North Vancouver View Condo Luxury Renovation, Transitional Style

When this client wanted an update to their North Vancouver condo it was immediately obvious that this renovation needed to be subtle and transitional, taking it’s design direction from the spectacular 360 degree panoramic view. Mountains, water, city, this stunning location boasts views of it all. We removed walls, selected neutral tones with subtle accents of green-ish gray and incorporated hardwood throughout. Interest is created through the combination of the natural textures of wood & stone juxtaposed with glass, leather & steel, all providing a neutral backdrop to the sensational view which is equally spectacular both day & night.

Decorating For Small Spaces, North Vancouver, BC

When this client came to us and asked that we provide him with a design for furniture and built-ins the only items existing in the town-house were the drum pendant in the living room and the wood coffee table. The existing small space was open concept with the kitchen, dining area and living room all flowing in to each other. The kitchen cabinets were white painted Shaker style but the client wanted a modern wood media unit built in his adjoining living room. Therefore, we unified the two spaces by combining the white Shaker design from the kitchen with contemporary styled horizontal grain oak shelves for the living room built-in.
