Love It or List It Vancouver: Kelly & Steve

Kelly and Steve’s home needed to break-free from itself – desperately! We often see homes like this: plenty of square-footage but so partitioned that the rooms feel cramped and unwelcoming. It wasn’t easy reconfiguring the spaces, we had to move the laundry room over and make room for a new, spacious kitchen – but we (and the homeowners) think it was well worth it !

Jillian and the design team love white kitchens – they’re elegant, timeless and have a knack for making rooms feel bigger. This kitchen turned out so well – it’s new location opposite the backyard doors filled it with light from the garden, brightening up what was a dark and unwelcoming space.
LOLV EP2040 - Kitchen 2
Troico Home Solutions supplied us with a really lovely kitchen, a simple shaker door front painted in “Chantilly Lace” gave the space the “fresh spring morning” feeling it so desperately needed. A simple yet fun backsplash of diamond-shaped porcelain tiles in white gave the kitchen some depth with a little quirk.

Kelly & Steve told us early on that it isn’t uncommon for them to have upwards of 20 people over for dinner, they both come from large families, and so we knew that the dining table would need to fit a lot of bums on seats! Folk Art Interiors supplied us with a gorgeous custom-made “picnic inspired” table and bench – lots of room for family and friends to gather together!

Laundry rooms are always fun to do – you can go a little bold with finishes as it’s a room you should look forward to spending time in but you also don’t need to see it everyday. We think we were able to give Kelly & Steve a laundry room they may very well host cocktail parties in – it’s so lovely! Thanks to Crown Wallpaper, a simply stunning and fresh Foxglove print gives this room charm and brightness. We had our faithful painters paint the ceiling to echo the blue in the wallpaper, tying everything together.

This home needed light. With the new white kitchen, the cheerful wall paper and the open-space the entire extended family can get together and to mingle through the spaces – laundry room included!

A big thank you as always to Janis Nicolay for the gorgeous photo’s!!
