Vancouver Vignette

Allow room for stand-alone furniture.

"Built-ins are great, but sometimes it's fun just to throw it all together and see what happens," says designer Wendy Williams Watt. In The Real Housewives of Vancouver star Mary Zilba's weekend home, temporary installations give her room to move and create. By leaving space for freestanding pieces like this desk, the focus can be on one beautiful lamp or vase.
