Large, ocean-view windows and hits of bold colour and pattern combine in a suburban gem. Interior designer Lael O'Brien leads us through her West Vancouver home perched atop an old cottage lot with lush gardens. Tour the art gallery-like entryway, open-concept dining/living room, kitchen with bright turquoise tiles, dark and dramatic den and fun kids' bedrooms. Plus, designer Tara Fingold shows off her sophisticated family house, featuring reclaimed barn wood walls balanced with formal mouldings, herringbone floors and white accents. Lynda Reeves also reveals what makes the perfect bed, from the right height to layered textiles.
