Lisa Moody, the designer behind Grapevine Designs, was thrilled to finally have the opportunity to design and build a home for herself and her family. Tucked away on an acre in Surrey, BC, surrounded by creeks and farmhouses, the property is still just minutes away from major cities in the Vancouver area. What a nice mix of rustic locale with the conveniences of city life.
She chose a bright and happy palette that is intended to stand the test of time...
and her three active kids and the dog!
This fireplace is striking, with it's clean and modern hearth and tile,
reaching to the ceiling placed asymmetrical to the beams and ceiling lines.
The punches of color against all the white feels very fresh...and how about the butcher block placed at the one end of the island? How handy, while also breaking up the expanse of white.
Around from the kitchen, a bright office and homework area with a view out to the woods.
I could get used to this!
The lines of the ceilings and walls offer architectural interest throughout the house...
here in a sitting area in the master bedroom.
And so many details to love in the master bath. The tile lining the wall, the lower mirror at the vanity and the gorgeous cabinetry that reads more like furniture.
A girls room. Now how much do you like that the walls are white while the ceiling is painted blue?
Brilliant, allowing the Ikea fixture to pop against the pretty color.
And a boys room. Now this is a chalkboard wall taken to new heights, literally.
And what new home is complete without a laundry room/mudroom, making family life with kids and pets and all their clothes and messes just a little easier to handle?
Finally, an outdoor kitchen and covered area to relax...with a pool just beyond.
Lisa, I'd say you did a fantastic job, enjoy every minute in your new home!
