A dreamy space takes some inspiration from the coast.

Great Spaces April Western Living 1Designer SnapshotWhen one Vancouver couple gave  Fox Design Studio carte blanche on their bare-bones master bedroom, lead designer Ben Leavitt drew inspiration from the townhome’s Coal Harbour location by using light fabrics, blue-grey hues and eye-catching accents that, together, create a coastal getaway fit for even the most faithful of land dwellers. The secret? Forgoing seaside staples such as ships and stripes for more subtle signs of waterfront living: airy floor-to-ceiling drapes, unexpected grey-washed wood panelling and a dramatic globe light made from capiz shell. “Coastal doesn’t have to mean nautical,” says Dave Leavitt, Fox Design Studio’s general manager. “It’s more of a feel.” And with playful additions such as a monochromatic resin lamp and cool Louis Ghost-inspired chair, it’s clear that the feeling is open to any—and all—interpretations.Get the LookGreat Spaces April Western Living 4Metallic elements—like this Gold Scallop pillow ($65)—are glam but still organic. caitlinwilsontextiles.comGreat Spaces April Western Living 2lamp ($300) contrasts beautifully against a custom wood-panelled wall. plaidfox.comGreat Spaces April Western Living 3The soft grey Benjamin Moore Marilyn’s Dress paint (from $47 per gallon) is the perfect neutral anchor for this room’s seaside palette. benjaminmoore.caGreat Spaces April Western Living 6The stitched  West Elm Dotted Stripe duvet cover ($139) channels homemade charm. westelm.caGreat Spaces April Western Living 5Though it looks like a paper lantern, the Capiz Shell pendant ($995) is actually made from oyster shell. restorationhardware.com
