Renovated White Kitchen

Update a space without losing the home's character.

This classic Craftsman home in the Kerrisdale neighbourhood of Vancouver needed some sprucing up, and interior designer Nancy Riesco was happy to help. She wanted to channel an urban British style, so she replaced the black and white checkerboard floor tiles with these warm wood planks, and painted everything out white, except for the pale grey stove backsplash and island. Industrial hits like the stools and pendant lights offer contrast to the classic cabinets and beadboard ceiling.
