Style at Home
Designed to maximize natural light, the home’s walls of windows are framed by the slope of its vaulted ceilings. Soft neutrals and natural materials for the sofa and floor coverings are a counterpoint to the airy glass coffee table. A view of quintessential North Shore plantings pairs vitality to the subdued decor.
“Though its offset pitched roof and walls of windows may be typical of Mid-Century-Modern homes in Palm Beach, to find a house of this style in Vancouver is a rarity,” says designer Vanessa Stark, of the home her clients have lived in since 2000. “For that reason, we wanted to retain as many of its signature elements as possible,” says the designer, who balanced that goal with giving the homeowners – a family of four with two teens – what they needed most: a space retrofitted with modern conveniences and a fresh, updated aesthetic.
