A comfy get-a-way in the middle of a busy city, Barbara and Al’s cottage in hip Yaletown Vancouver. Every space needs to have a vision and Barbara’s vision was a cozy place to people watch, a restful get-a-way from the usual. We have pulled a look together to give this young at heart couple exactly what they need and want from a small condo.
Stylus’ chocolate brown velvet tufted sofa. Over sized for lounging, extra pillows for comfort, a perfect starting point for this project. The sofa balances the living room with the dark leather chairs in the neighbouring dinning room.
Rich purple and cream adds colour and compliments the soft creamy gray with a slight purple under tone oc-28 collingwood amazingly. The high back adds support and functions as a nap chair. The push pins outlining the slender frame eventuates the chair’s structure and adds the element of vintage beauty.
Every cottage needs white painted furniture and using this antique looking cabinet as a T.V. stand is classy and unique. Also in a small space the extra storage is a bonus, using the drawers for excess cutlery, and cupboards underneath for china, glass ware and cocktail ingredients, this piece also doubles as a buffet.
Villa Beau offers many beautiful furniture selections and these mirrored nesting tables are just one. Having the ability to hide all in one or use each for a different task, the versatility and compactness of the nesting tables is unbeatable for saving space.
The living room needs ambiance and lighting, Pottery barn offers timeless fixtures that are sturdy and functional. This classic take on the arch lamp offers central light to the furniture cluster and an interesting focal point in the room. The blackened bronze ties together with the knobs of the T.V. cabinet and the base of the nesting tables.
Pulling together the whole Yaletown cottage look is a wool sisal area rug. Durable yet soft, the light coloured material is a bold contrast to the dark hardwood floor but pops the chocolate sofa from it’s similar tone to the hardwood. While it’s grounding the whole arrangement, also careful not to over power the other pieces.
In the Master bedroom, keeping the flow is best. Just a few simple yet beautiful selected items is all it needs to make the space elegant and relaxing.
Having a similar look to the buffet/T.V. piece in the living room allows for continuity and options to have the two joined in a collection later on. Difference being this dresser has a combo of bronze and crystal pulls.
Borghese 20″side tables for each side of the queen size bed creates a table top for a night time drink and a book, exactly what Barbara had asked for. Only the beauty of these tables have huge impact. Having no bulky storage and adding a touch of sparkle opens up the floor space. These elegant night stands will make any room romantic.
Do to lack of table space we needed to find an option for bedside lighting, Restoration Hardware wall sconce was what we needed. Just enough sparkle to combo with the table below them, and having a touch of crystal pulls it together with the dresser knobs.
Last but not least the Bling flush ceiling light to suggest a little glam for over the glass and nickel dinning table. Having a round table calls for a round ceiling fixture, the glass tear drops from the light fixture adds some reflection and interest to the whole dinning experience.
