Love It Or List It Vancouver: Dawn & Brian

I fell in love with Dawn and Brian’s backyard. It is very rare to have that much greenery and land (river running through included) within close proximity to the city AND in a great neighbourhood. I thought no matter what the transformation they would NEVER want to leave!!!

Inside the house, things got a little bit trickier. Every room was sectioned off making the layout choppy and inconvenient for their lifestyle. They had an extremely small kitchen and no shower in the ensuite resulting in Dawn having to share a bathroom with all of the men in the house … sooo not ideal!!! They had a huge list for me with some major constructional set backs, which only allowed me to focus on the most important items. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to tick off as many things that they would have liked to within their budget. But, I still cannot believe they decided to List It after that amazing kitchen I gave them!!!! Good work Todd, good work.

The kitchen definitely took the cake in this episode for me. I love how bright, light and open it became thanks to the help of Merit Kitchens. The cabinets turned out beautifully with the black and white contrast.  They definitely freshened up the entire space.

We replaced their floors with this gorgeous, natural, wide plank, hard wood in a matte finish from Mercier. I like using lighter floors to help bring a space back to life. Plus, lighter hardwood hides the dust bunnies just a little bit more lol!!

We managed to open the mudroom up a bit by bumping the wall back. Since I couldn’t give them the deck upstairs to open up to the backyard, I wanted to make this entrance/exit extra special. We were even able to move the laundry OUT of the kitchen and add in a perfectly sized Kohler sink.

    Jilly this kitchen is EVERYTHING! I am OBSESSED with that back splash. We’re gutting our kitchen and I’m struggling to find something that bridges the gap between our grey lowers and coconut colored uppers, and this back splash would do it. What is called? Where is it from? Who can I call to get it in my house too! 🙂

    Thanks bunches! 🙂

  2. Laura Curry says:

    Where did you source that gold and mirror bar/console table? Love it and everything else. Will these shows be on HGTV in the US? Love your transformations.

  3. Danielle Connor says:

    Jillian!! WHERE are those counter chairs from?!?! I’ve been looking everywhere for chairs that I like and am having zero luck! But those are GORGEOUS!!

  4. Brigitte says:

    I would love to know where your dress is from! Thank you for both the home & fashion inspiration!

  5. Jaspreet says:

    Jillian, where did you get that grey dress from? Please share with us if possible. You look beautiful.

  6. Jackie Jones says:

    Where is that beautiful flower pillow from? Not listed in resources

  7. kt says:

    please please tell us where those counter chairs are from?!?!

  8. Cheron Cabay says:

    Oh my gosh I’m just watching this episode now and when Brian said “or the contractor” I wanted to throw something at the TV! What a jerk! As if a different contractor would have a different result with inspections and permits! Ooooooo so mad at this jerk! I hope he sees this! And seriously he’s delusional about what quality workmanship cost. Buddy, you get what you pay for! SMH!!!! The house is beautiful for the budget that was given. Yeah, some things had to be chopped!

  9. Carolina says:

    I love it!! Please, could you tell me where shop are the tools???
    Thanks
