A double-car garage is transformed into a dreamy modern space.


You would never know that this bright, modern bedroom in Jasper, Alberta, used to be a two-car garage. “It was an extremely tight space to work with,” says lead designer Matthew Leverone. His secret to overcoming the problematic square footage? Horizontal fir wall panelling finished in white, a high angled ceiling with strategically placed skylights and a pop of warm contrast in the door and pendant to draw in the eye. “You have to be creative in a tight space,” notes Leverone. “It’s all about the balance.” So he scrapped traditional bedside tables and floor lamps for built-in storage solutions and sconces, transforming the once-industrial garage into an inviting, airy cabin oasis.
