The Salish Sea House was completed in June ~ ready for the very happy homeowners to fully move into ~ to spend their first summer in their new dream home! The pride and high level of workmanship that was shown by all that worked to create their home was very appreciated by the owners ~ their kind words to all will not soon be forgotten.

Through the summer the landscaping has been taking place and will be a project that will be completed in stages as it is quite extensive ~ with the planting schedule most likely waiting until next spring, so I will wait until then to show completed exterior photos. Some photos and stories may be posted throughout the coming months though as the different components of the hardscaping are completed.

There is a large number of great photos to show you so I will keep my commentary brief! Except to say that, in some rooms, the fabulous light fixtures that were coming with the moving trucks were not installed when I took these photos, so another post on light fixtures will be in order, as well as some shots that I have missed!

Starting in the entry & great room… the fireplace and ocean views are certainly the focal points, lending a calm strength to the first rooms that you enter.

The wide angle lens distorts the entry doors slightly, the shot below shows a proper scale.

Tucked neatly behind the fireplace is the kitchen, with the bamboo cabinetry adding a warm counter point to the light filled rooms. Cream quartz countertops in two thicknesses keep the look serene and the sleek Miele appliances tuck away so neatly they don’t steel the show, as appliances so often can do.

and into the pantry…

The dining room in this home is so unique and the final touch,  an amazing light fixture (that we did happen to have a shot of !), that has 4- 500 tiny LED bulbs that light up the room in a most magical way. This light fixture stands alone as a piece of sculptural art!

Leaving the expansive, light filled great room we will head over to the right wing of the house, to the master bedroom, ensuite, office/den and powder room…

With the light fixtures and furniture now in place, this room as been transformed into an exquisite sanctuary. (the wide angle lens has made this room appear less wide than it actually is)

A modern, bright and yet organic style of design, with interior finishes that compliment and maximize the look that flows so seamlessly from area to area throughout the entire home.

The left wing of the house, with a guest room and main bathroom, a laundry room, a back hall with a steel & glass railing that leads to a very large bonus room and outside deck, as well as the 2 car garage outfitted with a recycling centre and sporting goods cabinetry, is yet to be photographed… I will include these rooms in a future post on the Salish Sea House!

I hope you enjoyed the tour through the main living areas of this custom designed dream home!
