Love It Or List It Vancouver: Ellie & Davey

I absolutely loved everything about Ellie and Davey’s 50’s style character home, including its million dollar view. However, the spectacular scenery outside their kitchen window wasn’t enough to keep them fully satisfied when it came to their desire to cook and entertain friends and family due to an incredibly cramped cooking space. Ellie is a Dietician and Davey is a Chef … so needless to say, they certainly have a love for food and spend a good portion of their time in the kitchen.

In addition to tight quarters, their master bedroom was literally RIGHT beside the kitchen on the main floor, which meant they were constantly keeping each other up thanks to their (very) opposite schedules, while Davey is up making late night meals, Ellie is rising early brewing her morning coffee. After 11 years (and many sleepless nights) they needed a change, and they needed it FAST. So, while Todd started hunting for a new place to call home closer to the city’s core, I knew what I had to do to ensure they stayed put because (between you and me) finding another view like this one would be nearly impossible (sorry Todd … lol)!

With that being said, we got down to business right away! Our main focus was to enlarge their kitchen and relocate their master bedroom, and we did JUST that! We replaced a window in order to extend the kitchen counters, tore down the wall in between their kitchen and their original master bedroom … which ended up leading us to a slight roadblock, forcing us to relocate the furnace and install a hot water on demand system … and VIOLA! A brand new open concept kitchen, I recommend contacting actionac.net when you need your furnace repaired, they are the best!

It goes without saying that every great dinner party starts in the kitchen, so why not give them a beautiful 9ft custom island with storage AND drawers on either side (PLUS seating for their guests!!)?! Perfection! From the new sink and faucet to the incredible countertops (and everything else in between), this kitchen really came together thanks to the magic of Merit Kitchens!

We kept their original dining table as it fit PERFECTLY in their new space and allows for cozy, intimate dinners. We added a punch of colour in their dining room by installing this beautiful design lighting fixture! I mean, how INCREDIBLE are these red pendant lights?!

In addition to this jaw-dropping kitchen, we wanted their friends and family to be in awe as soon as they walked through their front doors so we made sure to give their dated fireplace a fresh new look with incredible tile from Julian Tile complete with a modern hearth from Silestone by Cosentino! Who wouldn’t want to cozy up on this couch by the fireplace after an incredible homemade meal?!?! Sign me up!! Lol!!!!

Moving on to the basement … Ellie and Davey are sure to catch up on some much-needed z’s in their new BEAUTIFUL beachy master bedroom, complete with floating shelves on either side of their king size bed and his and hers closets. While I was able to give them the new master bedroom they’ve been dreaming of, I was unable to provide them with the ensuite they had also requested as unfortunately Davey’s food truck broke down and funds had to be pulled from the renovation to get it fixed up and back on the streets! But, ensuite aside, this zen bedroom is far, FAR away from the kitchen which means they’ll be counting sheep in no time!

  7. Michelle D says:

    Best ever episode. Best. Ever. Couple. The kitchen/dining/living room. God. I want it!!! Also the “You could really get down in here…I sounded like my mom” comment was possibly the most adorable Jillian host moment.

  8. chickadee says:

    I’ve been looking for a dresser exactly like the one in this bedroom. Could you please tell me where it’s from? It’s not listed on the HGTV buying guide. Help!

  9. Kristi Riblett Interiors says:

    So. I am a designer as well and only like the styles and approach of 2 designers on tv. Jillian and Fixer Upper. This house is perfect perfect perfect perfect. You’re adorable. I love watching you. But I get genuinely inspired by your interiors. Not over the top. Timeless. But current. And creative and unique. I love love love love love love this project. Your best one ever. ?

    What about the chairs in the living room?

  11. Ellie Bailey says:
