This is a house that unashamedly bursts with colour, paintings, furniture and other such. Jonathon self-deprecatingly refers to this as "clutter" but he manages the trick of combining a homely atmosphere with everything you could need to feel pampered.....

.... When he moved to Canada from Merseyside in the early 90s, he only had a few ornaments with him, so Westways owes much of its diversity to the auction houses of Calgary. Walls are covered with paintings, newspapers, plates, photos. The pale green sitting room and dining room have their original bevelled windows, hardwood floors, large red rugs and lots of porcelain and glassware. The fun continues upstairs. I slept in a room called ‘Rose’ and hummed with contentment over the sitting room, entertainment system and soft gold bedspread. On the top floor are the two luxury suites. Both have wooden floors, large gas fireplaces and sumptuous beds, while ‘Scollen’ also boasts a jet-bath in the room and a balcony. Jonathon has trained as a chef so he’s no slouch at breakfast either, and if you still can’t quite persuade yourself to leave the house, the enclosed verandah with its under-floor heating is a great place for coffee. Westways is very central to all Calgary’s downtown shenanigans; there’s public transport nearby, restaurants within easy walking distance, and a small park at the back of the house.
