Description

Nestled in British Columbia between the Rocky Mountains and the sea, Canada's Pacific Northwest is home to interior designers and architects with their eyes on the outdoors, a varied population, and the future. In West Coast North: Interiors Designed for Living, design writer Julia Dilworth talks to them about their motivations and how they work, and showcases their projects, in full-colour photographs and their own words.

The 29 firms profiled here bring varied backgrounds and approaches to projects from old-home renos to new builds and from rooms and apartments to breweries, working closely with their clients and other firms. With a characteristic West Coast concern for the environment, they're keeping old builds out of landfills and bringing the beauty of the outside world inside, through windows, materials, and colour palettes. They're meeting the needs of people with young children, those working from home, and those with a flair for entertaining. They're inspired by local craftspeople and artists and by design from farflung places - the places from which the world has gathered on Canada's West Coast.

West Coast North is a guide to today's exciting B.C. designers. But it's also a source of inspiration - for homeowners, and designers elsewhere.
