This House in Fall River, Nova Scotia Has the Best Bedrooms Ever

Interior designers Victoria Armour and Natalie Owens of Halifax-based Stil James were thrilled when they lucked on a project in Fall River, Nova Scotia. No, it wasn’t the natural splendour of the lakeside community that excited them — though working in that setting helped. It was the client’s gumption: “They gave us the go ahead to go bold and inject colour,” says Natalie of the 5,000-square-foot house that had not been renovated since the 1990s. The Martime crowd “is quite conservative when it comes to colour palette and aesthetic,” says Natalie, but these homeowners were up for anything. And so the designers chose a city vibe, layering in strong hues such as deep mustard and rust orange and installing a walnut kitchen, which was the homeowners’ request. Here’s how this house went from vanilla to va-va-voom. Bonus: check out the video of this bold space.
