A message from Asha

Standing outside this Georgian-inspired home with its beautiful sloping black roofline, you know you are in for a treat. The two-storey, leaded glass diamond window is eye catching, allowing a glimpse into the grandeur of the home inside.

In the foyer, oversized wall sconces illuminate the lofty 12-foot ceiling while, underfoot, herringbone wood floors with marble inlay borders beckon you to take in the sparkling décor and exquisitely styled elements of this modern home.

Setting the scene in hues of purple and pink, the home is transformed into a chic gathering place during the holiday season. The entire main floor is adorned in tastefully appointed décor provided by GardenWorks. Fresh flowers and greenery from Granville Island Florist unify and complete the theme.

The living room hosts the formal tree with its mix of large baubles and delicate ornaments creating a beautiful backdrop for gift-opening on Christmas morning.

Upstairs, the primary bedroom’s floor-to-ceiling beveled mirrors add opulence to a paneled feature wall while the soft peach and grey palette keeps the space calm amidst the glamour. Next door, a little girl’s room in shades of pink ensures a happy place where sweet dreams always come true.

Grandeur gives way to whimsy in the family room where a playful balloon tree sets the tone for the family to relax, laugh and enjoy each other’s company.  

Changing décor as the seasons change is a year-round passion for this family.  At Christmas, their goal is to incorporateeach family member’s unique taste in a warm and loving environment. This is truly a home where everyone feels happy and welcome.
