A Contemporary Vancouver Home Designed By Ami McKay Is Warmed Up With Natural Elements

More often than not, a designer’s role is to create a dream space for clients. Occasionally, however, they’re pressed into service in other ways. So when designer Ami McKay of Pure Design Inc. received a call asking if she would serve as a sounding board for a prospective client, she was happy to help. The client and her husband were renovating a home in Vancouver’s Kitsilano neighbourhood with a traditional exterior. Inside, though, they wanted a thoroughly modern look. To get the balance right, she turned to Ami, whom she’d been following on Instagram. She loved how the designer created contemporary spaces that never felt sterile; clean lines and warm colours were Ami’s calling cards.

When the couple was ready to finally move in to their new, “old” home, the holidays were just around the corner. It was time for Ami to don a different hat. To ready the house for the Christmas season, she brought her signature less-is-more magic to the forefront with natural holiday decor.
