This post is an exciting one. We’re finally ready to give you a full photo tour of our little house on Vancouver Island. The first gallery below shows photos from every major room, except the guest room. These were taken by our builder’s professional photographer and they give you a great idea of how light and airy the house feels. The second set of photos were taken by me 4 months after we moved in, so you can see some of the rooms furnished. Let’s face it, textiles make a room cozy! Below that I’ve included a few short video reels.
If you’ve been following along on our journey, you’ll see we haven’t strayed much from our original vision and inspiration. We had very specific colours picked out for both the interior and exterior. The only colours we switched up were the Van Courtland Blue for the front door (changed to Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black) and the Waterloo for the main bedroom featured wall (changed to Benjamin Moore Water’s Edge Blue). The Benjamin Moore Beach Glass for cabinets and shiplap turned out amazing! The textiles and lighting also remained true to our initial choices and we think they are just the right amount of cozy.
My favourite rooms are the ensuite bathroom and the garden room. The original vision for the ensuite bathroom is here, and for the garden room is here. You can compare the plans with the ‘real life’ project in the photos below. Our home exterior turned out beautiful! We are lovin’ the soft look of Alabaster with all the black accents.
Without further ado, here’s the big reveal!
Lifestyle Photos From Yours Truly
You’ll see in the gallery below we added lots of textiles like pillows, throws, drapery, window blinds, textured lighting fixtures, bench seat cushions, baskets, welcome mats, textured art pieces, and plants to make our home feel welcoming and cozy. Everything from light fixtures to paint colours, and cabinet pulls to floors and tiles, were styled by us. That’s what makes our house home!
So now you’ve had the grand tour of our little house on Vancouver island. Feel free to comment below. And stay tuned for more photos and video as the garden and interior spaces evolve. There are also some furniture refinishing projects on the horizon if you enjoy seeing transformations.
Have a beautiful day everyone!
