Warm Wood Ceiling

Rustic planks pop in a clean white space.

Architect and homeowner Steve McFarlane installed cedar ceilings throughout his minimalist North Vancouver home. "It helps give the house a continuous feeling," he says. This warm treatment also stands out beautifully thanks to crisp white walls and lighter floors.

An elegant look that will stand the test of time.

A classic palette of linen, grey and off-white gives this Calgary living room a soothing vibe, while a modern mix of seating and accessories keeps it from feeling stuffy. Designer Nam Dang-Mitchell also installed sophisticated, full-height drapery to highlight the room's soaring 14-foot-tall ceilings.
