House Tour - Lisa Moody of Grapevine Designs

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!

  5. Thanks for your kind words. The poster came from HOMESENSE. But it is avaialable online through All Posters:

  6. Wow. That is fantastic. I love the oversized light fixtures in the children's rooms. What a beautiful home.

  7. What a beautiful home! I really loved all the light fixtures!

  8. Wow! Lisa's laundry room is nicer than many kitchens!!!! Sweet! :)

  9. Every detail of Lisa's home is so beautiful!!

  10. What a gorgeous home. That kitchen is a great space as well as the outdoor area. The whole home feels very light, airy and fun.

  11. Love this home, Lisa did such an amazing job!

  12. What a beautiful home. she did a great job! Love home tours. I just went to the Santa Barbara design home. So much fun to see.

  13. What a gorgeous and cheerfully designed home. I love that it is so family friendly AND high style. My favorite type of house tour!!

    Is it possible to find out where the pendant light in the laundry is from? I have been looking for that EXACT light without luck. Thank you so much!!

  14. sbaker, I wrote Lisa regarding the fixture and this is her response:

    It is a Robert Abbey light fixture. We have an account with Robert Abbey as does many lighting stores.

    Perhaps you could email her to see if she could help you with an order.

  15. So much beautiful attention to detail - love all of the lighting!!

  16. Yes, I love the overall neutral palette with the pops of color throughout. It is very versatile, current, and will be easy for her to play with later on if she wishes to experiment with new trends/ideas.

  17. It's absolutely gorgeous. I like that she made a lot of unique choices -but in little ways, like the off-center fireplace, and the butcher block on only one end of the island- that make the house feel fresh and unique, but at the same time it feels really classic like it will never go out of style. I really love it!!

  18. Beautiful home...that master bath is incredible. I would so love to have an outdoor room like that.

  19. Wow! This home is beautiful! I love the tall ceiling in the kids room! The ceiling color is perfect! And the kitchen!!! It's gorgeous! Great tour :)
