Modern Appeal - Designer Nancy Riesco's Family Home

I came across this hip family home in the June 2013 issue of Canadian House & Home (which I must mention is one of my all-time favorite shelter magazines).  The homeowner is the ultra-talented interior designer Nancy Reisco of Riesco & Lapres Interior Design based out of Vancouver.  She and her family happened upon this 2,300 sq ft house, a spec home designed by Evoke International Design Inc., while they were planning the renovation of their 5,000 sq ft tudor.  I'm so glad they bit when the opportunity hit, because what a glowing jewel she's created in this modern, colorful, and totally kid-friendly home!

(dining space...can you believe those awesome windows?)

(dining room gallery her eclectic art collection)

 (kitchen...the stools, the pendants, the waterfall countertop, oh my!)

(living room...again, the light in this house is so spectacular)

 (daughter's room...almost like a tree house, with a really cool built-in desk space)

(son's room, bunk beds have never looked cooler)

Now, some exterior photos from Evoke International Design, Inc.:

(front view - house on left...a minimal design that still maintains such warmth)

(back view - house on right...those windows are sublime!)

The natural light has to be my most favorite thing about this home.  I also love how Nancy Riesco has made white-walled rooms sing with the perfect amount of color and carefully selected furniture.  It's like a livable art gallery!

Do you love this house?  If so, which room is your favorite?  Don't forget to check out Nancy's portfolio of other home's she has designed {here}.

Thanks for this, you've given me inspiration for my son's room. I was going to build in a little loft above his bed, which is 'way cool' but is so structural and permanent, and actually creates problems with lighting in the room. I also, I don't know it would take him to the next stage. The bunk beds are great with built in shelving and wood and white mix. You've given me inspiration for a re-think! Jen x
