When Dan and Daylon Payne set out to renovate their family home in North Vancouver, they decided to take on a lot of the design work themselves. After lengthy research, they refined their preferences into a clear vision of how they wanted their home to look.
Then they teamed up with Hasler Homes to make that vision a reality with many design choices already in mind. From there, they were able to populate their home with the right lighting to create the rustic modern look they set their hearts on.
They wanted a space to entertain friends that was also homey, and able to withstand the rigours of daily life with children. They found their journey into the world of interior design led them to the rustic modern look.
“We had a general feel we wanted — we loved the warmth of rustic, but also clean-lined contemporary images, so the combination had to balance cooler lines and colours with a rustic warmth that would work together, not compete,” said the Paynes.
RUSTIC MODERN — MEANT TO BE LIVED IN
One of the major factors that went into deciding on a rustic modern theme for the home was that it’s a family home first and foremost. It’s meant to be lived in as well as admired.
Everything was carefully chosen by the homeowners for practicality as much as form, including the durable wood flooring, plumbing fixtures and built elements by Hasler Homes Ltd. When more rustic materials are chosen, wear and tear only adds character, as opposed to ruining the pristine nature of a sleek contemporary design.
