Step Inside a West Coast Artist's Eclectic Family Home
When artist Michael Soltis furnished the Tsawwassen, BC, home he shares with his wife Ann and their two children, he applied a painterly approach. “I feel a tenacious need to create something unique, whether it’s a painting or a house,” he says. “Ann and I never worry about things ‘matching’ so our design is totally eclectic and random.” Indeed, the 2,500-square-foot new-build abode is a compelling composition of zingy colours, whimsical accessories and engaging vignettes brimming with artistic license.
