About a month ago I was contacted by family from Vancouver who had just recently purchased their new home in Kelowna’s Mission Area. This beautiful home is in a great location, but definitely needed some updating when it came to it’s interior colours!
The Yellow-ish Tan main colour, with Cranberry feature walls had certainly seen better days.
They smiled at each other in a sneaky sort of way, and it was at this point I knew something was up… they tried to trip me up by responding…
“We’re not going to tell you. It’s a surprise. We want you to guess! ”
Ha! This was a first! I laughed. “Well this should be interesting!” It was at this point I realized all I had to go on were a couple photos they had shown me of some contemporary modern furniture they liked…
I took a minute, and then said: “Well if I were to guess, so far I would say you both seem to be drawn to a clean modern look. And if we’re going to go more modern with the space how would you feel about: Soft Silvers, Ashy Greys – Maybe soft Shade on Shade Whites?”
Their eyes lit up and they smiled at each other again, (Which totally gave them away!) I knew I was on to them 🙂 They liked my “guess” so to say, so we began work on narrowing down specific colours and building the colour plan.
This was a very dark in this home. So our plans to lighten things up worked perfectly for their existing lighting.
We ended up with our top 6 colours picks. We carefully considered each and narrowed down our selections colour by colour to our favourite three beautiful soft silvery shades which we used throughout the house.
Next I heard from them was an email after they first saw their new colour palette in action: “Thnx rael! You rock !!! ”
No surprises with the end results, just a great transformation!
