This phrase is used a great deal here on Vancouver Island. What exactly does it mean? Well, for each of us it may mean something slightly different. It can be our design style or our food choices and the way we live our daily lives. As an interior designer, we hear this term a fair bit when our clients are looking for a certain style that characterizes where we live.
For us it means natural colours, lots of light and the use of wood, stone, glass and natural fibres in the products we choose. This does not have to be rustic by any means. The finishes and colours we select have a very timeless and classic feel in the way they are interpreted.
Here is an example of what we are currently working on. It displays the natural colour palette that is both warm and organic, yet the materials and the way they are interpreted offer an elegant and polished design style.
We hope you enjoy finding your west coast style and what that means to you.
