Airy Principal Bedroom

An eclectic, eco-friendly space.

Every room in this sprawling rancher on Skaha Lake was built with the environment in mind. Renewable, durable materials take centre stage in the bedroom, like the cedar framed sliding glass panels. The panels retain heat in the winter and can be opened completely in the summer to allow for breezes to cool the house. This eliminates the need for air conditioning, which can account for 40 to 50 per cent of an Okanagan household's energy consumption. A mix of old and new elements, like a modern bed and antique armoire, add character.
