This Light-Filled Vancouver Home Takes Design Cues From its Scenic Surroundings

They say it takes two to make a thing go right, and Wes Thurn (a self-described interior stylist) and Daphne Nielsen, owner of Once A Tree Furniture, couldn’t agree more. The Vancouver-based duo have worked together for over 15 years creating beautiful interiors, and their latest project doesn’t stray from the course. This 4,500-square-foot home in West Vancouver was designed to suit its empty-nester owners, who craved a modern design with neutral colours. Daphne and Wes also wanted to pay homage to the space’s stunning surroundings. “The ocean-front lot is exceptional, so I had to consider the outstanding views from every angle,” says Wes. “It was imperative that the colours, lighting and furnishings blend in with this environment.” They do, naturally. Here’s an inside look.
