The client’s love of the outdoors and the birds that visit their expansive garden were the inspiration for this home.
Renovation and Design Portfolio
The plan for this beautiful suite with stunning views of Downtown Vancouver was ‘simple elegance’.
This lovely family home was in need of a major update. The clients, now empty nesters, wanted their home to reflect their relaxed lifestyle, while keeping it open and airy for large family gatherings.
Traditional and classic, this home will surely pass the test of time.
Chrome and glass accents, metallic wallpapers and quartzite stone are featured throughout, creating a bright and reflective quality to the home.
Keeping in mind that the house attracts over 100,000 visitors during the fair, durability and functionality were kept top of mind. Features in the home include ‘vinyl’ hardwood floor, quartz countertops and hardwearing, washable fabrics.
Dark hardwood floors and black window frames anchor the space, creating contrast and a sense of warmth. Rich, coordinated fabrics used for the drapery, upholstery and bedding pick up the blue and carry it throughout the house. Crystal and glass add light and bling to each room, giving the home a sense of luxury.
Traditional elements abound in this 3000 sq ft Craftsman Style home. Extensive use of mouldings and wainscoting bring drama to the foyer. The homes’ many features include porcelain ‘hardwood’ flooring, a double sided gas fireplace, fitness room, a free-standing soaker tub and large walk-in shower in the ensuite.
