Two years ago Sabrina fell in love with this home in her childhood neighbourhood. With the pressure of the realty market in Vancouver, as soon as it was for sale they decided to buy it without Kevin even seeing it!!! But, Sabrina was so in love with it that that she was blindsided by the potential flaws. I did the EXACT same thing when I bought my home in Kelowna so I know exactly what they were going through.
The house may have seemed immaculate after my first walk through … but homes that don’t have anything “visually wrong” scare me!!! I am so happy I was able to come out on top and create a connection to the home for Kevin and allow Sabrina to fall in love with it all over again …
We created a warm and cozy ambiance in the living room by adding in a gorgeous new Valor Fireplace. We rearranged the furniture and made the space functional for them … who wouldn’t want to hang out in this gorgeous new space!?
Although I couldn’t keep Sabrina’s coveted sun room … we managed to pull off a pretty skookum covered patio. My favourite part of all was the fire pit from Solus Décor!!! In my opinion, they will get WAY more use out of this space than they had originally thought they would.
Last but definitely not least … We tied up their garage and added in a Stor-X Organizing System. This helped hide all of the clutter and keep everything organized giving the garage the illusion of extra space!!!
A big thank you as always to Janis Nicolay for the gorgeous photos!!
