Contemporary Meets Eclectic

 

A beautiful example of West Coast modern architecture – recently featured in the hit ABC TV show “Mistresses” & W Network “Love It or List It”.  The home is an eclectic mix of vibrant colours, objects and stories.  A warm yet sleek and sophisticated space with extensive use of concrete and glass which helps bring the outdoors in.

ZWADA home in The Wall Street Journal June 3, 2016

We were recently interviewed by The Wall Street Journal for an article on laundry rooms. They were impressed with the interior design work showcased in the Roseburn Estate project from 2009.
 

 

 


 
“As laundry rooms move up in the house, looks are getting more important. In the laundry room of their 3,600-square-foot, six-bedroom home outside Edmonton, Alberta, Dawn and Mark Asbell used the same slate flooring as on the rest of the ground floor and outside deck. The room’s taupe-colored cabinets mirror those in the kitchen. The idea, says Don Zwarych, co-owner of Vancouver-based Zwada home Interiors & Design, which led the 2009 project, was to create flow and consistency throughout the house.

Ms. Asbell also has a double set of washers and dryers, wraparound counter space and a sink with an old-fashioned washboard for scrubbing. Five kids, three of them still at home, busy with sports and sometimes forgetful of hanging up towels, help amass 20 to 25 loads of laundry a week. An attractive, high-performance laundry room makes the chore more enjoyable, says Ms. Asbell, 51. In all, the laundry-room project cost an estimated $14,000.”

Refined Contemporary – Ensuite Bathroom Renovation

A beautiful bathroom in the British Properties designed years ago by a legendary Vancouver designer, was beginning to show its age and in need of being renewed.  The owners wanted to ensure that the refurbished ensuite was not only practical and functional, but relaxing, comfortable and tranquil.
 
Without altering the spatial layout of the room, the strategy was to update, modify and refine the existing space through the introduction of new elements. Harmony and a clean look was achieved throughout by balancing colour and materials.
 
The space is filled with luxurious amenities, including a free-standing tub, double vanity, open glass shower and heated flooring. The result is an ensuite bathroom that feels more spacious, streamlined and elegant.
