No beige allowed

The owners of this North Vancouver view property banished neutral colours from their home when they redesigned it a few years ago. Instead of blending into the background, the walls transform the house into a work of art, reflecting the tastes of the owners, and complements their interesting collections of figurines, sculptures, and motorcycles. From the street, the front of the house is very unassuming, but the back yard is where the real living takes place: a huge pool, decks, waterfall, and cabana make the most of the available space. I’m glad Clive and Steve chose to do a night shoot here, the colours stand out like neon against the dark blue evening sky.

We put this shoot off for several days waiting for sunny weather, but the best we could do in the time frame we had was a day of no rain. So although the late afternoon sun wasn’t basking the city in a golden glow as I had hoped, we did manage to get some amazing images of this penthouse suite in Vancouver’s newest landmark, Jameson House. It is the first North American residential project designed by renowned architects Foster + Partners, and features stone floors, floor to ceiling windows, and Canada’s first automated parking garage. This top floor suite also boasts an enormous deck with unobstructed views of the city. Monique Badun can fill you in on the details.
