We received an email from Amber of Māk Interiors, about an extensive renovation project she took on of a heritage home in Vancouver’s South Granville area. The home had great bones, but needed to be completely gutted to open up the tiny rooms and make the home more spacious and family friendly. It is a wonderful example of how you can modernize a traditional/historic home without losing its character. And I am all for the if-you-can’t-make-it-work-gut-it philosophy.
Here are a couple of before photos.
And this is what it looks like after Amber had her way with it. 🙂 You can read more about it here.
Very nice. I can collect many ideas from this home.
Oh what a fantastic job! Bravo, Amber. Love every shot.
Thanks everyone! So happy to have the project featured.
S: the kitchen lights are called 'Everly' from Kichler Lighting – very affordable!
What does it mean a heritage home? Something like period house?
heritage = OLD 😉
Fabulous. Wish I could see it in the flesh.
That black door is gorgeous! Can you please tell me what color paint/finish did you used?
Fingers crossed for the source of the sofa in the living area adjacent to the kitchen. This home is breathtaking and has changed my own design direction for our home. This is the couch of my dreams.. colour, everything. Many thanks!
Thanks, Kim! I appreciate your reply 🙂
Amazing! Anyone knows where the kitchen lamps come from?
