Nature-Inspired Living Room

Homeowners Krista and Chris Cooper renovated this Whistler chalet to accommodate their family of four.

Warm, neutral fabrics, durable wood furniture and a textured rug are dog- and kid-friendly. "I love having kids running around and we encourage all of our friends to bring their pets," says Krista. An open-concept living-dining area allows them to spend more quality time together.
