Velji is look­ing to this tra­di­tional- eclec­tic liv­ing room, de­signed by Kyla Bid­good of Bid­good

and Co. in Vic­to­ria, as an in­spi­ra­tion for fu­ture de­signs.

“If you’re lucky enough to live in a char­ac­ter house or build­ing, ad­dress­ing the beau­ti­ful mould­ings and ar­chi­tec­tural de­tails is key! Kyla and her team have cho­sen to mod­ern­ize this her­itage house by paint­ing the mould­ings, walls and ceil­ing out in white. This al­lows the shad­ows to do their job of show­cas­ing the de­tail­ing in an el­e­gant and sub­tle way. An­other way they’ve in­cor­po­rated mod­ern el­e­ments into this home is through the art­work. The paint­ing above the fire­place (by Van­cou­ver artist Lau­ren My­croft) is an un­usual and stun­ning ad­di­tion to a tra­di­tional room.”
