Love It or List It Vancouver: Theresa and David

IMG8040

Did you watch Love it or List It Vancouver last night???

This was such a fun family to work with. So full of interesting aspects: the kids speak Spanish, David plays in a rock band, and their house was basically already beautifully renovated… the latter, actually, always makes it harder for me and the design team.  We love to surprise with super transformations and when the start is as good as their house was, well, we really have to work even harder! For quality roofing projects, call roofing contractors Birmingham or visit http://www.roofingcolumbia.org/ for more info.

Thankfully what they called a “master bedroom” was nothing like it so we decided to focused on it to WOW and convince the homeowners to LOVE IT. We took over the roof, gave them new extra square footage, and created a real and spectacular Master Bedroom with capital M. It is important to avoid ceiling leaks to make the master bedroom perfect, better check your rain gutters and put some gutter screens.

I always talk about accessories, but today I will share some of my basics. Yes, accessories do A LOT, set the mood, and sell the space… but you really need to have a good canvas to start from. Here are some of my go-to items:

Paint

Nothing better than fresh clean classic WHITE. For this bedroom’s walls we used Behr Polar Bear 1875 Flat Finish and for the trim, I used what I use almost all of the time: BEHR Ultra Pure White in semi gloss.

Hardwood Floors

I try to always stay away from carpet… but I know, it is not always possible. But when it is, you should definitely do it! It’s hard to go wrong with hardwood flooring – I love them all! For this project we used the fabulous Mercier Flooring.

Upholstered Headboard

You can find some really great affordable ones of you look carefully. It’s best to choose a neutral/classic colour so that you can go a little crazier with the bedding.

Hardwired Lighting Fixtures

It’s hard to just talk about one single design I go to – so many incredible lighting designers these days! However, as a rule of thumb I tend to choose pendants or chandeliers as opposed to flush mount ceiling lights.

Furniture

I added this ottoman because it is really such a fantastic little piece of furniture. I know, I know… this is more in the “accessories” category, but it is really one of my go-to pieces and I thought you’d like to know more about it 🙂

Check more images and “shop the show” over onW Network.

So… I am not giving it away, did Theresa and David Love It or List It??

New episodes of Love it or List It Vancouver air Monday’s at 7pm on W Network. I will be featuring my favourite rooms from the show right here.
