A Kelly Deck-designed juicery embraces a "Scandifornian" vibe.
Call it “Scandifornian.” Nectar co-founder Tori Holmes requested that the team at Kelly Deck Design give the space a balance between the modern aesthetic of the Northern European region and the laid-back, hippie-ish look of a certain coastal state down south. The finished room—a compact juice bar in Vancouver’s Gastown—embraces a pastel palette and airy feel that’s simultaneously minimalist and bohemian.

And then there’s the custom content. “Everything’s been personalized to the space,” says Deck. The starting point was a wooden bar, made by Holmes’s father, that sits in the front window, lined by copper bar stools from Blu Dot, which, Deck adds, “get more character the more they’re used.” From there, custom millwork was designed by Lock and Mortar using pale, clean-cut Europly birch for a distinctly Scandinavian feel. Artfully integrated copper pipe lights by Western Living’s 2016 Industrial Designer of the Year, Matthew McCormick, add a warm glow; underfoot, the floors are lined with faded white and seafoam Moroccan tiles, which are made with concrete and have a wax finish. But the last homemade element might be the sweetest: the fresh-pressed juices on display do double duty, adding a pop of colour with their California-sunset hues.
