In the heart of Vancouver, at the 35th floor of a glass and concrete tower, takes form a project that blends modern design and functionality. The apartment, home to a young family consisting of an entrepreneurial couple with a child, is signed by interior designer Peter Wilds. His bold vision and ability to blend different styles and eras have transformed this space into a luminous and welcoming urban retreat, offering panoramic views of the city.

Natural light and unexpected elements combination

Natural light plays a central role in this project, guiding the choice of timeless materials and colours. Peter Wilds creates unexpected combinations of elements, yet harmonious and reassuring.

The Austrian matte oak floors establish a warm and tactile foundation, in contrast with the dynamic terrazzo and organic patterned tile that decorate the bathrooms. The result is a serene harmony of white and cool grey tones, providing an ideal backdrop for the playful punches of black within the kitchen plumbing details and the sculptural lighting suspended above the circular oak dining table.

In the living area, a soft sofa is accompanied with a custom diamond-tufted ottoman, an antique pink occasional chair, and two sculpturally shaped coffee tables.

Style and Functionality

Embracing the challenge of integrating a considerable amount of storage without compromising the open space concept, the designer has developed effective solutions to keep the house tidy and spacious. Among the storage elements present in the apartment, there is a custom designed 4-meter-long cabinet in the dining area and a floor to ceiling shoe cabinet in a corner of the hallway. Furthermore, in the principal bedroom, an ensuite closet is discreetly positioned behind the classic and elegant diamond-tufted headboard.

Also in the kitchen, expanded through the removal of a seldom-used veranda, the furniture selection is driven by the project's theme: ensuring functionality without compromising style.
