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.
