This Vancouver special built in the early 60’s was in serious need of some tlc.  We took this site down to a shell and created a completely new layout..  With the clean-lined architecture lending itself to contemporary design we made sure to incorporate lots of rustic and traditional elements to appeal to this young couples aesthetic.

“It’s very clear that Gillian has a serious eye for style. Peter and I were really clear with what we wanted: a house where we could entertain our family and friends, where they would feel comfortable putting their feet up. At the same time, we wanted to bring both of our styles into the mix. I am a little more girly (think clean white kitchens) and Peter loves the rustic Italian vibe. One thing that we both agreed on was the fact that we loved a farmhouse/modern feel. Gill took all of that and turned it into the most perfect moodboard we could imagine. It was exactly what we wanted: neutral colours, clean lines, but still warm and comfortable. It was our style, elevated. Now, we lovingly refer to our style as Modern Farmhouse Glam, as coined by GSD. When we look around our home, we are reminded of the amazing ideas and small touches that made a huge difference in the overall look, and we’re so grateful we got to work with one of Vancouver’s most up and coming designers”
