OAKRIDGE

This 600 sqft condo on Vancouver’s West Side is occupied by an 89-year old lady who has a very positive outlook on life. Not only does she like to surround herself with friends and family, she loves to entertain and help out people from all walks of life.  As she continued to slow down in her old age, Mrs. wanted a place where she would feel comfortable and inviting, not just to herself but to the multitude of guests that would make the procession to her home each and every day. She said that she wanted to create a nice and inspiring place to live and basically gave our design team carte blanche, being familiar with my firm’s body of work. We recommended going with neutral (off white) colors, and blue accents to make the space feel sunny and bright. Red is a particular favorite color of hers and she is continually fascinated by roses, which she had planted a lot of in her garden back when she lived on her prevcious heritage home on West 7th which she had grown too big for her over the years.  That’s why we selected to hang a huge photo of a red rose over her headboard. For a clean and fresh look, we incorporated a lot of white furniture with red accents to bring some energy and liveliness to her bedroom to match her boundless energy.
