Living Room With A View

Keeping furniture away from windows maximizes light.

A suede ottoman designed by the owner — interior designer Nancy Boultbee — is a grounding element in this space, while white linen drapes help to brighten the room on Vancouver's grey days. Nancy uses fun, printed throw pillows to add pops of colour in her otherwise neutral palette. An antique opium bed that she picked up in Thailand frames a view of English Bay.
