Chuck Mills (Co-Lead Designer for “Habitat Gift Home”


Master Bedroom & Master Ensuite Bath; Foyer & Staircase


“Our goal for the Master Suite was to combine classic design with modern elements to create a comfortable space focused solely on rest and relaxation. “Arts & Crafts”-inspired wall trim detail provide a distinctive yet subtle detail on the bed wall. This detail is painted out in a warm color to match the wall, flanked by twin windows and set off by a shallow tray ceiling, all centered on the bed creating a perfect focal point for the room. This space also features floor-to-ceiling custom built-in clothes wardrobe cabinets eliminating the need for unnecessary furniture.”

“The Master Ensuite Bath features opposing his and her vanities with custom framed mirrors, elegant Limestone tile floors, and a separate wet area with a simple soaker tub and a huge walk-in shower with conventional and rainwater shower heads. The shower walls are clad in a beautiful ceramic with an inlayed glass Mosaic border and separate, recessed bottle niches.”

“Finally our goal for the Foyer and Stairs was to create a visually open, dramatic feel. This was achieved with a stunning, open rise stair with Walnut-stained treads and a simple metal handrail. A striking, quartz-like thin stone veneer stretches from the basement to the second floor ceiling as a backdrop to the open staircase.”


“It has truly been my honour to have been involved in this unique project, both as co-lead designer and as a room designer. This opportunity has allowed me to give back to the community, by using my 30 plus years of design experience and it has also left an indelible mark on me as an individual.”

“I must thank all of the trades and generous suppliers and the countless volunteers without whose materials, expertise and sweat a project of this magnitude would not be possible! It is truly an experience I will never forget!”
