This Playful Vancouver Home Features Surprising Pops of Colour
After living in their 4,421-square-foot abode for a decade, these homeowners craved a change. The couple, parents of three young teen girls (and two golden doodles), wanted a colourful refresh, as well as a more modern kitchen, updated bathrooms and a basement recreation space their daughters would love. They entrusted Kirby Armstrong, principal at Devise Design Inc., with their vision. “Much of the house had been well kept,” says the designer, “so my team and I made a concerted effort to blend in our additions with the existing features to avoid it looking like a partial renovation.” They succeeded in spades... and just wait until you see the rec room.
