This beautiful West Coast Modern Home is located in White Rock, BC. We worked very closely with the homeowners of this 5,500 square foot project throughout the entire process. We were involved from the initial construction phase, furniture selection and installation until art was on the walls, flowers in vases and cushions in place. The overall vision of this space was to bring the outdoors in by using a neutral but dramatic palette that showcased natural elements and complemented the overall architectural design of the home by Keith Baker. The homeowners were hoping to achieve a modern but warm aesthetic. It was important for the spare to feel like a comfortable, evolved family home. The materials pallet sets the stage to do just that, by offering many opportunities to add subtle pops of colour and display areas to showcase the homeowner’s treasured items.
With beautiful views to the ocean and beyond, we were involved in this 3,300 square foot new construction project from the architectural drawings phase, to move-in ready for the family of four. Our clients were open to colour and really wanted to create a bright space. The goal was to embody a modern design that felt warm and inviting. They are an active family in need of a space that utilized durable materials yet still followed their desired clean and modern look. By creating nodes and accents of colour, while still maintaining a streamline design elsewhere, we were able to give the family the space they were dreaming of.
After living in her home for 30+ years, this homeowner decided she was in need of an update. To begin, we took this 1,680 square foot house down to the studs and lifted it, which meant the ability to completely re-work the floorplan. The client considered this her “forever home”, which gave us the freedom to completely cater the design to her needs. In addition to this, she lives with two large dogs which meant we needed to select durable materials. We planned for custom dog gates to be installed with the downstairs railings, eliminating ugly baby gates and creating a functional addition to that wouldn’t take away from the overall design of the space. The client is a passionate cook, and decided she wanted two kitchens. This was also due to the fact that if in the future she were to live on one level of the home, her caretaker could live on the other. We installed grab bars with lovely detail in both of the bathrooms to allow for her to age in place. This home was an old bungalow style that was in need of more character. We were able to honor this by adding leaded glass details, a tongue and groove ceiling with faux beams adding much character to the space.
This project came to us through a builder we work with. Our scope included the selection of finishes, lighting and furniture for this 5,320 square foot home being built to sell. This meant we had to consider a wider range of buyers when making selections. Budget also played a key role in this selection process, which meant we chose to select the more expensive materials for areas with the largest impact.
This 2,200 square foot home was in need of a bright and friendly renovation to accommodate the family of four for the years to come. There were several major changes that required restructuring aspects of the home. Some other goals were to expand on storage and create a family-friendly basement, which meant completely restructuring the space. Another large change was to move the stairs to accommodate for a proper entryway and more room upstairs. Plenty of built-in millwork allowed for the design to maintain its clean look, while still providing the clients with the high functioning home they were in need of.
This is a ski-in, ski-out, luxury rental property in Whistler. Our clients came to us with a townhouse that we ultimately ripped down to the foundation and rebuilt. They wanted a space that had a modern feel, but was also comfortable for guests renting the property. We used wood detailing to add warmth to the home, but also kept a modern, streamlined style throughout. Furthermore, they needed a space that was durable and could handle guests coming in with skiing equipment and boots. We incorporated quality finishes including granite flooring and leather furniture.
After living in her Kits townhome for more than three decades, our client was craving change. While she was living in a world with a dark filter on the interior of her home, a bright and clean makeover would bring in the light she never knew she needed. A transformation from top to bottom was necessary and the results made for a nearly unrecognizable home. We completely gutted the space, taking out walls, adding structural beams and a few new windows. Once construction was complete we finished the space by adding furniture, decor and art.
Once a traditional staircase and carpeted floors, the foyer soon became the welcoming gesture the home so desperately needed. Replacing the railing with a fresh face of glass and repeated whitewashed oak expanded this entrance to its full potential. Underneath constantly drawn curtains lay the homes largest source of natural light. Once uncovered, an underutilized space grew into what is now an open hub for entertaining and lounging alike. Creating a more casual dining area was achieved through the use of a custom banquette and built in wine rack, of course. The kitchen was cut off from the surrounding areas and was asking to be included. Removing a wall and expanding the kitchen now allows for the perfect wine party. Quartz counters and bright neutrals reflect the style of the rest of the main floor, complimenting the new open-concept living area.
Our clients came to us because they wanted to integrate their large traveled art collection into their small space. They also wanted to maximize the use of their 890 sq. ft. space by utilizing multi-functional furniture to create a bright open concept space. We started by replacing the carpeted flooring with light hardwood to make the space feel brighter. In addition, we selected furniture pieces with clean lines, light finishes, and scaled to fit the space. We wanted the to furniture to be functional, durable, and comfortable. Ultimately we wanted to use the furniture to create a neutral canvas to highlight the art collection, not take away from it. The condo has large windows on almost every wall, which is great for light, but limits wall space for art. Our solution was to curate their art collection, and integrate it into the living and office space by grouping the pieces into striking gallery walls. We love the playfulness of the space and our clients were thrilled with the final results because they were able to reflect their personalitiies and integrate in travel memories into their condo making it a happy home.
Our client came to us because they wanted to update their standard 90’s condo. To make to 650 sq. ft. space feel larger, we conducted major renovations. We started by removing the wall between the kitchen and the living room to open up the space, as well as selected light hardwood flooring to make the space feel brighter. In addition, we included floor to ceiling drapery to make the ceilings feel taller. We also added floor to ceiling marble backsplash in the kitchen to define the main living space. Our client was pleased with the final results because we not only made the space more in-line with her style, but we did so with budget-friendly products and materials.
A family of four living in Steveston was debating whether or not they wanted to move, yet the family friendly neighborhood of their current townhome was what swayed their decision to stay put. Instead of relocating, the family decided to renovate their current home. They needed a space that reflected their dynamic and lively personalities. Their current design was dark and outdated, opening up the space added the brightness and function they needed. We completed renovated the main floor of their townhome, opening up their kitchen to the dining area, smoothing the ceiling, adding pot lighting, and re-working the overall layout. The main floor also included a powder that we freshened up and upstairs we renovated the main bathroom. We worked with the client on the renovation, furniture and styling of the space.
One of the homeowners had lived in this space for a number of years, so when the couple decided to move in together, they chose to stay in this existing space and bring us in to customize it to fit their needs. With 1,450 square feet to work with, a main goal was to create a large walk-in closet, rather than the existing standard condo wardrobe. This required the removal of what was previously a den. By doing so, it created a new access point to the second bedroom, now known as the man-cave. Overall, they wanted a complete update for the space, which meant new tile floors throughout and a new fireplace and fireplace configuration. The design also involved full height storage in the dining area and the addition of a feature bar space. The large ensuite bathroom had an underutilized bathtub and was in need of more storage. By replacing the bathtub with a large shower we were able to do so, as well as create a much more usable space for the client.
Our clients came to us after renovating their condo. They had already selected many of the main furniture pieces but needed some professional help to completely finish the space. We started by a quick site visit and conversation about what they were hoping to achieve within a budget. After the first visit, we created mood boards of the space and presented the direction that we felt appropriate. After a few tweaks and final approval from the client, we spent a day at the condo fluffing pillows, placing artwork, and adding well thought out accessories to make the space come to life!
East Van Laneway
We worked with PHW Homes to create a home for a young family that built a laneway house on their parent's property. They needed to pack as much functionality into their small living space as possible, especially the kitchen! One of the homeowners is a super passionate baker and needed the kitchen to support her craft. We re-worked the architectural drawings to maximize the function of the kitchen and add a space to fit a wall oven and built in microwave, which most people will agree is tight in a laneway! The result is an amazing kitchen that doesn't feel too large for the space. We selected a beautiful engineered hardwood floor as the base to the light and airy interior palette.
