love of nature and wanting rustic charm with a home-y feel to things. I have added wood and iron in the decorating theme of things from a very talented creator, Ria Bazar. Ria`s designs seem to complement the house designer, Cain Maven`s build.

House No.10: The Rothko, designed by Kaerri and decorated by Wιʟʟα Cαʟʟιdoяα (willahmina)

Background Story:
She stood about five foot five, with beautiful curly brown hair that she never had to tame. Her blue eyes were glazed over, as she looked at her phone, continuously scrolling through home listings. She was an artist, looking to move to a new place with new inspiration after an awful break up with someone she had been with for years. She had been looking for weeks, at every listing site she could think of, and nothing was capturing the style that was truly her. After scrolling for what seemed like forever, she scrolled passed a house that made her do a double take. It was on the corner of a beautiful street, surrounded by what looked like other lovely houses.

Rothko House by Kaerri was just her style. It wasn’t your average square house, it had charm in its angles, and the large glass windows would be perfect for finding inspiration in the patio and garden area. She could already imagine the loft bedroom overlooking her art studio and a master bathroom with a claw foot tub and shower. She just couldn’t stop imagining what this house could look like after she was done with it. Calling her realtor quickly to let her know they had to make an offer!

When move-in day came, she was thrilled to start her new project. She made her way over to botanical for most of her landscape needs, adding beautiful hedges along the patio, and a custom fence design, from fancy decors Davis Fence Kit. Knowing she wanted it to be tranquil, she added the pavilion from Trompe Loeil, making sure to add koi fish into the pool area, theres just something about watching them swim that relaxes her. Her art work and easel came next, fitting a small studio area right in the front of the house. The ornate detail of the entry way was added later, to make the entire open concept feel more warm and cozy, still allowing you to see through to the patio from the entire wall.

After Roost put in the kitchen, it was finally livable! She could sit at her kitchen island and enjoy the view, while sipping her cannabis tea. Right then, she knew she had made the right choice in picking this home. She added some seating and a fireplace and made room for an office, so she had a place to work at home… and you know the claw foot tub she dreamed of, LAQ has the most beautiful tub, that she raised on marble in her new master bathroom. You could say that this home is every bit of her… an artist, a romantic and the place she will always call home.

House No.12: The Kaizan House, designed by Also Known As and decorated by Flame Chaos Freeman (littlemissflame) and BlueGreyEyeGentleman

The finalist who was designing No.12 – The Kaizan House – decided he was unable to abide by the rules of the competition (500 prim limit; 3 items purchased from Relay For Life vendors at the Home and Garden Expo) and therefore withdrew.

As this was very much at the last minute, we invited our first reserves, Flame Chaos Freeman (littlemissflame) and BlueGreyEyeGentleman to design a special home, out of competition. And here is the story that they came up with:

Why, hello there. Welcome to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Riley. I do hope you enjoy your stay. Ed is an Airlines Pilot and enjoys traveling the world, whisking away to far off places. Willow is a Therapeutic Equestrian teacher. I know you wondering what that means. Well she teaches horseback riding therapy to children with disabilities. Their home is a combination of, eccentric, a little bit country, modern, eclectic free for all. Ed likes a more modern type feel and aesthetic. Willow enjoys a more homey type country style with modern touches. As you can see I think Ed’s style has rubbed off on her a bit more then she’s willing to say.

As you enter you see an open floor plans, a warm brick fireplace, and leather funriture. Oh and Jethro laying on the floor. Best not to wake him or he’ll follow you all over the house. Guess I forgot to mention our couple are both lover of animals. Lets continue shall we? To the left is a collage of art that represents the travel they both enjoy. The Toronto skyline is a bit of reminds Edward of Canada where he grew up and was raised. The London skyline is for Willow, she grew up on the British countryside. As you glance out to the patio here you see the horse sculpture that is near and dear to Willows heart. A small seating area where they sit to have drinks from time to time. As you move about the first floor, you can get a taste of their both their styles. The country type kitchen, the barrage of cat silhouettes, the artsy painted table and black chair’s. The straight lines consoles, the comfy couch, different house plants, bubble looking chair, and modern painting.

Then you open the doors to the backyard. It’s a more serene, yet simple place. A patio modern type set, a sweet wooden bench. As you look out you see a small koi pond, and big oak trees, with a country looking swing. It’s their little get away place. To relax and have the modern world around them disappear for a little while. By now I’m sure you maybe wondering about the little Asian undertone here and there. Well they both like to meditate and do a bit of yoga. But Mr. Riley might just deny it if you ask him. They where enlightened by the several trips they’ve made to China and Japan. That they wanted to bring a bit of the tranquility home with them. Hence the namaste doormat, koi pond, bamboo fencing, and the little mediation spot upstairs. Wait….I’m getting a head of myself here. Lets go back inside and head on up stairs. Not too fast now or you may run into the fish tank at the top. Last time I did that, Mrs. Riley banned me from the house for a month. I swear she must speak fish or something. Everytime she gets close to that tank the fish scurry to the glass. When she talks to them it’s like you see these little air bubble escape there mouths in response.

Anyway, again the same as below an open floor plan. Come follow me this way, towards the “bedroom.” Here you have just your simple wood and black finishing. I like to say their bedroom set is a little bit country meets rockin roll. That’s just cause of the light wood and black accents of it all. Not much to see here really, but I do like the modern tryptic painting over the bed. Oh ya and that’s Meowzilla their cat there sleeping. She hates me, the feeling is some what mutal, so please leave her be. When we turn back to to the stairs. You see the bathroom, no modesty here at all. Hey, lets not judge, they’re a very close couple. You have the deep romantic looking tub, equipped with shear curtain, candles, and rose petals. For those welcome home, date night, romantic interludes. Then your double sinks and cool red mirrors, gotta love those huh? Over here you have Mrs. Riley’s desk, it’s not much I know. She likes doesn’t like to bring her paper work home with her. She does enjoy writing and reading from time to time. Turn this way and you’ll see the part I totally love about this house. I saved the best for last, well kinda. Yes, that’s a baby grand piano and a guitar. How cool is that? Yeah both Mr. and Mrs. Riley are musicians. Mr. Riley’s mother at one point wanted him to be a concert pianist. He was like nope, never gonna happen mom. That didn’t stop her from making him take piano lesson. But man, did they ever pay off, you should hear him play. He’s really good even if he doesn’t think so. I know Mrs. Riley think so. She sits curled up on her favorite chair there. The big, black, oversized, leather chair, with the blanket. She just watches and listens to Mr’ Riley play the piano. She adores when he plays the classical stuff for her. I literally thought she was gonna swoon into nothing but a puddle at he’s feet once. It definitely has to be one of the big things she loves about him.

As for Mrs. Riley, she plays the guitar. She likes to say she’s more of a licker then a player. She pretty good to be honest. Plays a lot of country though, not really my thing. I know one song Mr. Riley loves that she plays and sings. It’s Imagine by John Lennon, bring a tear to he’s eye. He told me once that every time she plays it for him. It makes him fall in love with her all over again. When they are both home those usually become music nights. If your ever in the neighborhood drop in and you can hear them playing from the street. Finally to the little balcony lounge, sanctuary. Out here we have to modern leather lounger’s, a cage table and meditation spot. With water fountain, meditation mat, bamboo plant, and bonsai tree. Well that concludes our tour…….

Hurry that’s them now! Quick down the stairs, out the back door, and thru the gate. Refund, there’s no refunds. I earned the 50 Lindens you gave me taking you on the tour. Well I hope you had a good time, I know I did. Oh and don’t tell the Riley’s I do this. A teenager has to make some kinda money to spend on summer vacation. Well this an besides what they give me for house sitting and watching their pets when they’re away. Thanks a lot for coming, I’ll see ya around. Don’t forget to tell your friends. I’ll be doing house tours for the next month or so, see ya.
