How Do You Strike a Balance Between Modern Design and Warmth? Ask This Vancouver Home

There’s a certain style of modern homes that can come across as cold. You know the type: vast empty rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed concrete ceilings and spare, white walls. When done wrong, the design can seem sterile, not unlike living in a spaceship or a Bond villain’s mansion. Vancouver-based designer Amanda Evans was commissioned to design a West Vancouver home for a family of four that was both contemporary and clutter-free, but still warm. To capture that balance, Amanda turned to natural materials and local designs. The final effect is both cozy and stylish with a distinct West Coast flair.
