I’ve got a Canadian reader’s home to share with you all today, from Kris: I am an Art Director living in Vancouver and obsessed with midcentury modern design. Vancouver’s downtown westend has a number of amazing low rise buildings built in the late 1940’s that feature a separate penthouse on the roof. I was lucky to find one a year ago that I now call home or sometimes the “Sky Ranch”. My boyfriend Mick and I immediately painted everything white as we always do and began to fill the apartment with a mix of vintage finds like our Eero Saarinen Womb chair and Tulip table along with a pair of original Basket chairs. A few key Ikea pieces round out the mix. Our 500 sq ft rooftop deck is pimped out with Canadian designed Solair chairs in white along with Ikea’s classic Vago easy chair. Windmill palms and my favorite piece – a Weber charcoal BBQ grill – complete the mix. If Vancouver was right next to Ottawa I’d ask Kris to be BFFs. He has a penthouse apartment (rooftop no less), classic midcentury furniture, a large deck, my 2 favourite outdoor chairs…*sigh*.
