This 1,701 sqft. three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom townhouse had just been purchased by a young couple to start their new married life. My design team was called to bring the their home up to date as it had been built 17 years earlier and was starting to show its age. Located on picturesque Marinaside Crescent in False Creek in downtown Vancouver this home is a stone’s throw away from the Roundhouse Community Centre, the seawall and the vibrant Yaletown dining and shopping scene. The home has double-height ceilings and windows in living room for that spacious New York feel. We installed new hardwood floors, light fixtures and a more neutral color scheme on the ground floor to enhance that light and airy feeling. The corner fireplace in the living room was also removed to make room for the couple’s contemporary tastes in furniture and art which were sourced locally and from the U.S.  A nod to the couple’s Asian heritage was used throughout via the abaca lamp shades, woven grass mirror and dining seats.
