Best in Show on the Boulevard is historic home in Vancouver BC that was in dire need of a upgrade! The clients came to Beyond Beige with the request to update a dated character home now that the kids were out of the ‘destroy’ stage. Beyond Beige Interior Design wanted to retain the historic feel of Best in Show on the Boulevard but ironically, much of the character had been removed after various DIY renovations. The team kept existing fireplace surroundings and leaded windows. Creating an illusion, the designers then added many new character elements to look like they had always been there. That being said, Beyond Beige Interior Design created new coffered ceilings, paneled walls, built-in millwork cabinetry and plate rails to feature the historic charm of the home. Blue accents were added throughout the home to give a sense of charm and class. Vancouver Interior Designer, Reisa Pollard loved designing in a home that had such deep rooted history. The tile detailing in the mudroom and bathroom created texture and pattern throughout. The result is a home that is full of character, guessing what’s original and what’s not could be a dinner party game. Overall, the clients were overjoyed to have the space still have that historic feel but also get a much needed upgrade!
